Another St. Patrick’s Day has passed and the green beer is put away for another year, but this special day brings back fond memories of a tiny land of emerald green, jolly Irish folklore and cherished legends.

Below us, as far as the eye could see, a patchwork quilt in many shades of green appeared,  as our aircraft made its descent into Dublin.  Its hard not to fall in love with a place that welcomes you with such a stunning sight before the wheels of our aircraft even touch the ground.

When the story of Alpine Wonderland 2013 is told, it centres on an amazing group of truly wonderful, kind-hearted, cheerful and very upbeat people who came together for 16 days to see and experience much of what is- in my opinion- the very best of what Europe has to offer. With the most glorious weather one could ever wish for from beginning to end, and an itinerary of my own creation devised to showcase Europe at its best, the stage was set for one of those genuine “once in a lifetime” journeys of discovery.

It's a common question, but one that has a rapidly changing set of answers — particularly where river cruising is concerned.

In the past, you could typically predict which sailings would sell out well in advance: Theme cruises or time-sensitive itineraries, like the spring Tulip Time river cruises that depart from Amsterdam, are historically some of the first to go. And as river cruising gains in popularity, the need to book sooner rather than later has only become more important.

That Ireland has '40 shades of green' is more than a cliche. It is real….and it’s beautiful! Beautiful not only because of its stunning shades of green; the beauty is also in its out-of-this-world landscapes, its’ charming and historic cities, its’ quaint villages, friendly people with their lovely accents, gentle spirits and a history and beauty which poets and authors have written about for centuries. Artists flock to the emerald isle for artistic inspiration and it’s easy to understand why.

The various regions of Italy offer a cornucopia of food to delight our senses and the regions of Tuscany and Umbria offer some of the best.

Savour its famous delights...freshly made pasta, fresh vine-ripened tomatoes, exquisite extra virgin olive oil, double baked biscotti, aged fine local wine, homemade tiramisu and cannoli pastries and its rich espresso and frothy cappuccino! And let's not forget the best gelato in the world!

The AfriCan Link Fund was established at Wesley United Church following the attendance of Mary Weismiller at the Ecumenical Decade for Women Conference in Durban, South Africa in 1992. It was there that Mary met the Light family. Since that time, she and Edna Light have spent well over two years in accumulated visits to each other's homes; much of it in Plettenberg Bay. Edna's endless struggle to feed, teach and help the area's disadvantaged sparked the creation of the fund.

As we sailed along the Croatian coast onboard Windstar Cruises ms Wind Surf, the Captain turned off the engines and at once we were floating on air or so it seemed. Nothing in sight but ocean, the emerald water mesmerizing and the only sound the occasional sail flapping in the warm breeze. For the past six days, we'd been living like royalty and on this last day at sea, we savoured every moment as Wind Surf made her way back to our starting point of Venice, Italy.

Arriving at Venice's Marco Polo Airport in the morning, we didn't wait long before our luggage arrived and we were outside waiting for ATVO bus number 5 which would take us to Piazzale Roma. From here, a two-minute taxi ride would take us to the pier, where we would store our luggage for the day, until it was time to depart on our Mediterranean cruise. We had a lot of exploring to do, on this, our first visit to Venice.
