Ross and Lucy have travelled extensively through six continents, including some time living abroad. Leading an active life helps keep them in shape for the trips they do each year. They are lucky to live in Muskoka, one of North America's premier summer vacation spots. Clean water, delightful scenery and enchanting history is kept alive today in wooden boats and cottage verandahs. Lucy is a retired educator and Ross worked for an international consultancy. One of travel's greatest appeals for them is experiencing culture and how it varies from place to place. One of the aspects they truly appreciate about Craig Travel is the friendships made while 'on the road' that continue from adventure to adventure. Now that they are entering their 10th year of leading tours and cruises, the groups they lead around the world normally include some of these friends. They both enjoy the fun of learning and visiting new places and meeting new faces. They are excited by undertaking itineraries to exotic and new destinations while sharing Craig's world with new and old friends alike. They look forward to sharing each journey with all those who join them!

Originally from Waterloo, Sandy has had an interesting career as an account executive with the Waterloo Regional Record and as a humour columnist for an over 40 women’s magazine that gives her an opportunity to share her joy of life. After raising her three children in Wellesley where she was involved in starting a theatre group, she has now moved back to Waterloo to indulge her affinity with water at cottage in Grand Bend. A passion for travel has taken her across Canada, America, Europe and most of the Caribbean. Driving across Ireland with her daughter was one of her favourite trips - but nothing can beat staying in a family owned hotel on the Amalfi coast. Life offers so many adventures and there isn't a destination that she has been to that hasn't delighted and added to her knowledge. She looks forward to travelling with you on each exciting journey.
