Many times while travelling with our group members, I have heard “I’d love to do a river cruise, but it seems so expensive.”  This is a legitimate comment from prospective first time river cruisers and an understandable one.  At first glance, looking at the cost of a comparable number of days on a similar class ocean cruise compared with a similar length river cruise, it is likely the river cruise price will be somewhat higher.

Norway is a beautiful country.  The scenery is spectacular and the country isn't spoiled by any commercialism whatsoever....no billboards, no one selling trinkets, no tourist souvenirs.

Timkat is the Ethiopian Orthodox celebration of Epiphany, and is an important event in the country's Christian heritage which dates back to the very early days of Christianity.

We were leaving the Mara Ashnil Luxury Tented Camp in East Africa.  Luxury tents was an absolute understatement. We had been on safaris where we had seen a pregnant cheetah with her kill, rode in a hot air ballon, witnessed lions, giraffes, zebras, hippos and many more animals really up close. We were now to fly to the Serengeti. We had four Land-cruisers with six people in each. Terrific on the safaris. Everyone had their own space and had complete visibility of everything. We had a great group who were very friendly and we all shared the excitement of the days.

1. For starters, more than 99 percent of the 4.3 million people who live in Norway speak Norwegian, the official language. Norwegian has two written forms of language: Bokmål (literally "book language") and Nynorsk ("New Norwegian"). Although both have the same legal recognition, Bokmål is more common. You will see both on signs throughout the country.

I must admit – I am very lucky. I am able to travel to many parts of the world and since I plan many of our programs, I am able to do it as I would like. So when I come across a destination that surprises me in a most pleasant way, a destination which is not what I might expect, a destination that really sets itself apart, I want to talk about it.

Our journey to Sri Lanka and the Maldives was just such an adventure – it was a journey that surpassed all my expectations.

Once again the world is watching Israel and Gaza. It seems that every day there is a new truce and every day one side or the other breaks it and the horror of war resumes. The conflict has been going on for over a month and while each day brings a renewed hope for lasting ceasefire (peace regretfully is a word that we simply can not use at the moment), we can only hope that calmer heads prevail. As I write this, the Israelis are pulling back their land forces, the tunnels have been closed and both sides have agreed to another three day truce which for the moment is holding.

Our coach pulled into the sleepy little Cotswold village of Bampton, Oxfordshire, England on a bright, sunny Sunday morning.  I felt certain the residents would be rolling their eyes and thinking “here we go again; another load of curious tourists disturbing our peace.”  For this little village of Bampton is where most of the outside scenes for the popular TV series, Downton Abbey are filmed.
