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.

Vintage wines, lush valleys, magnificent mountains, cascading waterfalls, fascinating cities and absolutely wonderful food characterize one’s experience of the dual Spanish speaking South American countries of Chile and Argentina. Although the visits to top wineries are definite highlights of this excursion, the scenery offered provides a peaceful and stimulating rolling vista to enjoy.

The pubs and craic (good times) in Ireland are as good as advertised, but there was much more that made my recent (and second) visit to the emerald isle special.  I, and a wonderful group of Craig Travel clients, toured the north and south of this charming island for two sunny weeks.  That’s right…sunny, no rain till near the end when a light shower of “Irish mist” brought out umbrellas for a very short time.

India has always held an amazing fascination for me. I started travelling in earnest almost 50 years ago and India is likely my third most visited international destination (after Australia & New Zealand – the USA is not even close). My first visit to India was back in 1971 (I entered India on the eve of the Bangladesh War) and that visit took me from the Himalayas to Cape Comorin (southern tip) and from Bombay to Calcutta. Since then, I have returned to India on many occasions and have always been fascinated by the experience.

While some journeys are harder to pack for than others e.g. travelling through various climates in one tour, there are a few things I have learned over the years which make packing a little easier, at least for me.  Here are my most helpful packing tips, geared towards women, but most can apply to men as well.  There are other great packing tips and I’d love to hear yours.  These are the ones that work best for me.

When you leave Canada, familiar sources and systems for care and support won't be close at hand.  Your available options for health care may be uncertain, unreliable or possibly unsafe.  Take extra precautions and consider following this unofficial Traveller's motto: expect the best but prepare for the worst.

Leaving Canada in November is energizing. Even though we were departing on a night flight, group anticipation and excitement was high. We were off to one of the most exotic places of the New World. In so many ways Peru is special. Topography and climate hugely vary from tropical rain forest to alto plano desert, from 40C to 0; History spans millennia; architecture is world renown and, culture and cooking is a rich infusion of Spanish, Incan, plus other native nations and, Japanese.

BURMA (my preferred name for the country), has undergone many changes since I first travelled there back in 1971.  Back then, visitors were extremely limited and one could only secure a Visa for 3 days. What a whirlwind adventure that was.   I managed to visit Mandalay and Bagan as well as Rangoon (modern Yangon).
