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).

During our CraigTravel tour of Peru in 2007 our last stop was at Ceiba Tops Lodge on the Amazon River. A small, inconspicuous sign on the dining room wall invited contributions to an “Adopt a School Program”, sponsored by the Detroit Zoological Society. The sign aroused our curiosity. Following further investigation, we decided to support the program financially.

In February, 2013, I led a fabulous trip to Myanmar and Thailand. It was a trip of a lifetime! Why? I knew about the beauty of Thailand but was not very familiar with Myanmar. Myanmar turned out to be one of the most interesting and unique countries that I have ever visited.

Any time I page through a travel brochure - something I am prone to do - I have always found that Africa is the destination that beckons me most. I have had wonderful times touring ancient and beautiful cities and marvelling at man’s achievements in art and architecture, but being an avid bird and animal lover and a retired professional photographer, Africa offers me the things I love most.

Recently, I read an article on website cruisecritic.com, discussing safety tips to consider and be aware of before booking your cruise ship shore excursions and want to share these ideas with you. As the article stated, we're not suggesting that you should suppress the daredevil that lives within, but we do suggest that you be smart about how you select your activities and operators. You can have a great time and stay safe by following these tips.

With spring now upon us, our minds are undoubtedly thinking about the coming "green" season. And nowhere is this more relevant than in Ireland, the Emerald Isle and the destination that reminds me most of lush greens, wonderful coastlines, quaint villages, wonderful, friendly faces and, of course, the local pub - the centre of Irish social life. This year we are seeing more interest and more flights to Ireland than ever before. And could there be a better way to put the blahs of our long, frigid winter behind us than anticipating a journey to this ever-so-enchanting destination?

Our New Zealand and Australia adventure was coming to a close…last stop, Sydney. Nestled around its magnificent harbour, Sydney is a lively, multifaceted city, the pride of its citizens and the gateway to Australia.

Well here we are at the end of our trip
It has gone by at quite a zip.
Nairobi was the city of our first day
Weary we were after that long way,
But up bright and early the very next morn
To the elephants whose mothers were killed for their horn.

What fun it was to kiss a giraffe -
That will give the folks at home quite a laugh.
Then to Sweetwaters to sample the tent camp
Only thing missing was a big bright lamp!
