Grand Tour Of Germany


Magnificent scenery awaits you on this Germany vacation.  With visits to beer gardens, fairy tale castles, medieval towns, scenic rivers, vibrant cities and the enchanting Black Forest.  We will visit all the must-see sights, such as the Glockenspiel and Marienplatz in Munich, King Ludwig’s Neuschwanstein Castle (above), Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church in Berlin, the infamous cathedral in Cologne, Nuremberg’s Old Town and Oberammergau, home of the Passion Play. We also cruise on the prettiest part of the Rhine River, take the Eurotrain from Dusseldorf to Berlin, and travel the Romantic Road to visit the walled, medieval town of Rothenburg.  While we are in the Black Forest, be sure to purchase your world-famous Black Forest Cuckoo clocks.  They make great gifts for family back home.

Costa Rica Natural Paradise




Welcome to Costa Rica-the “rich coast,” friendly land of democracy and rare natural beauty.  With naturalist guides, see exotic birds and wildlife, hike in jungle rainforests, view volcanoes, soak in hot springs, and cruise through biological reserves.

The great thing about this tour is that it is fully escorted and all meals are included.  I have been on this Caravan tour, and I recommend it as one of the best I have ever taken.  Take a look at some of the places you will see and will be staying. If you are a nature lover, then this is the tour for you.

Give me a call if you would like more first hand information about this tour.  I would go to Costa Rica again tomorrow if I could.  It’s a great vacation and at a great price. 919.708.8217 or e-mail for more information at

The World’s Most Beautiful Voyage

free bergen - Copy

I have a unique trip for you this week.  We are going to visit Norway and the Northern Lights.  Our beautiful voyage journeys from Bergen to Kirkenes, Norway.  Along this route you will be visiting 34 ports-22 of them north of the polar circle on this 12 day voyage.  Any time of year, it’s a voyage like no other, and on this voyage, we will be seeing the “Northern Lights.”  The bright dancing lights of the aurora are actually collisions between electrically charged particles from the sun that enter the earth’s atmosphere. The lights are seen above the magnetic poles of the northern and southern hemispheres.  A truly magnificent sight.

Lonely Planet calls this Hurtigruten cruise “The World’s Most Beautiful Voyage.” We will be seeing it for ourselves on this March 9-21, 2017 departure.

Give me a call if you want to know more about this scenic voyage.
