Looking ahead to 2014, we are excited to announce several, new small group journeys for women.     Each of these programs will give you the opportunity to travel with like-minded women who want to deeply experience the world in an upscale, but relaxed manner.  Our goal is to create experiences that allow you to connect with the essence of another culture and by doing so, enrich your life and broaden your horizons.

Here is what we are planning for 2014:

Spring in Spain – May, 2014 – Madrid, Barcelona, Cordoba, Seville & Granada
Spain is alive in the spring with the intoxicating scent of orange blossoms and the excitement of festivals.  On this program you learn about tapas, flamenco, Andalusian music, Spanish wines and the great artists and architects of Spain.

 

 

 

Paris & Provence in Summer – July, 2014 – Paris, Avignon, Arles, the Luberon, L’Isle-sur-la-Sorque & Mane
Enjoy Paris, one of the world’s most beautiful cities and the charming villages of Provence during the long, relaxed days of summer.  Learn about French wines, cooking in the Provencal style, pastry making and of course, lavender!  Visit charming, local markets and tour the L’Occitane en Provence factory.

 

Authentic  Ireland – early September, 2014 –   Dublin, Dingle, the Ring of Kerry, Connemara & Galway
Wild and beautiful, inspiring and spiritual, Ireland’s charms will seduce you.  Enjoy a private cooking class at Ballymaloe Cookery School, hike in some of the world’s most beautiful national parks and listen to traditional music in authentic pubs.

 

 

Italy – Rome & the Amalfi Coast – late September, 2014 – Rome, Sorrento, Positano
Italy is delightful in the autumn when the crowds thin and the temperatures cool down. The light becomes more golden and the harvest is celebrated.  Learn about traditional Roman food and Italian wines, visit a local family and learn to make limoncello, take a private boat to see the Blue Grotto and attend a colorful and passionate opera.
