Program #12831 | December 21-26, 2013
We thoroughly enjoyed the program. The accommodations and the food were excellent. The mix of sightseeing, lectures, and free time was just right. The group leader and lecturer were knowledgeable. And, as always, our fellow travelers were interesting and interested. What a great way to end 2013!

Program #1384 | Sept. 14-19, 2014
After lunch, many of us explored the Georgia Sea Turtle Center which serves as a hospital for ill and injured sea turtles. In addition to viewing the many exhibits, we were able to observe an operation on a loggerhead turtle and see the concern with which the caregivers returned the turtle to his tank in the hospital.

Program #15211 | Sept. 7-12, 2014
Dinner tonight is lobster! A few people chose to have steak, instead, but I was eager to have a lobster dinner - after all, we're in Maine, learning about the history of the lobstermen of the region!

Program #12145 | May 18-29, 2014
There's a stir in the air this morning as we hop on our bicycles and put the two-night stay at our countryside Dessau hotel in the rear-view mirror. We'll get our first glimpse of the Elbe River today; even cross it via a ferry.

Program #4909 | September 28 - October 6, 2013
Bryce Canyon being closed, our leaders had a plan B for today and it was terrific. The first half of the day we biked from Ruby's Inn to Kodachrome State Park along a fairly light traffic highway. Weather was again gorgeous and we had more scenic views of the geological beauty.

Program #21404 | June 8-13, 2014
During the six days that the program lasted, I took hundreds of photos of redwood trees, but none of the photos I took could portray the sheer awesomeness of being in the presence of these magnificent creations!

Program #20996 | June 8-13, 2014
After five days of doing nothing but hitting golf balls, playing golf, talking about golf, watching golf and reading about golf, you'd think that by day six it'd be time for some tennis. Au contraire. Having arrived a casual golf fan, I'm leaving a little bit addicted.

Program #20612 | March 13-29, 2014
We danced our way across the street to experience the Cuban musical style and rhythms of changüí. The manager of the Casa de Changüí explained to us that the sounds of changüí consist of a marímbula, bongos, tres (Cuban guitar), güiro and one or more singers. After becoming acquainted with the instruments, we were treated to our own private concert complete with a guest appearance by our driver Willie on the maracas!

Program #21305 | February 17 - March 1, 2014
We headed to the port to board our ship, the Louis Cristal. For the next four days, we will be sailing around Cuba on her as she makes her inaugural season on this run. We will be amongst the first Americans to circumnavigate Cuba by cruise ship!

Program #21309 | January 22 - February 7, 2014
After dinner Ernesto, our indigenous guide, paddled us across the lake and into a long U-shaped canal in search of caymen – small crocodiles though they can grow to five feet in length – and other wildlife. On the return trip to the Lodge, the air was soft and the stars bright, and cicadas and frogs were in full voice. We were too lulled by the shush-shushing of Eduardo's paddle to talk.
