ACTIVITY LEVEL: Easy
EasyFor people looking to exercise their minds more than their bodies. There’s minimal walking and not too many stairs.
ModerateThese programs get you on your feet and include activities such as walking up to a mile in a day through a city and standing in a museum for a few hours.
ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.
How is the United States represented abroad by its diplomats? Find out from the diplomats themselves! Accept this rare invitation to go behind doors that are usually closed to the public as you meet retired Foreign Service Officers and discuss the intriguing challenges they faced in pursuing American foreign policy objectives. Learn how our diplomats cooperate with the military in the international arena and communicate with citizens in other countries through “public diplomacy.”


Highlights

• Retired Foreign Service Officers take you inside the daily life they lived during their time in foreign countries.
• Examine a wide variety of issues involving America’s friends and adversaries around the world, focusing on current and traditional hot spots.
• Enjoy some fascinating "Tales of the Foreign Service" from a career diplomat with lots to share.
