New year, new adventures abroad and closer to home

Feb 22nd, 2019 | By | Category: Adventures

It is the beginning of a new year with new hopes, dreams and adventures. Trump hopes and dreams of his wall. I dream of the house I am wanting to start building. Colin O’Brady is thankful that his Antarctic is over and he has accomplished something that others can only dream about

Taking a cue from Colin O’Brady, you can achieve a small part of his, and possibly your, dream. We have group space on Princess Cruises sailing out of Santiago  Chili on a 16 day cruise ending in Buenos Aires, Argentina, starting on Jan. 5, 2020.  We already have a nice start to this group and hope that you will find this adventure exciting. It is rare when one of the South America cruises actually goes to Antarctica.  This one spends four days cruising the area, with a naturalist on-board teaching us about this mystic land. Other stops include Punta Arenas, Ushuaia, Cape Horn, the Falkland Islands and Montevideo.  Space is very limited so don’t wait long to sign up. There are a male and a female looking for roommates if you are interested

A little closer to home, a nice group has come together to sail out of Seattle on the Norwegian Bliss on a seven-days Alaska cruise starting Aug. 18, with stops in Juneau, Skagway, Glacier Bay, Ketchikan and Victoria before returning to Seattle. This is the latest ship in the NCL line with all the latest innovations in cruising.

Want to add another river to your list of “I have done that?” How about the Nile? Collette Tours has a Treasures of Egypt trip May 1-13 which just might be calling you. See the Giza, Pyramids, Sphinx, the Museum of Egyptian Antiquities, the Valley of the Kings, and take a four-night Nile River cruise.

Another Collette Tour goes to this year’s latest tourist destination. Fly out of Seattle to Reykjavik, Iceland.  We are holding space for July 14-22.  Take time to explore this country of “Fire and Ice.” See steaming lava fields and massive glaciers. Travel the stunning Golden Circle and stop at the famous thermal area of Geysir.

Rather do something much closer to home? Then check out the Harness Races in Canada, the tulip fields of La Conner, and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation Discovery Center.
