Dear Real Traveller,

Welcome to our first electronic mailing!

We are very excited to be in our 19th year of providing worldwide adventure travel programs for both the seasoned traveller and those venturing out for the first time. We offer both all-women's and coed programs to domestic and international destinations. Each year we reflect upon our original mission: to create travel opportunities that promote an ethic of care and nurture a sense of global relationship, and each of our programs promises to honor this mission. A result of this commitment has been the rich and lasting friendships we've made with hundreds of spirited travellers. We'll introduce you to places where the old rules of hospitality still apply, where residents still receive visitors with open hearts and stories to share, and where the world gives generously to the gracious guest.

You will also find that travelling in a small group allows for us to select appropriate ecological areas and modes of travel, a personalized experience and meaningful camaraderie. We invite you to join us on an adventure crafted by experts that is both exhilarating and rejuvenating, and contributes in a positive way to our global community.
