- Ron's Italy Travel Journal >>
Ever cycled in Italia? If so, you are likely to remember the many hilltop towns…and of course the climbs to make it up there!
- Linda's Belize Travel Journal >>
I’m excited to be on the maiden voyage for Austin Adventures' new Belize adventure trip!
- Dan's Galapagos Travel Journal >>
It’s always easy to talk me into a tropical trip. When I got a call last March asking if I would be interested in joining a group of travelers to the Galápagos in June, it was a slam-dunk YES!
- Bill's Costa Rica Travel Journal >>
My Costa Rican Adventure began with a surprisingly easy trip from Billings to San Jose, where I spent the night at the beautiful Hotel Beacon.
- Michael's Machu Picchu Travel Journal >>
This is the way to visit Peru! I just returned from our Machu Picchu Exclusive Lodge-to-Lodge First Ascent adventure. It was an exciting new trip that had been in the works for nearly a year.
- Paul's Africa Travel Journal >>
Today we leave Zambia for Botswana. My wife Ronna and I are both very excited because we are going on our first safari trip. Plus, transferring camps is part of the adventure in adventure travel, as we are about to find out.
- Dan's Holland Travel Journal >>
From the minute I arrived in Amsterdam, I knew that this would not be my only trip to Europe and I couldn't wait to return. There is just something special about it all. I am not sure if it is the warmth of the people or the extensive history or both.
- Carol's Havasupai Travel Journal >>
In the last ten years I have had some very exciting adventures, but Havasupai was beyond my expectations… The Havasupai Canyon is one of 600 side canyons off the Grand Canyon. The name Havasupai translates to “the People of the Blue-Green waters.”
- Vanessa's South Africa Travel Journal >>
I’ll be bike riding through African wine country, kayaking to see penguins (PENGUINS! I had no idea there were penguins in Africa) and riding beneath a starry sky on a nighttime safari in the remote African wilderness…
