Instagram is a great resource of inspiration when planning a trip.   

No matter how major or minor a destination is you can find someone on Instagram who has been been there and posted their pics. If you narrow down your search words you'll find even more detail about trails to hike, places to eat, coffee shops, etc. I always consult Instagram when planning a trip to find inspiring photos that give us ideas for our itinerary.

November 2018 (Exact dates TBD)

We've had lots of requests to put together a Ladies' Christmas Market Cruise for years so we decided to organize one in 2018. We're planning a cruise along the scenic Danube to visit the magical Christmas markets of Austria and Germany. In addition to the markets, other excursions include wine tasting in the Wachau Valley, visiting the charming cities of Cesky Krumlov or Salzburg with an option to add extra days in Vienna. If you are interested, please click here to contact Larry or call him at 858.488.2569 to place your name on the list. And gentlemen are welcome too!
