Ways to Connect

One of the highlights of our Sunny Portugal tour is a savory dinner of excellent Portuguese cuisine and wine while local artists perform the traditional Fado, mournful folk music that expresses saudade, a feeling of longing and melancholia.

Lisbon Azulejos  (tiles)

Make sure you have your camera handy when you travel through Portugal because you'll be snapping photos all over the place once you see all the beautiful azulejos (tile) decorations.

These colorful, patterned ceramics are used to decorate the exteriors and interiors of everywhere from humble homes to palaces, churches and metro stations.  They add color to an already vibrant city and discovering them around every corner as you wander the maze of streets will be one of our many tour highlights.

When you visit Lisbon check out these top 10 most popular azulejos sites.

Do you like to travel but don’t always have a readily available travel companion?  It can be a bit daunting traveling to a foreign country alone; going through customs, finding transportation, safe lodging, making dining and sightseeing arrangements, not to mention language barriers.

Spring has actually sprung throughout Scotland with temperatures reaching into the mid 50s the week of March 10th.
Be sure to pack a rain jacket as it looks like we'll be getting some raining weather but at least it will be 50 degree rain.

Time is flying! Before you know it, it will be time to pack your bags and head out for your Scotland adventure.

The big question will now be, "What do I pack?"

The last time I ventured any further than Canada was in 1987 and I’m assuming travel has changed a great deal since then.  So I asked Leigh Barry and Nicole Walton, who went on our 2010 Ireland trip for a few pointers.

Their #1 travel tip…
Less is more.
Do not over pack.
Bring what is necessary, but don't bring too many "just-in-case" items.

European power, power converters, plugs and more - What you need to know about plugging in on our Discover Scotland Tour.

 

When you travel through Europe, one thing you’ll notice in your hotel room might very well be the wall sockets. They're different. They're big.

The second thing you'll probably notice is that there aren't a lot of them. Power, you see, is quite expensive in Europe.
