    Our Latest Intentions

    While many of our planned Private Journey destination countries are welcoming fully-vaccinated Canadians once more, we are continuing to watch the status of recent COVID variants and are keeping our fingers crossed that our recommended vaccinations will protect us even better than our previous flu shots had done. (The flu shots were only about 50% effective, but protected us quite well overall).
    We are also tuned in to international destination restrictions including specific required vaccination certificates, test results and quarantine requirements. We are happy to say that many destinations are improving bit by bit as more and more of their residents opt for vaccination. It's also comforting to know that vaccine developers and manufacturers are on top of required adjustments to upcoming vaccines and provision of pills that help you fight off the symptoms of COVID-19. So, overall we are optimistic but careful at the same time.
    As many of you know, we have spent more than 20 years putting our journeys together and are confident that our guests realize that the itineraries are designed especially for them and that the details are adjusted as needed every single time we offer them. So, right now we are still making adjustments in what we are offering and what you see below may take place as planned or may simply be delayed from time to time as required. Even prior to SARS-CoV-2 / COVID, our Private Journeys were, and are always conducted "privately". Our small-group of guests always totalled sixteen or less - sometimes even just two guests! We always travel in our own private vehicle, our daily meals and happy hours are spent among ourselves and many of our accommodations are in small hotels where we often take over the entire building.
    So, whether SARS-CoV-2 / COVID remains a manageable pandemic or even improves to epidemic status, like flu has, all our upcoming planned journeys will be even more carefully designed and tweaked as required to ensure that every day aims at minimizing any possible overexposure to others outside of our group. As well, our Planning Guides for each of the specific journeys will cover all the recommended preparations for ensuring that you will be prepared to avoid any difficulties related to COVID.
    We present below a quick list of some of the journeys we are currently offering. These are journeys we have carefully researched, designed and tweaked annually ourselves during our regular visits over the years. As always, these upcoming voyages have been designed for those who love variety in their travel - a little luxury, a bit of roughness, exposure to local food and drink, some humour, some seriousness, an overall examination of local society and a chance to be with a small number of friends who are on the same wavelength...
    and “fully-vaccinated”!
    As many of you know, we have other journeys also available which we are not showing yet. It really helps us if you would call us or email us and let us know what you are looking for.
    Here's hoping we'll get to be with you again soon! If you have any questions at all, please call us.

    Best of Chile and Argentina

    We have always loved our journeys through South America and over the years we fell in love with the amazing long and narrow country of Chile, the outstanding culture of Argentina and the beautiful shared scenic southern region of Patagonia. This time around we have added the Atacama desert in the north of Chile to the itinerary.

    Best of Sri Lanka

    One of our favourite trips ever! The island of Sri Lanka is an incredibly diverse destination. We start at beaches on the Indian Ocean before moving on to the historic capitals in the Ancient Triangle and the amazing site of Sigiriya. We then head for the central mountains and the former capital, Kandy. After a few days here, we move on to the amazing country tea plantations where we are treated like royalty for a few days. Then, we head out on safari in Yala National Park for a few more days, then move on to the ancient Portuguese port of Galle. Finally, we return to Colombo for two days before heading home.
