Unlocking the Mediterranean What's my favorite Wildland Adventure? I'm often asked what my favorite Wildland Adventure is...and I have to say, I love Turkey! And I'm not alone, our Turquoise Coast Odyssey consistently receives rave reviews as one of the most culturally rich trips of a lifetime. I admit. I'm biased. I have traveled to Turkey all my life to visit my Turkish relatives. Travel with us to Turkey and you're greeted as family by our exceptionally knowledgeable and fun-loving guides. Meet Alper Ertubey!  He has been leading Wildland Adventures for 29 years, and has introduced scores of our travelers to their favorite home away from home.  He's also the one to talk to about food...passionate about the cuisine of his homeland, there is no one better to share a meal and a drink (or two) with, Şerefe! The combination of experiences on our Turquoise Coast Odyssey is second to none; exploring the bazaars and backstreets of Istanbul, hiking surreal landscapes leading to subterranean churches in Cappadocia, and a relaxing voyage along...
Ebola Update: Southern and Eastern Africa Safari Travel Unaffected Updated as of March 8, 2015 Fresh updates from the CDC and World Health Organization have provided valuable insight into the diminishing Ebola epidemic in West Africa. Reports since January 2015 confirm that the spread of Eboloa has waned in West Africa and never spread into Eastern or Southern Africa.   In regards to travel to Africa, the CDC warns against travel to the affected countries in West Africa. However, for Eastern and Southern Africa, there are no restrictions or warnings (Click here to see CDC’s travel warnings) and no cases of Ebola. It’s important to consider the vast distance between the source of the outbreak in West Africa and where travelers visit for safaris in Eastern and Southern Africa. The info graphics below help put that distance and the sheer size of the African continent into perspective.    Due to the extreme distances and geographical barriers between Eastern and...

Our 27 Years of Rumba Around The World Valentine's Day is our wedding anniversary, so here's a little homage to Anne.     I met Anne at a Bochinche salsa concert at Seattle's annual Bumbershoot music festival. And do you know the first word out of her mouth that she said to me, "No." And the next five words were, "I said, no, didn't I?" (I won't repeat my lame pickup line.) Then on our first date, a picnic in a local park, I forgot my wallet when we were buying some deli items so she had to write a check. In spite of myself, 27 years of rumba around the world since then has spun many tales of romance, adventure, and an ever growing family here in Seattle and in so many friends and families in communities and homes the world over.     In those days when we were just starting out I planned an adventure...
