Let's Go to Greece My son, Benjamin, and I are so excited to be landing in Greece this summer and we are inviting you to join us on our Escorted Family Adventure in the Peloponnese & Cyclades this August 17-30th! We are gathering a small group of like-minded, adventurous families to climb to hill-top temples with us, hike through river canyons, and explore the white-washed island streets. After Benjamin completed a Greek Mythology unit in his 5th grade class, we decided now is the perfect time to visit the mythical birthplace of our favorite gods: Athena, Apollo and Artemis. We can’t wait to walk in the actual places where many of these tales were said to take place. It certainly helps that the ancient sites are adjacent to the lovely Aegean Sea where we can swim in the crystal water and relax on the warm sands. Plus the Greek food is legendary! We will...

Nicaragua with children? Si! Nicaragua is an ideal family destination. Explore volcanoes and, wildlife nature reserves, sleepy surf towns with endless unspoiled beaches, charming colonial cities to explore by horse-drawn carriage, bike, or on foot.  Family friendly hotels offer kid-style cuisine, hammocks for napping and free form swimming pools along with plenty of outdoor activities for children 5 and older up. Recently a Wildland family traveled with their 6 and 10 year olds who enjoyed sports matches with local children chocolate tasting at the Chocolate Museum and discovered pottery making at a local artisan’s house. Shared activities are fun and rewarding for locals and Wildland travelers as it creates a sense of unity and joy knowing your adventure is contributing to the economic well-being of local communities while preserving their culture, traditions and environment.  Laurie shared the following with us from her family trip to Nicaragua.  "One of the main reasons we chose this...

Savings in South America Blossoming cherry trees, tulips and daffodils up north mean that the leaves of the beech trees in Torres del Paine and Los Glacieres National Park have all turned red and gold, sure signs that winter in the Southern hemisphere is not far off. But it isn’t too early to start planning your trip for next season to... For the first time in years, the cost of travel to Patagonia has decreased!

A cup of cocoa to save our Mother Earth Here's a good start-of-the-week comeback on the post weekend question, "What did you do this weekend?" "Oh, I participated in a sacred Mayan cocoa ceremony to restore balance in our Mother Earth."  A few months back I was drawn to a handsome, long-haired young man who stood out in a crowd of guides and outfitters at a gathering of adventure travel professionals. Aaron El Leon and his partner Milena Worsham operate Running Buffalo Journeys from their home base in Atitlan, Guatemala. We hit it off as new life-long friends and they offered to hold a sacred cacao ceremony for a small group. Just by virtue of the spiritual nature of Aaron and Milena, which is what drew me to them in the first place, I knew the ceremony was more than a get together to have a cup of warm cocoa.  Indeed, we are not talking about processed cocoa or even...
