A Tomar Una Copa Festiva! (To a Celebratory Drink!) Fourth of July is just around the corner and what better way to celebrate than with a special festive drink from my favorite destination- Fernet from Argentina!? One of my first memories of going out with friends in Argentina, was on a warm night in March- Argentina’s late summer. A well-intentioned friend handed me a glass of dark medicinal, smelling liquor, better known as Fernet, and then proceeded to flood the glass with Coca-Cola. “Toma! Es nuestra bebida nacional! Drink! It's our national drink” I took a gulp.  The bitter flavor of Fernet perfectly complimented by the sweet, fizzy cola is refreshing and absolutely bizarre- it took me years of living in Argentina to finally appreciate and, dare I say, LIKE, Fernet! Though my first experience with trying Fernet was one mostly of utter shock at the complex and foreign flavor, I have grown to love it and associate it with...
Turquoise Coast Odyssey: Impressed By Planning, Details and Wealth of Experiences Julie and Bob Reed, and Jane Kaplan, were among a small group of Wildland travelers on our Turquoise Coast Odyssey. Here's what they had to share about their guide, and deep personal experiences in Istanbul, Cappadocia, Ephesus and cruising in a gulet along the Mediterranean coast:     "It is very hard to say what we enjoyed the most, every experience was unique and offered its own insights. Istanbul was overwhelming and amazing, we enjoyed the energy. Cappadocia was so different, would have loved another day there because our time there was very busy. Sirence with Ephesus was wonderful, the history was hard to comprehend as was all the history in Turkey, but our guide Ozlem made the experience exceptional.    Ozlem was wonderful, she was very enthusiastic about everything on the trip, and especially knowledgeable on the history and ruins as well as insights into Turkey today. She took care...
Meet & Greet with Kelsey, Wildland's Asia Program Director Hello! It’s nice to “meet” all of you! My name is Kelsey and I’m the new program director for Wildland’s trips to Asia. I’m coming into this position with what I like to consider both hard and soft skills. I have the travel experience and academic knowledge (Asian Studies minor in college) to be a specialist for many parts of this sprawling continent. My first of many trips to Asia took me through six different countries in 9 months and it was love at first sight (and taste). I’m always planning my next trip back to Asia and I like to say that we’re in a committed and successful long distance relationship.  I’m also coming in with a lot of enthusiasm, I love traveling and I love connecting with people who are excited about traveling. The people I have met through Wildland so far have been so wonderful and it’s great...

Guest Travel Blogs Gone Wild! After returning from traveling 35 days in Africa from Cape Town to Zambia, I just read through all the Wildland blogs posted in the past month by our staff and WOW, what a gold mine of heart-felt appreciation from our guest reviews, and expert information from our destination program directors!   We've been calling on our travelers to share their experiences more and now there  are so many informative, inspiring, insightful blog entries. Especially when read all together as I just did they are a wonderful reflection of what 'The Wild Style' is all about in terms of custom itineraries, flexible schedules, exceptional guides, meaningful personal experiences, special activities, and lots of great food, wine and fun. Charlie and Muki shared why they chose Wildland among the many trips and companies they compared:   “We chose this itinerary after we looked at multiple Patagonia itineraries from different companies. This trip...
Complain, Complain, Complain: Everywhere on this trip they complained.   I've never traveled with such a bunch of complainers!     What with everywhere we went and everything we enjoyed, the amazing wildlife we encountered, the luscious wines we tasted and delicious cuisine, one would think the group wouldn't complain. But everywhere we went on our 19-day Wine and Wildlife Safari through South Africa and Zimbabwe they complained.     The complaining started after the first two days in sunny Cape Town and we moved on for a few days in Stellenbosch and Franschhoek, then four nights on safari at Tanda Tula in the Timbavati concession in Greater Kruger, then Victoria Falls and finally four more nights in Hwange National Park in Zimbabwe. At each place there were more complaints for the same reason:  Every time we were just settling in to these beautiful places, enjoying amazing meals and wine tastings, and getting to know people in the wineries,...
