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...

Peru Travel for 2015! Now that the new year is starting to pick up pace, I wanted to take the time to plant the seed of excitement for Peru travel in 2015 and share my experiences from my trip last year. In August, I set out to Peru for four weeks of exploring the contrasting, ancient-modern urban centers, traversing the Inca Trail, piranha fishing and swimming in the Amazon, boating on Lake Titicaca, and eating the best ceviche of my life in a quiet fishing village on the sea, all the while surrounded by warm, inviting and inspiring people. After having lived between Seattle and Argentina for almost nine years, Peru was an exciting window to another invigorating facet of Latin America’s rich diversity.   CUSCO My trip to Peru began in Cusco and it was largely a sensory experience. At 11,150 ft, I recall stepping out of the plane in Cusco and feeling...

Melinda and John are 4 time Wildland Alumni and returned from a custom trip to Peru that included, focus on organic gardens and community in the Sacred Valley, a inspiring time in Machu Picchu, hiking in the Colca Canyon-deepest canyon in the world, exploration in the famous white-stone city of Arequipa and ended with a culinary and artistic bang in Lima!   “Gretchen, you helped us plan this trip, and we thank you so much! No complaints, it was a great trip. We just want to let the Wildland team know of a few exceptional experiences/places!   Our favorite hotel (and they were all good) was El Albergue. We loved the atmosphere in the cafe, where folks off the train and hotel guests mingled. The food was exceptional, and the Pachamanca a fun experience. The focus on organic gardens, the school for sustainability, the seed saving process were so gratifying...
