Custom Patagonia: Way beyond expectations! Gary was a solo traveler, outdoor-enthusiast looking for a customized Patagonia Adventure. His wild style and enthusiasm is the epitome of what we love to see in our travelers! “The basic idea of the trip was mine as I wanted to visit and experience Patagonia. I had read about Patagonia Camp but knew little else about how to put this total "package" together. I love the outdoors and wanted to experience as much of Patagonia as I could within my time constraints. The end result of the trip clearly showed me that Gretchen listened to me in our initial discussions concerning what I was looking to do and experience. I very much appreciated her input and willingness to alter the details of the trip when necessary. Looking back I cannot honestly say what you could have done to have made things better or easier.

Such a great experience and wonderful people! This family for four just got back from our Best of Peru: Machu Picchu and the Amazon adventure and had a blast with their guides! “Hi-we had a great trip! Such a great experience and wonderful people! Yuri -our guide in Cusco and MP was just SO wonderful to us (and we did torture him a bit!). Max, our driver, was also a very sweet guy! Nick was funny and cool--also gave us a great business idea: b-day parties for dogs as his friend in Lima does. It was so nice to have someone guiding us through the transportation system there (often subject to change we learned!)... printing the boarding passes was priceless!! Jesus at Inkaterra Reserva Amazonica was great-amazing English and such a nice guy! Besides brief altitude and stomach illness experienced- things were very good and I thank you! Thank you so much for everything! -Diane”   Your friendly Peru...

All Around Asia Carla and Stan took a meandering and adventurous custom trip through Vietnam, Myanmar,  Malaysia, and Singapore. They traveled from North to South In Vietnam, cycling through the old quarter of Hanoi, kayaking in Halong Bay, and visiting the Cu Chi tunnels in Ho Chi Minh. From there, they flew to the mystical land of Myanmar where they wandered the ancient temples of Bagan, bathed with elephants in the jungles of Kalaw, and toured the unique biosphere of Inle Lake by boat. Then it was off to sample the tastes of Malaysia with an emphasis on beach time on the UNESCO island of Langkawi. A final stop at the city-state of Singapore brought their 31-day trip to an end although it will remain an inspiration for all of us planning trips to Asia.  Hear it from Carla and Stan: "It was another amazing adventure from Wildland and we met so many...
Guest Video From Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands I love my job as Program Director for Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands anyway, but when I begin my Monday morning by opening an email from a just returned traveler and seeing an outstanding video of his family having the time of their lives makes even a not-so-great day fade to the background. Two families, long-time friends, traveling through the Ecuadorian countryside and onto the Galapagos Islands. As Bryan (the videographer) says “I am glad you all enjoyed it. Thanks for arranging the trip, the video was easy to make with all the great footage and good times.” This just puts a giant smile on anyone’s face, it says EVERYTHING about the experience of traveling with your loved ones to very special places on our planet! Check out their video: Galapagos family vacations are not only an unforgettable experience, but also an incredible learning opportunity for children and adults. Your friendly...

Inside the Kitchen of Mina Meet Khun Mina, a charming hostess, cook, and grandmother, and friend to every visitor who arrives at her modest home on the small island of Koh Yao Noi in southern Thailand’s Phang Nga Bay. Her home, surrounded by rice paddies and roaming water buffalos, is also a wonderful Thai cooking school. Khun Mina loves to entice her customers with the secrets of her family recipes that unlock the smells and tastes of true southern Thai delicacies. This wise lady also imparts life lessons by sharing her passion for growing and preparing fresh, healthy, organic Thai food. Mina’s latest venture for growing her cooking school and her self-sufficient lifestyle is planting riceberry. She hired three workers to help her grow this new hybrid rice grain, a cross pollination of Hom Nin and Thai Hom Mali (jasmine rice). Riceberry was developed by Thailand’s Kasetsart University and is a great source of iron...
