PostCards from the World, My Dreams of Peace We believe in the power of travel to create understanding, brotherhood and peace on the planet. This is a really wonderful project that many Wildland family travelers, young travelers and teachers might be interested in participating and supporting. TIMOTCA, in partnership with Artsonia and Teachers Discovery, is connecting thousands of teachers around the world to have their students share “PostCards From The World, My Dream of Peace”. Creating small original art works, this project celebrates the creative spirit that is within all of us and has the power to change the world.     TIMOTCA, a nonprofit organization founded in 1980 launched the project to foster peace and cultural understanding through art and to build a Peace Monument and Cultural Center presenting the visual and performing arts of every country on earth. What a great project!      Art Beyond Borders is the first collection of postcards from 60 different...
I recently set out on a two week reconnaissance mission to Morocco with the objective of searching for new routes and making deeper connections with the locals. I accomplished my goal and we are excited to announce we have redesigned our trips to Morocco, including new expert local guides who are your personal connection to the people and places you visit. Also expect to see plenty more photos and incredible stories from my trip to Morocco.   This was my second trip to Morocco, but the difference this time was the accompaniment of a local guide. With his help I found some extraordinary places which gave deeper insight into the culture, traditions and history of this marvelous country. From incredible adventure activities like sandboarding in the Sahara to authentic cultural experiences such as dinner with local Berbers, it was truly a trip of a lifetime. I sincerely hope everyone gets the chance to...
  Dreaming of exploring Peru this summer but still haven’t made plans? You’re in luck, because for a limited time, we are offering an exclusive discount of $250 per person for the remaining spaces on our Escorted Trek to Machu Picchu + Virgen del Carmen Festival! It’s not too late to join our small group of trekkers July 5-18, 2013 as we hike around Mt. Salkantay along Incan foot trails to Machu Picchu. Mentioned in the May issue of Travel + Leisure magazine, this trip is the perfect, active introduction to the true essence of the Peruvian Andes – the soul of the country. While hiking between remote mountain lodges, you’ll connect with the deeper subtleties of Peru’s ancient landscape and the traditional Quechua culture which reveres the mountain peaks as Apus, or spirits of the Andes. Space on this exclusive journey is limited and the savings are only valid...

Once in awhile, something comes along that truly fires the imagination, capturing a long-buried fantasy. For me, that idea can be found alive & well in our Bedouin Trek to Petra, and I believe this is what the good folks at National Geographic Traveler also recognized when they selected the Trek for their 2013 “50 Tours of a Lifetime.” Petra itself is every American kid’s holy grail – a fabulous, larger-than-life “lost city” hidden away behind steep, impenetrable walls. Add to that the notion of reaching this object of desire by way of trekking across rocky mountain passes, through brilliant sandstone river valleys, and camping with Bedouins –Bedouins, for petes sake! - under starry desert skies, and you have the stuff of every adventurous day dreamer’s dearest fantasy. But of course a successful trip is not made of fantasy alone, and with the Bedouin Trek to Petra’s seamless support structure,...

  I love everything about traveling, including the journey to get to where I'm going. My trip to Morocco started with a flight from Seattle to Frankfurt and something I have always enjoyed about flying is looking out the window. For me it's better than tv, as I flew over the cascades and the Canadian Rockies I couldn't help but dream about climbing all the great peaks I saw. Then I was lucky enough to watch an electric sunrise over Iceland. Once I landed in Frankfurt I decided to make the most of my layover and take the train into the city to explore. But before I did anything I got myself a nice big pretzel and that hit the spot after my long flight. In Frankfurt I found some beautiful churches, nice parks and some pretty incredible architecture. Unfortunately I didn't have much time to explore more, but nonetheless...
