The time has come to announce the next set of tours that I’ll be offering through my Wandering Earl Tours project.
For those who may not be aware of what this project is all about, at the end of 2012, I started offering small group tours to some of my favorite countries/regions around the world, tours that I organize and lead myself. And so far, things are going quite well!
The goal is to offer you something unique, the kind of laid-back, local trip that a major tour company can’t offer. I like to think of it as “independent travel with the support of a small group”, where we experience the destinations, not from behind a tour bus window, but by actually wandering through the streets and lanes, by eating local food from local eateries, by using local transportation and of course, by meeting as many people along the way as possible.
So far, I’ve run two tours to India and one each to Mexico, Romania & Moldova and Istanbul. My third tour to India is coming up in March (which has sold out).
And now, announcement time….here is the next set of trips for 2014 that I’ll be offering:
Wander Across IRAQI KURDISTAN
Dates: May 4th – 13th
Overview: I mentioned this tour to the semi-autonomous, and safe, region of northern Iraq, a few months ago and it quickly sold out, but two people just had to cancel, leaving 2 spots available. So, if you’re interested in visiting a very off-the-beaten-path destination that will absolutely surprise you every step of the way, this might be the trip for you!
Wander Across MEXICO (YUCATAN)
Dates: June 4th – 10th
Overview: This trip is short and sweet…a one week adventure around the culturally fascinating Yucatan Peninsula, with a couple of days on Mexico’s beautiful Caribbean coast as well. History, check. Culture, check. Excellent food, check. Adventure, check. Good times? Absolutely!
Wander Across SOUTHEAST ASIA
Dates: August 15th – 29th
Overview: Many people have asked me to organize a tour to Southeast Asia, so here it is… This trip will take us through Thailand and Cambodia, two destinations loved by travelers from all over the world, visiting everything from vibrant cities to national parks to quiet villages to historical sights, mountains, markets, temples and more!
