Greetings from Thailand!
Although we're just over halfway through 2021, I have received a great many questions from the community about our 2023 lineup of programs. Namely this is due to trips being rescheduled trips from 2020 or 2021, something we've spent lots of time doing this as well over the past year or so.
While it may seem a ways away, in many ways it isn't, so it's time for a first peek over the horizon at things to come...
Usually every year around December / January we put out our 'Trip Inspiration Survey', where we ask the community for input about upcoming trips and destinations that interest you.
We've decided that we should do this twice a year rather than just once, particularly as there remains a lot of uncertainty and chaos in the pandemic (and eventually post-pandemic) era. With so many things in flux, a little more flexibility is warranted, and revisiting the future outlook for trips will hopefully help us to stay ahead of the curve.
So on that note, we'll be launching the next edition of our Trip Inspiration questionnaire in a few weeks' time. Some of the ideas I'll be presenting include a trip along a portion of the Brahmaputra River in India, followed by an adventure into Bhutan; more LiveAway programs, including one to Bali and another to Corsica and Sardinia, two charming regions that generally get overlooked by visitors to Italy.
I'm also quite excited to plan a small ship cruise and overland program in Oman, one of the countries that is near the top of my list, as well as put a trip together to visit the 'Stans' via Orient Silk Road Express that we spoke about in our Incredible Train Journeys webinar series last year.
I'm just bursting at the seams with ideas and can't wait to share them with you, but I'd also like to ask you for yours! As I always say, your participation and your input are very important to me, the team, and the community - we are a member-driven organization and odds are good that if there's a place you've been dreaming about visiting, there are others of like mind around here 🙂
So, if there's a place that you'd like to get to in 2023, please let me know by replying to this email, and we'll discuss it along with our other ideas when we kick off the next Trip Inspiration edition in a few weeks.
Very quickly returning to the present - we've got a couple of webinars coming up that I'm excited to present to you that you can find in your newsletter, and we've just released the itinerary for our new & improved Cyprus program, now with 2 x 2 week stays instead of one month in one place.
Stay safe & stay inspired...more good things on the way.
