Greetings from Bergen, Norway!

I'm here to do some reconnaissance and to meet the owners of a new Norwegian coastal cruise ship company before heading off to Ireland for our next Wheel & Anchor trip, followed shortly thereafter by hosting another group on our Scandinavia & the Baltics program.

Why Tuscany? Thoughts one of Italy’s most iconic regions

Tuscany has cultural, artistic and historical opulence in a region which defines taste like no other.

Tuscany is among Italy’s most stunning, and captivating places to visit; from art to wine to architecture. The undeniable birthplace and home to the Renaissance, Tuscany is the kind of place that is teases the imagination with dreams of life in your own Tuscan villa.

Greetings from Toronto!

Well, things are heating up here in Toronto as Spring fully graces us with her presence, and they are heating up at Wheel & Anchor as we are about to release a bunch of new programs!

We've got trips in the pipeline and trips on the go, travellers at home and travellers abroad.

An Update on Our Vaccine Policy

Greetings from Toronto!

I'm back on home soil for a few short weeks to sort out a few things to keep everything moving forward for our future programs, and to attempt to get caught up on member communications.

While reviewing our New Member Questionnaire, I came across several questions regarding vaccines and travelling with Wheel & Anchor.

Cork Or Plastic? The Science Of Stopping Your Wine

Cork Or Plastic? The Science Of Stopping Your Wine

Sometimes it really is the little things. It shouldn’t matter so much - but what would opening a bottle of wine be without that first “pop!” as the cork comes out, both comical & sophisticated, and always immensely satisfying?

It’s a problem wine-makers have been wrestling with for decades, ever since the arrival of cork alternatives.

Greetings from Trafalgar Square, London!

I'm back on the go again, from the slopes of Mount Etna just a few days ago, to here in London for a brief stop en route back to Toronto for a few weeks.

The last few months of relative stability on our LiveAway programs were absolutely wonderful, but now it's time to make some moves to keep things moving for Wheel & Anchor.

Our Next Iconic Train Trip

Ciao from Ortigia, Sicily!

First off, apologies for the delay in getting you this newsletter; we had an important software update with our email software over the weekend and we weren't able to get this out until today.

We wrapped up our Tuscany LiveAway last week and now I am in Sicily doing some reconnaissance for the Sicily LiveAway we are putting together for 2023. It's challenging to get to all these places to do on-the-ground inspections and such, but it's very important to me as it allows us to ensure the Wheel & Anchor standard of experience across all of our trips.
