Cinque Terre's Alluring Charm-
Cinque Terre is a gorgeous tiny village. The colorful collection of houses appear to be barely hanging on to rocky slopes rising from the sea against a backdrop of emerald-green lush hillsides. You will feel as if you have stumbled upon a quiet, secret coastal hideaway. It appears to be located far from the bustle of the modern world, where life along the Ligurian Sea ambles along much as it did a century ago. It’s as if time stood still in this beautiful village.
This incredible stretch of the Italian Riviera is among the most rugged, rocky shores in the world. Nevertheless, the quaint terraced hamlets emerged along the coast, which is only accessible by boat, train or foot. Very much isolated from the larger world all around it, their culture, architecture, and serene, peaceful atmosphere is unmatched anywhere else.
The unforgiving terrain has prevented any construction of roads. So we can thank geography for preserving this breathtaking place.
The result is a travel experience that's like none other. Imagine the lure of the steep, narrow building threading their way past beautiful, multi-colored fishermen’s houses, the tranquil boat-filled marinas, the astounding seascape, and an old-world charm that you simply cannot put into words. Imagine the clean fresh air and hushed, car-free lanes that will allow you to appreciate Cinque Terre in a soothing, unrushed fashion.
We trust you’ll find the entire experience simply amazing during our Italy Tour that will be an unforgettable small group adventure. Join us!
The Cure for Jet Lag-
Here’s an easy, surefire tip to cure jet lag. Say goodbye to those wasted 3 days of feeling like crap when arriving in a new time zone. All you need to do is book your flight for one that arrives late at night whenever possible (so like 9:00pm or later).
No matter what time you happened to book your flight, when you get off a long flight, you're going to feel absolutely drained, even if you’ve had a decent nap on the flight. If you arrive early in the morning, you'll have to force yourself to stay awake all day.
Arriving late means that you can collect your bags, get to your hotel and get to bed right away. Any time we've arrived late, we've had ZERO jet lag. Give it a try and then let us know how you feel!

WHAT INSPIRES YOU TO TRAVEL?
By Jen Campbell of Escape Destinations Travel
So what inspires you to travel? Is it the thrill of going someplace new and exciting? Is it the unknown that makes you want to check out a new place? For me, it’s the idea of seeing new cultures, vising new lands, being exposed to new surroundings, great and varied people, and simply being out of my comfort zone. I love being able to “unplug” leave the social media and gadgets behind, and be lost in a new country. See how the other side lives, open up my mind to new ideas and new adventures!
Whatever it is for you, I encourage you to get out there and make new memories in a foreign land, you won’t be disappointed you did!
“Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime.” – Mark Twain
