We all travel in different ways: Some of us bring along our spouses, while others enjoy traveling on their own. Some journey with their families, and some take on the world with their girlfriends. No matter who we explore the world with, we all encounter unique experiences wherever we go. So as we celebrate the holiday season—and prepare for the start of a New Year—I thought it would be a perfect time to look back on some of my favorite stories submitted by our travelers.
From the Sahara to the Himalayas, read about the travel adventures of Charlotte and Harry Treworgy of Orono, Maine—who have joined us for 42 Grand Circle and OAT trips.
Journey with Patricia Gibbs—a 10-time traveler from Oro Valley, Arizona—as she pays a visit to her Scottish mother’s beloved hometown on our England, Scotland & Wales vacation.
It’s a family affair for Alice Banta—a 4-time traveler from Bend, Oregon—whenever she’s ready to plan her next trip. Read why Alice and her daughters simply can’t get enough of the River Cruising experience.
For identical twin sisters Joyce Apitz and Barbara Sales, taking a River Cruise along The Great Rivers of Europe began almost ten years of travel together. Read about some of the favorite moments they've shared.
Now that her children are grown, Therese Cunniff—a 12-time traveler from Weymouth, Massachusetts —decided that it’s her time. Read about her holiday vacation to Spain and Portugal.
Lots of laughs are always on the itinerary for Grand Circle’s own “Ya Ya” sisterhood—a group of girlfriends who explore the world together. Read some of their favorite travel experiences.
