Traveling is something many of us dream about

I’ve been exploring and leading trips for over 45 years — climbing & trekking in the Alps, Andes, North American mountain ranges and the Himalaya. History and travel are complementary. Travel provides vivid experiences of historical sites while history increases our understanding of our travels. When we study history, it teaches us about the people who have lived in the past and how their lives were. It also shows us how different civilizations interacted with each other in order to progress as human beings.

Both economics and time constrain many. It’s never too early to start planning your future vacations or even longer-term travel around the world. Set your sights high and literally expand your horizons.
