Switzerland Scenery

By Megan Ball 

Switzerland is one of those special places where I just don’t know enough words to properly describe how beautiful and wonderful a country it is. On my last trip to Switzerland I was brought to tears at the beauty of the Verzasca Valley and actually said out loud “I don’t understand how this place is even real” whilst taking in the view from atop Mt. Stanserhorn in the Lake Lucerne region. The scenery is stunning, the air is clean, the food is delicious – I could go on and on, and these words don’t even do the country justice to how truly magnificent a destination it really is. Switzerland is a great choice for independent travelers due to its efficient and easy-to-use public transportation system, as well as its great diversity. In one country you can areas that are distinctly different from one another in their language, scenery, architecture, and food. I am so excited to give you a sneak peek at three new Regional Highlights we’ll be offering in 2018 that highlight the diversity of Switzerland.

Rioja, More than Just Wine

By Gina Bang 

A few hours north of Madrid, you’ll find stretches of rolling hills topped with vineyards creating picturesque landscapes. However, wine production in Spain is a serious business and a deep passion for many of the people I encountered. Some wine makers explained that they have Tempranillo running in their veins like their forefathers. Others explained that they were in the business world, but always had the vineyards calling their names. Younger generations were most excited about wine tourism and sharing their piece of the world with visitors both domestically and internationally.

Piedmont or Piemonte?

By Mike Dodd 

The Italians say pee-ay-MON-tay. In either case, it’s worth a trip. The Piemonte is another overlooked region by US travelers, joining the growing list of other underrated areas like Donegal, Ireland, Galicia in Spain, Brittany in France, Bremen in Germany, and Cornwall in England.

In any event, it’s a shame that more Americans have not found their way here, considering its’ short driving distance from Milan, and it’s major city Turin, offers excellent air connections.
