Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, the 2020 culinary tour of Israel had to be cancelled. We are rescheduling for April 28 – May 6, 2021. More information will be out soon.
Have you traveled to Israel before and now want to return and see it from a different perspective? Have we got the tour for you!! Israel is a true melting pot of immigrants from around the world who brought with them their cultures and cuisines. They have melded together their culinary traditions to create a cuisine that is uniquely Israeli!
Join us in May 2020 on this gastronomic adventure co-hosted by Robin Katzman and your TLC Travel Advisor, Lynn Fenster. For highlights, complete itinerary, and other details check out Discovering Israeli Cuisine. We are limited to no more than 30 participants. A $500 deposit is required to secure your spot on the tour. Get a 20% discount off of the deposit if you pay it by September 1, 2019!
As you get ready to embark on this year’s road trip, here’s a quick list of smartphone apps that can help you get organized, find great deals, and save you money along the way.
Your children are old enough that they are doing their own thing on school breaks and no longer willing to travel with the family or they are already out of the house. Now is the time for you to start taking some of the trips of your dreams. If you have the time and the means, consider these five types of trips:
The Bucket List Trip If you are like me, you have a long list of places you want to visit. Now is the time to start checking them off your travel list. If you have always wanted to go to Australia for two weeks, do it now. If you have always wanted to go to Italy, what are you waiting for?
The Group Trip The more socially active you are, the more healthfully you will age. If you have already retired, group trips with friends or like-minded strangers are ideal. You may even meet travel companions for your next trip! Group trips can include things like escorted land tours, themed river cruises, and adventure travel.
Almost all travelers have a Nightmare Luggage story. You spent a lot of money on a fancy brand-name bag that broke on the first leg of the trip. Or you skimped on the spending and got exactly what you paid for. Or the bag that you thought would be comfortable and versatile turned out to be neither.
Considering a visit to the Grand Canyon? A visit there can and should be tied in with a visit to other parts of the western United States especially if you are planning a fly/drive travel experience. Consider some of these options in planning your vacation.
Southern Utah’s Desert Scenery. Some of the best desert scenery in the world, this option includes all five of Utah’s national parks (Arches, Canyonlands, Zion, Bryce Canyon, and Capitol Reef) plus the Grand Canyon’s South Rim. Consider taking the time to stop also at Dead Horse Point State Park, Lake Powell, and/or the Hoover Dam. Back in the mid-1990s, I was fortunate enough to take a 12-day camping trip where I spent time at four of the five national parks, Dead Horse Point State Park, and Lake Powell. While I probably will never get to experience the fun of tent camping again I do look forward to one day sharing with Mark the beauty of southern Utah and the expansive views of the Grand Canyon.
