    My husband and I will be taking the England, Scotland & Wales trip on August 10, 2018. Can someone who has recently gone on this trip tell me if most of the men wear jackets for the welcome dinner and the farewell dinner. Thanks. Marie

    We haven't been on this tour recently but I believe recent posts offer varying opinions. It depends on the group and time of year. I think most will say at least 50% - 75% of the men will wear a jacket on the welcome and farewell dinners and any other special meals. Maybe 50% of those will also wear a tie. Depending on the weather ties and often jackets may be quickly shed- it was warm during our tour, so jackets and ties came off within the first few minutes. However, some say slacks and a nice shirt were the attire of choice during their tour. Joyce just got back so will likely weigh in here before too long.

  • Was any insect repellent besides Deet effective?

    I'm going on the July 19 Wild Alaska, I hear the mosquitos are really big and numerous. I hate to bring DEET, has anyone used the lemon/euculypsis ( sp? ) or any other repellent that was effective? Thank You

    DEET (in products such as OFF, REPEL, ULTRTHON, etc.) has been around since 1946 and available OTC since 1957, but is still the gold standard. But many folks have also had good results with products containing Picardin which some reports say is better. Both are recommended by the CDC, however Picardin is supposedly more odor-free and gentler to the skin, allowing it to breathe better. Here is a link to an NPR report.

Ever since I first saw pictures of Machu Picchu and heard about the mysterious ancient city I had a powerful urge to see it for myself. It took a while, but I finally made it, and the spectacular terraced mountaintop ruin was even more magnificent than the pictures.

When my younger sister decided to leave the east coast behind and attend Colorado State as her college of choice and now permanent home, I knew exciting doors were about to open for my family and me. We now had a reason to break away from the east coast and venture west for the first time.  During my first trip to the Mile-High City of Denver,...
