Iceland on Horseback

Not for the faint hearted ( or faint seated for that matter), seeing the interior of Iceland on horseback is a marvelous adventure that challenges body and spirit.

Riding Horseback in Greece

A wonderful way to explore the Pelion Penninsula is on horseback. You go into the deep forests, emerge in high platos where goats graze, descend to the white sand beaches, stay in little villages and enjoy the local taverna at night, and finally, swim with your horse in the sea!

Minoan Art on Crete

Crete is a marvelous Island with very friendly people, gorgeous beaches, great food and the most amazing evidence of the Minoan culture.

I believe this to be the most interesting place I've ever been. If you love art, archeology, architecture, people, the ocean, mountains, horseback riding, water sports, hiking, camping, nightlife, Crete has it all.

Yes, it IS easy to drive here and you don't need to speak Greek, German or anything else for that matter! The people are wonderful.


As part of a combined country trip, Portugal stands out as "unspoiled" Europe. Until you've seen Portugal in spring, you can't imagine: cork orchards with their twisted tree trunks forming sculptures in the bright sunlite. The filtering light makes the light green foliage underneath just glisten. Along the roads are native white calla lillies.

and this is just the start!

Italy by Auto

A trip to southern Italy was quite the experience! A friend and I went there, were constantly lost, but stumbled upon the greatest ruins and museums far from the usual tourist places.

We had a series of adventures that make Chevy Chase's "European Vacation" look like an AARP cruise!
