INNOCENTS ABROAD — Back in 1869, Mark Twain published a huge bestselling book about his travels around the Mediterranean. Twain provides an incredible glimpse into life and culture at that time. A great read. Here are some self-captioned images from a first edition copy I own.

READY FOR AN ADVENTURE? Plan on being a part of our upcoming epic cruise/tour this November, visiting many of the same regions Twain visited over 150 years ago: Egypt, Israel, Rhodes, Cyprus, Ephesus, Greece and more —

“Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry and narrow-mindedness and many of our people need it sorely on those accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime." -- Mark Twain, 1869
