What Makes Us Different 

friendships, flexibility and Goodwill in Cuba 2020

are the foundation of our journeys. Small group travel provides us flexibility to see places in Cuba and Guatemala. We get to interact with people that the common tourist will never experience. You are going to travel just like Sherrlyn might on a magazine assignment. You will have fantastic stories to return home with, magnificent images, and life changing experiences. Our leaders are accomplished experts in photography, travel, environmental and humanitarian work. Most of us have lived a majority part of our life on different continents.

We are travelers not tourists

We engage with people, spread goodwill, incorporate learning experiences and meaningful activities that leave a positive impact on the country and people we visit." - Sherrlyn Borkgren

We are so happy and excited that, Cuban expert and author, Hal Klepak will be visiting us in Cuba for a remarkable Cuban conversation. Cuban Journalist, Elaine Diaz will also be our guest and we’ll learn what it’s like to be a journalist in Cuba.
Remarkable places and people are often bypassed in order to stay on agendas when in a larger group. We travel as we would for an assignment whether for National Geographic Magazine or Save-the-Children.
This may include stopping off schedule to talk to an interesting person,  photograph the spectacular sunset, follow the aroma that leads to a special cafe, stay up late or get up extra early because something extraordinary is developing. Small is powerful. 

We limit our travel group to eight people. While based on photography and goodwill we invite all kinds of artists, writers, bird watchers and your partner to partake. Variety kindles excellence. 

GUATEMALA TRAVEL 2O2O We are invited to eat a homemade meal at the home of a pleasant Guatemalan family. We chose this family because of their struggle to keep their teenage children in school. Buying lunch from them aids them in their efforts for educationg their children and more. When we travel to amazing Lake Atitlan we'll stay at a small comfortable Mayan hotel on the lake that also enables the native Mayan people. We are in Guatemala just before the crazy Easter rush but we are in Antigua in time to catch some of the pre-Easter Guatemala festivals and merriment. It’s an exciting time to be in Guatemala.
We avoid the corporate for real and personable adventures. You'll have ample time to explore and photograph on your own, join an optional excursions like canoeing, bird-watching or even climb a volcano.  We usually eat dinner and breakfast together. You can share your photos and stories after lunch but we are flexible about the timing due to the many things that are happening around us, we don't want to miss anything. 
We encourage friendship, sharing and cooperating.  We'd love to have you come with us.
