EXTENDED TRIPS AND ADVENTURES


.

Australia and Barrier Reef to Sydney, Nature and Wildlife.  September 11 - 24, 2017. GoAhead Tours.   I plan to extend my trip for an additional week in Sydney.  Experience the allure of the land Down Under when you snorkel the Great Barrier Reef, gaze at Ayers Rock and explore the Sydney Opera House. But these iconic adventures are only the beginning. From multicultural Melbourne to the vast Outback, Australia is full of surprises for you to discover and savor.   Three of us are extending our stay in Melbourne by three days...and at the end of the trip, we will extend for a full week.

November 4 - 12 (16 with extension) GoAhead Tours - The Wonders of Ancient Israel....with Jordan Extension.  For an ancient spiritual epicenter, Israel still feels surprisingly contemporary and fresh. Uncover cosmopolitan Tel Aviv’s laid-back vibe and hip Haifa’s Bauhaus style. Then, descend into the holy lands that set the foundations for many faiths—including Jerusalem, one of the oldest cities in the world.   A four day extension to Jordan is planned.  A hightlight will be time spent in Petra. There are two spaces open.
