    Volunteer for an Adventure!

    $0.00

    If you want to experience a life-changing adventure, I highly recommend you combine travel with volunteerism! It’s one of the best things I’ve ever done!

It’s a great way to be completely immersed in a new culture, visit places you’ve never have been before, give yourself a new perspective on your life back at home, and have the added feel-good bonus of feeding your soul while helping those in need.

  15. Canadian Rockies by Horseback

    Canadian Rockies by Horseback

    $0.00

    Each summer some of my friends and I try to do an equestrian vacation.  In early 2016, one friend, who lives in Canada, discovered the web page for the Trail Riders of the Canadian Rockies (www.trailridevacations.com). After looking at this myself, we decided this would be our trip for 2016 and sent in our deposits. We were soon joined by 2 of my friends from Georgia and another friend from Ohio. Our trip would be in Waterton Lakes National Park in the Province of Alberta, Canada, the sister park to Glacier National Park in Montana. None of us had been to this park before.

    The Titanic Salvage Expedition: Part 1 Surviving the Trip

    $0.00

    Hurricane Matthew which recently devastated Haiti and hit the eastern US coast bears witness that hurricane season can bring disaster to the best of plans.  I am often asked to name my favorite expedition and my usual answer is “the next one”.  But it is hard to top a very unique experience of some years ago when I was the medical officer for the Titanic salvage expedition. This entailed a 4 week expedition in the North Atlantic during which the submersibles you have seen in the movies were deployed to search for artifacts.  Although very occasional high-priced tourist trips have visited the site, there have only been a couple of dives which retrieved artifacts.

  23. Rainbow Bridge and American Falls by night

    Heading Home from Canada: Where are the sheep?

    $0.00

    After our two night stay in Niagara Falls, Canada, it was finally time to head home.  The other adventures in the Niagara Falls area will appear later in the Guest Patrol, since they are not primarily related to pet travel. These will include the fireworks show on Sunday night, a visit to a large Buddhist temple and exploring the river down from the Falls, and the ride up to the Falls on the Maid of the Mist. Obviously Susie would not have enjoyed the fireworks display, nor would she appreciate the soaking we received near the Canadian Horseshoe Falls.  The pet friendliness of the Fallsview Hotel made it possible to make these short local side trips knowing that Susie was well cared for when I was gone whether for a meal or to see a site unsuited for pets.

  25. Evergreen Club North America

    Evergreen Club North America

    $0.00

    I think anyone that has been in business for over 30 years and is involved in travel deserves to be checked out. I ran across the Evergreen Club (for people over 50) and found it to be a bit unusual, so it caught my eye and I decided to speak to the owner. It turns out Linda's mother started the company 30 years ago and she is now the keeper of the flame.


    It's actually a take on the idea of a Bed and Breakfast, but it has a twist. This is a people to people set up in a person's spare guest room that also includes breakfast. I know – a bit quirky, but cool at the same time.
