1 country \ 11 days \ from US$1595 per person

New Zealand's the land of stunning natural beauty, action-packed activities & laid back culture. Kick off this trip in the land of "The Lord of the Rings", Wellington. Take in a dinner sunset cruise on Lake Taupo and brave the Rock'n Ropes course. In Rotorua try the 'Zorb' or skyline gondola & end the day relaxing in a Polynesian thermal pool. Black water raft the underground caves of Waitomo & in the Bay of Islands go sand dune surfing. Finally, the good times must come to an end in the country's biggest city, Auckland.

Outback Adventure (Start Alice Springs)

1 country \ 12 days \ from US$1769 per person

Travel the land 'Down Under'. Sleep under the stars in a bush camp, take a hot air balloon ride, then grab a cold beer with all your new friends at one of the oldest Territory pubs. Gorgeous gorges & national parks leave you breathless as you get to know the backyard of Australia, plus Darwin offers the draw of the big city with shopping & nightlife not to be missed.

I was grateful for packing dresses- light, airy, comfortable, can dress up or down. I used a long cotton scarf to keep the sun off my neck, to dip in fountains to cool down, and for an accessory. Also, a few pairs of comfortable walking shoes are all the shoes necessary- cobblestones, uneven pavement, and long days of walking can do a number on you. We brought our own Euros so that we only had to use a bank in an emergency. That way, we weren't taking away from the trip to do basic errands. We did all of the extra excursions with the group because we never went to Europe before and we weren't sorry. If you want to go to the prestigious museums in Florence, consider booking before you leave!! The line for the David was over an hour and a half. Our guide had no problem getting us into the Uffizi though. And because we attempted to speak the languages, at least manners, people were very nice and helpful.
