South America. Chile, Argentina, the Strait of Magellan, Passing Cape Horn…These have all been part of my bucket list. And now you can even join me on the amazing adventure.
Scheduled for January 19, of 2013 I will be hosting a cruise aboard the amazing Seabourne Sojourn.
Last year we travelled on the Silverseas Silver Wind, our first experience with a small cruise line which offered truly all inclusive service. No charge for alcohol and other beverages, no gratuities, and great service in venues that were not cavernous dining rooms or lounges.
It is the same kind of service we know we will have aboard the Sojourn, rated by Conde Nast as the best cruise line in the world.
We will spend a day or two in Santiago before heading off to Valparaiso, itself a World Heritage Site, to begin the adventure.
Likewise at the end of the cruise we will stay a day or two in Buenos Aires.
The following is our actual schedule. Look it over and see if you would like to join us. You can get more information by email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org or call Renaissance Travel at toll free (800) 859-6354
I can tell you for certain you will have fun on this trip. My wife and I love people and we enjoy laughter and usually end up becoming quite close to the people who travel with us.
You can of course not emerse yourself with our small group and just enjoy the Journey if you like.
Here is the itinerary.
