Bhutan Yoga Tour for Women Announced

by Beth Whitman (May 12th, 2015)

I first went to Bhutan in 2008. AND I first led a tour when I went to Bhutan in 2008. It seems crazy now, diving into a destination and (what I didn’t know at the time) diving into a what would become a new business all because of that trip. But that tour hooked me […]

Papua New Guinea Mt. Hagen 2016 Tour Announced

by Beth Whitman (March 6th, 2015)

If you’ve spent time with me or been following this blog for awhile, you likely know how enamored I am with Papua New Guinea. I don’t remember an exact moment, but my love affair with PNG likely started with the cover of a National Geographic magazine. My parents were subscribers and I’m sure I was […]

Trekking: What the Nepalese could learn from the Bhutanese

by Beth Whitman (October 23rd, 2014)

You’ve undoubtedly heard about the tragedy on the Annapurna Circuit in Nepal last week where 40+ people died when heavy snow and blizzard conditions unexpectedly hit during prime trekking season. While it’s believed the bodies of all foreigners have been located, local porters and guides are reportedly still missing. Having just returned from the 25-day […]

Papua New Guinea-bound

by Beth Whitman (August 8th, 2014)

As I write this, I’m literally sitting at the airport getting ready to leave for Papua New Guinea to lead one of our WanderTours to the Mt. Hagen SingSing. PNG is one of my very favorite destinations because it is so crazy diverse. There are approximately 850 tribes in the country. The jungle terrain is […]

by Beth Whitman (July 25th, 2014)

Visiting Seattle? Having just had our culinary tour in my wonderful city, I thought I’d share some of the best dining spots in the city so you can live vicariously through our taste buds. Probably the highlight of our tour this year was brunch at the Whale Wins. This award winning restaurant in the Fremont […]

Going to New Orleans? Here’s Where to Eat

by Beth Whitman (June 13th, 2014)

I don’t even know where to start when I think about all the food I consumed during our four-day culinary tour to New Orleans. On the one hand, four days is not enough because there’s so much to sample. But on the other hand, four days is almost too much when you consider all the […]

Bhutan. Haven’t Been? Allow Me to Entice You…

by Beth Whitman (February 21st, 2014)

It’s kinda hard to go to the Land of Gross National Happiness and not have a good time. The people are kind, humorous, generous and steeped in ancient traditions and culture. Interestingly enough, there are usually lots of tears, too, (good ones, of course) because there’s something about the purity of Bhutan that makes one […]

Book a 2014 Bhutan Tour ~ Save 5%

by Beth Whitman (January 17th, 2014)

I admit it. The first time someone mentioned Bhutan to me, I had to Google it. I had no idea where it was located. Shortly thereafter, I was leading a tour to the Kingdom. Most people to whom I mention Bhutan, have the same puzzled look that I once had. But with visits from Oprah, […]
