CTD's 2016 Tour in Irish American News

Travel Supp CoverCountry Travel DISCOVERIES' 2016 tour, Ireland: A Celtic Jaunt, was recently featured in the Irish American News annual special travel issue.

Entitled "Experience Ireland Stress-Free (When Experts Do All the Work)," the full-page article by Rebecca Steimle addresses the would-be traveler who yearns to finally take that trip to the Emerald Isle, but is daunted upon finding that "planning the whole trip yourself, your to-do list may be growing longer than your packing list."

The travel issue appeared as a special insert this February in the Irish American News, which serves Irish American communities through local editions in both Illinois and Ohio.

 

CTD's Colorado Vintage Rail Tour Reviewed

The staff at Country Travel DISCOVERIES was pleased to receive a Google notice alerting us to a wonderfully illustrated review of our longstanding Colorado's Vintage Railways tour, posted by John Burlingham, Senior Editor, on Country Magazine's Good Neighbors blog.

"I was awestruck," Burlingham writes, "by the gorgeous view and the impossibly tiny rock ledge ahead that was expected to support vintage passenger cars, a puffing iron horse—and us, of course. This trip into the interior of southwestern Colorado’s Rocky Mountains was getting better with every train ride."

We can't agree more!

Thanks to the crew at Country Magazine for the shout! You can read the full review and see the great photographs here.

So, in today’s fast paced travel world—how do we make those skies a bit friendlier?

After some 30 years in the travel industry, first as Managing Director of World Wide Country Tours and then as President of Country Travel DISCOVERIES, I’ve certainly racked up my share of air miles. Following are some tips that can make your flying experience a bit more friendly...
