Profile Information

What is your favorite place in Europe so far?
Switzerland
Where would you most like to go next?
China and Tibet (sort of a sneaky answer because we are planning to go there in September 2007).
Tell us about one of your favorite places to stay on an Untour. Do you have a favorite host? Apartment? Village?
The Zumsteins in Lungern. We have visited them on other Swiss Untours because they were very special. The apartment had a balcony overlooking the train station and lake. We loved having coffee and pasteries in the morning and coffee and chocolate in the evening on that balcony. The sunsets were beautiful!
Do you have any special interests or hobbies that you follow when you travel?
Hiking

"If you travel, it must be to seek difference."

My wife and I have just returned from a trip to China and Tibet. After 18 Untours it was quite unique to be on a tour. The title of this blog is a quote from a book titled Travelers' Tales China True Stories. When we have returned from all of the untours and the recent trip it is common to have friends ask, "Why do you go to these far away places?".

countries, I prefer the Untour experience and returning to
those places where familiar places and old friends provide
much comfort.
