The next stage of her rehab will be at a 'wellness' hotel in Kanton Aargau. She will spend 2-3 weeks there in various sessions aimed at getting her back to normal (that may be an oxymoron when speaking of Berit). Anyway, two interesting things about this: one, the… Continue

Here is Berit with Albert on day two after a total hip replacement. She looks better than she has in several weeks because the pain is gone.
I arrived yesterday in Vienna after an easy train ride from Werfen to Salzburg to Vienna. It was sad to say goodbye to the mountains, but the wonders of city await!
Claudia held the orientation yesterday afternoon, since the other Untourists who arrived yesterday were coming from Prague and so weren't jetlagged. There's so much to do here, that I think I'll need to set up an hour-by-hour schedule to make sure I do everything that I'd like to.
I'd like to start a little mini-series of blog posts about our the Untours staff people you meet when you are on site in European countries. . Since I've recently returned from two weeks in Switzerland I begin by musing about our one full-time European colleague. We have about 55 part-time (full time equivalent 25) staff in Europe.
When I took the original six Untour guinea pigs to Meiringen, Switzerland in September, 1975, I stayed…Continue

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?". I now feel that I have a very good answer- "I seek difference". All of the staff at Idyll and our recent tour leader in China and Tibet have…Continue
Gabe and I are enjoying day seven of our Andalusia untour. We are feeling very much at home at our cortijo, "la Cruz Blanca", just outside of the town of Carcabuey. The cortijo is very rural, surrounded by mountains and olive groves. It is very quiet and peaceful - the perfect place to relax after a day of hiking or sightseeing. We love sitting on the patio with a glass of¨"tinto de verano" (red wine with orange Fanta) just about any time of day! There is a jasmine vine nearby that sends out…Continue
