Although we are still technically in winter, it is a good time to start thinking ahead and making summer/early fall vacation plans. Here in the office, we decided to see what suggestions came to mind when thinking of great trips during the summer and early fall to recommend to others. Since every client’s travel needs vary, we covered families, couples, and the solo traveler. Perhaps there is an adventure you haven’t experienced yet that would make this a summer to remember.
Family: Scotland – castles, Loch Ness, and plenty of other adventurous activities for active families.
Couple: Peru – hiking the Inca trail and visiting Machu Picchu.
Solo Traveler: Croatia – gorgeous landscape and beaches, incredibly friendly people, and delicious seafood. (I’d go back on my own in a heartbeat!)
Family: Get out and explore our wonderful province of BC.
Couple or Solo Traveler: Start a language course for that trip you are planning for next year.
Family: Road trip through BC or somewhere else in North America.
Couple: Sandals resort luxury included vacation for two people in love.
