Mark Twain once remarked:
Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sail.
Explore. Dream. Discover.
Travels and touring have been my heart and soul of exploring new culture; discovering new people and places; raising my vision beyond the confines of backyard and front porch. I’m ever captured Twain’s thought: “Explore. Dream. Discover.”
I’ve have enjoyed hosting a dozen tours for groups of friends and parishioners over the past two decades I began with a tour to experience the Oberammergau Passion Play, and to Switzerland and Austria in 2000; followed by a trip to Churches of the Revelation in Turkey and Greece; the highlights of Scotland and England in 2003; embarking on a Russian river Cruise; on the Pilgrimage of St. James to Santiago de Compostela, in Spain; on a Cruise-Tour to Alaska in 2006; a trip to China shortly after moving to Scranton in 2005; a 2010 return to the Passion Play. I’ve taken groups on exciting cruise tours of the Mediterranean; the Baltics and the Caribbean in recent years. I’ve enjoyed a tour of Australia and New Zealand; and I’ve only recently returned from a trip of my own to Peru. These adventures in travel have proven to be a phenomenal means of both seeing amazing sights, but also strengthening relationships with those who travel together.
I invite you to consider this trip to experience the majesty of the Passion Play in Oberammergau – while we explore the “Splendors of Eastern Imperial Cities” of Prague, Budapest and Vienna. Specific details for this adventure in travel are now available. Don’t hesitate to call or contact me with questions and for additional information.
Let us ‘explore and discover’ together.
