I went to an Insight presentation on Tuesday night in at Warrnambool where they presented next year’s tours. I’ve done a tour with them through Spain and last year from Prague to Warsaw via Vienna, Budapest and Krakow, and they were absolutely top notch.
The guy I always travel with has got a full year travel-wise next year, so it had to be something reasonably late in the year. He’s got his daughter’s wedding in Thailand in April, then an old crony invited him on a boat trip along the Canal du Midi in June, and since Essendon will surely be playing Melbourne in the grand final next year, we’ve settled on a 14-day tour of Southern Italy and Sicily starting Oct 5 or Oct 12.
Probably then head to Switzerland for a bit of rail travel for a week or so. Wouldn’t mind dropping into the Cinque Terre for a few days on the way, but the tour finishes in Sicily. Wouldn’t have minded training it from Rome up to Cinque Terre, but it might be awkward. One or t’other, I suppose.
