Walking the ancient pilgrim path of the Camino de Santiago has attracted a myriad of nationalities for centuries.
Beyond the native Spanish, many languages are spoken on the way, but as discovered by Glenyce Johnson, Intrepid’s General Manager – Business Development, the conversation generally started with much in common.
From an early age I have curiously wanted to see different places on our planet. I read books about far away countries and dreamt about visiting them when I grew older.
I have travelled solo to many destinations, following my dreams to tour the world. Ten years ago, I remember having so much fun the last time I took a small group tour of Spain. Looking to try a small group adventure again, I checked out Intrepid Travel’s tours to Argentina and Chile.
Why did I select this type of tour? Partly to connect with like-minded travellers, but also to connect with locals whose country we have the privilege of visiting.
Do you have an interesting story to tell about a friendship that started on an Intrepid adventure? If so, we’d love to hear from you.
It’s fantastic to find out about like-minded travellers who have hooked up on our trips. Did you meet a great travel mate, was it the beginning of a lifelong friendship, or was it more than that?
It’s been a long and overwhelming day of sightseeing, so when that icy cold tap beer is pulled by the bartender we can understand why you’re suddenly overcome with emotion.
Is it the excitement of being in a new city, the thrill of finding a great local pub or simply relief that the man behind the bar understood what you wanted? It’s probably all that and more, so to mentally prepare you for the experience here are twelve of ‘The Feels’ you can expect to be faced with on an Urban Adventures Beer Tour…
Who better to ask about travelling to Iran than a local?
Reza Poorhoseini has been leading Intrepid trips in Iran since they first started in 2006. He’s passionate about his homeland and has a wealth of information about the region, so we asked him what should people expect to see and discover in his country?
In its strategic east-meets-west location, Istanbul has attracted migrants and travellers for centuries.
Within the Fener and Balat districts, where the population is mostly rural immigrants, is a fabulous organisation receiving support through The Intrepid Foundation, and turning around the lives of young people from disadvantaged backgrounds.
South America has long been a bucket-list destination for me and in just 4 days I’ll be heading there myself for the first time. It’s so close I can literally taste the Pisco Sour.
So what’s so exciting about South America anyway? Well, for anyone unfamiliar with this epic continent, here’s a round-up of some of the things I’m looking forward to most when I explore Peru. And if there’s some stuff that I definitely shouldn’t miss, make sure you let me know in the comments below.
You know that restaurant in your neighborhood that you always pass by, meaning to go there some other time?
Then when you finally do go, you realize it is the best! The best drinks, the most fun staff and delicious food. Soon you’re kicking yourself for passing by this gem for so long. Well, that’s exactly how I felt when I first went to Mexico!
