  Dear Traveler,

Ahhh... August. As the easygoing days of summer drift by, it's easy to imagine they'll last forever. Don't let the cold months of fall and winter sneak up on you! Now's the perfect time to lock in your plans for an exotic escape with other active solo travelers. Once the gray skies and cool temps set in, you'll be glad you've got a sunny getaway on your calendar.

Imagine biking amid papaya and teak groves in Thailand—then climbing aboard an elephant for a trek through the jungle. Or snorkeling in the realm of parrot fish and giant clams in Bali. Or pedaling amid rain forests, Kona coffee plantations and beautiful beaches on Hawaii's Big Island. Or "tramping" in a forest of native tree ferns and sinuous vines in New Zealand. You still have time to make this happen because we have space for you!

With our unparalleled blend of exhilarating activities, inspiring scenery and rich cultural encounters (not to mention plenty of downtime for relaxing by the pool or on the beach), it's easy to turn your winter vacation dreams into reality.

Give our Trip Consultants a call at 800-462-2848; they're available to answer your questions 7 days a week from 7 am to 5 pm PST.

Hope to see you out there soon,
