Welcome to the middle of the year! Happy Canada Day (July 1), Happy July 4th and happy peace treaty in Colombia
Sadly, we do not feel moved to congratulate the UK on its divisive BREXIT vote. Perhaps we will be celebrating a United Ireland or congratulating Scotland on its independence in the near future.
So far 2016 has been a very busy year. I have already been to 13 countries and numerous other jurisdictions. While still travelling, I will spend much of the summer in the Rockies, before looking further south later in the year.
Although much of the Twomey Travel adventure and website are focused upon my travels and thoughts, we are a growing team with partnerships and many ideas. We have also added a Real Time News
section on the website with short, current travel and comments.
We continue to work closely with several groups and companies. For years now we have had the honour of working with the Jamboree Travelers from Oklahoma and Texas. Many of these travellers are now personal friends and I was thrilled to have several of them join me in Ireland and Scotland in April.
When you open this newsletter, Finn and I will be in Oregon with our Jamboree friends :)
I continue to have a long and extremely warm relationship with the All Leisure Group (Travelsphere, Just You, etc) out of the UK. They actually put me in their North America brochure (haha) and are using some of my blogs for promotion.
I believe most of the tours I am leading with them through 2016 are full, however there is still space in Central America
If you are considering this trip, it may be the last Central America trip I lead for some time, so please come join me Nov. 15 in Panama City.
Also - come join me on a Winter-Rockies trip this winter!
Six of us have already booked out flights into La Paz, Bolivia for Nov 1 (to Nov 13) this year with a few more booking. I need the group to reach 10 + myself. Bolivia is a high-altitude destination and very poor, but among the most interesting places in the world. I will be finalizing the details very soon and would love for you to join us. This is an â€˜at costâ€™ tour and while it requires adventurous travellers, the standards are surprisingly high. Please contact me
Along with All Leisure, I have been doing a great deal of work with this company and ran my Ireland tour through them. Earlier this year I had the thrill of taking Americans to Cuba
. Both groups were fantastically enjoyable people and watching that island change has been fascinating.
While we are working on many tours (to be announced) we have refused advertising on the twomeytravel.com
site. This independence is fun, ethical and effective. We know not everyone agrees with all our positions, yet thoroughly enjoy the conversation and the community that is developing.
Please write anytime and let us offer a warm and genuine thank you.
