Sandi Carter - (My Bucket List Adventures) In 1997 I went on safari in Tanzania and stayed for 7 years doing volunteer work. Soon after returning, I became extremely "homesick", as I left part of my heart and soul in Tanzania.
I missed the warmth of the people, the vastness of the Serengeti and the magnificent animals roaming free in their own natural habitat, so began taking small groups on safari. If an African safari is on your bucket list, contact me. I speak the language, know the culture and have hand picked my English speaking guides, who I have known for many years. My love for different cultures has also also taken me to Australia, Ireland, Turkey, Greece and many countries in Europe. There is a big world out there waiting to be explored and I would love to help you plan your next adventure. I specialize in small groups but also do individual travel arrangements. I arrange group travel adventures for people looking to see the world in a safe and inviting atmosphere. Perfect for solo travelers who don't want to travel alone but also don't want to be a part of a large group.

Tom & Karla Truxton (Sunrises Afar) We have been married for nearly 30 years together even longer and in that time one thing that we have learned is that you have to take a vacation, it's not a luxury, it's a necessity. We learned to love travel by forcing ourselves to take vacations and found we enjoyed helping others plan their escapes from reality. We are avid cruise and Disney fans and we are committed to use our knowledge to make your vacation a time to remember. We are grandparents raising grandchildren, so we understand the challenges that seniors taking vacations with the younger set can encounter. Also if you live in a lifestyle that is a little bit of an alternative from the rest of everybody else then we understand and can help you plan for your vacations too. We do have family in the LGBT community as well, we love to help everyone we can. You can contact Tom & Karla at 503.928.4660/direct, 503.655.4850/main office or email them at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
