Spotlight: Viking Homelands Ocean Cruise

When we were sailing with Viking Ocean Cruises a few weeks ago (article link) President and CEO Torstein Hagan shared with us that if folks want to explore the Baltic's, that they ought to do it aboard a Viking Ocean Cruise as the Baltic's are the homelands of Viking.

He went on to lay out a very compelling argument.

Closing Thoughts

"We travel not to escape life, but for life not to escape us." – Anonymous

I don't fully agree with this statement.  Sometimes, travel IS merely a chance to escape and rejuvenate.  Sometimes travel is to celebrate the milestones in our lives.  And, perhaps to this person's point, travel has a way of changing our lives as we visit other cultures, begin to understand their history, and spend time interacting with them.

Whether you want to escape your daily life, or desire a travel experience that might make you more fully alive, we hope that you've found a travel experience in this week's newsletter that will inspire you to get out there and explore something new.

Speaking of travel, many of us will be traveling over the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday.  We wish you safe journeys and pray that you have a most wonderful time reconnecting with family and friends.  Happy Thanksgiving!

See you next week!
