You could be enjoying this view of Italy?
This was taken from a very funky and inexpensive condo unit on the island of Sardina, Italy. We called this location "Bedrock City" as it reminded us of The Flintstones cartoon because all the units were made of rock and painted in bright colors. This photo was taken as we sipped a glass of wine on the balcony of our unit and watched a sailboat regatta. We can put you right in that picture.
Stop dreaming about your someday and begin travelling now!
Did you know that eight out of 10 people want to travel to other parts of the world, but never do? So why don't people travel more?
- ~It could be that life just gets in their way, so travel gets put to the bottom of the list.
- ~It could be that they haven't seen the value in travel and therefore don't save any money for travel.
- ~It could be that they don't know how to start travelling.
- ~It could be they are just afraid of taking the steps to go outside their comfort zone.
Until people see the value of travelling they will always find an excuse to stay home or only travel to familiar places. Travel forces people to get out of their routines and comfort zones especially when going to places where the people don't speak English. Travel creates empathy, understanding and wisdom through experience. Travel gives a person a new perspective on other places in the world and we believe that is very important. And once you see the value of travel, it gets put to the top of the list and then we can help you.
We can take the fear out of travelling and travel planning.
Wow Tours is owned by Lynda and D'Arcy Kavanagh and dates back to 2000 when we offered our first tour, a three-week cycling adventure down the Danube from Passau, Germany to Vienna, Austria. As part of that inaugural tour, we took our guests to Venice for a few days before returning to Germany where we explored Munich.
After that, we offered that same Danube tour plus other cycling-based trips to Ireland and Canada’s beautiful Prince Edward Island.
Our clients loved our trips and particularly our ability to offer the unusual as part of each day’s activities.
Then the airline industry, in the wake of 9/11, changed, especially in Canada. So, too, did the insurance industry. The result for us, and likely other small tour operators, was we decided to change what we offered and how we offered it.
We don’t do tours anymore.
Instead, we provide consulting services to individuals and groups wishing to make their own travel experiences as fulfilling as possible. We offer advice about destinations, methods of travel, accommodations, hidden treasures and maximizing your travel dollar. We provide that advice in different ways: in person, through email and by Skype.
While we can provide consulting services about regions of Canada, we specialize in Western Europe.
Once again, our clients enjoy what they receive.
And if you wonder how current our information is, we spend a portion of every year in Europe, exploring new areas, re-visiting familiar ones and making contacts. Almost all of our travel is done by bicycle.
