The majestic blue Danube—no other river in the world flows through as many countries. And now, I want to personally invite you to join my wife Lori and me on Magical Danube & Prague (Sep. 12-23, 2015), a very special land tour and river cruise chartered exclusively for CTD travelers. By land and by ship, we'll discover four capital cities in five countries, several UNESCO World Heritage Sites, and wonderful scenic, cultural, rural and culinary experiences too numerous to count!
Bonus Savings on TWO Trips of a Lifetime
Country Travel DISCOVERIES' new 2015 Cruise to Discovery Brochure hits homes this week, with special discount pricing on our two land/cruise discovery tours: Alaska & the Yukon and Magical Danube & Prague: President's Charter Cruise. Can't decide which to take? Enjoy our "bucket list bonus" to save even more when you book both tours by February 27!
Correction to CTD Contact Information
A typo appearing in the February/March 2015 issue of Our Iowa Magazine (pictured) incorrectly lists as our phone number 888-744-8747, which belongs to a wholly unrelated business. For information, reservations, or other assistance in regard to Our Iowa...and Yours, Too! or Our Iowa's Western Treasures, please note and call our actual phone number, 855-744-8747. Thanks for your interest and apologies for any inconvenience.
Edition Features 4 Additional New Destinations and Cruise Specials
Country Travel DISCOVERIES is pleased to announce the mailing of the Expanded Winter Edition of our 2015 Travel Discoveries Catalog -- now including 6 classic tours introduced for 2015 and 4 just-added "Get Active tours". These exciting experiences in Ireland, British Columbia, California's Sonoma region, and Wisconsin's Lake Country were newly created at the request of customers seeking a more physically active, experiential form of discovery travel, and will generally be limited to 28 or fewer travelers.
The Gift of Travel and the Key to Happiness
In 2004, researchers from UC-Boulder and Cornell conducted an expansive study on money and happiness for Northwestern Mutual Financial Network. Money, it turns out, can buy happiness…but not in the way we might think. Apparently, what you buy counts, and people claim to be happier when they invest in meaningful experiences rather than material things. Unlike a new iPad or TV or earrings, such experiences as travel, learning, or social action don’t lose their novelty, depreciate, break or become obsolete.
Find Unparalleled Thermal Relaxation in Costa Rica Winter Paraiso
There are many naturally occurring hot springs around the world, many affiliated with volcanic activity. In Costa Rica, there are hot springs of different temperatures, flow volumes and mineral content that can be found in the regions around the Arenal, Irazu, Miravalles and Rincon de la Vieja Volcanoes, and others in the Orosi Valley or near Ciudad Quesada in San Carlos.
But the perfect combination of volume, temperature and mineral content (low sulfur content to prevent strong odors) that is present in Tabacon Grand Spa Thermal Resort is unique in Costa Rica and worldwide.
Where Will You Get Away to This Winter?
Well, it's official: The 198-year-old Farmer's Almanac predicts that most of the country east of the Rockies will face another nasty winter very much like 2014's -- the winter of tree-cracking snowdumps and polar vortex.
So we here at Country Travel DISCOVERIES in Wisconsin are hedging our bets, already posting our "Spring Forward Winter Escapes" discoveries even before our new 2015 catalog has been released. If you can't bear the thought of enduring the "sequel" this winter, we invite you to JOIN US one or more fun and restorative seasonal escapes...
