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 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!
New USO Tribute Variety Show a Nostalgic Highlight
Country Travel DISCOVERIES's popular unpack-once desert escape, Palm Springs Winter Oasis (Feb 15-21), has been freshened up this year with new stops, including an exciting new program commemorating the role of the USO in lifting servicemen's (and the country's) spirits in times of war and peace. The USO Tribute Show at Palm Springs' Air Museum stars comedian Bill Johnson as Bob Hope (pictured right) and a talented cast recreating the iconic performances by the Andrews Sisters, Bing Crosby, and many more from the WWII, Korea and Vietnam eras.
This article, courtesy USOShow.com, recounts the beginnings and lasting legacy of the USO and their cherished "Camp Shows".

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...
