Traveling With Explorers
  Imagine a sunrise yoga session overlooking the animal filled plains of the Masai Mara or Sabi Sands. 2014 sees luxury eco-lodges & savvy safari camps across the continent featuring all the offerings of wellness retreats from traditional organic cuisine, holistic spa treatments & hot springs to bush yoga sessions, running guides & spiritual blessings for travelers to enjoy between safaris. It was only a matter of time until the wellness retreat concept of Central America & Asia made its way to Africa.   For the first time in 2014, travelers will have the chance to accompany 21st Century explorers on an expedition. Designed to bring the spirit & thrill of exploration to travel enthusiasts, visit Galapagos with a famous photographer, trek China's Tea Horse Road with an author, experience Iceland's Northern Lights with a renowned TV personality & so many other options. Nothing quite says adventure like traveling with those who know the world is not yet entirely discovered.

  100 Years Of History
Panama Canal Centennial
  A Year for Champions
Getting Into The Games
  2014 sees an influx to this Central American gem as travelers celebrate the 100th anniversary of one of the century's most monumental engineering feats, the Panama Canal. This marvel is best experienced with a cruise or private guided tour of its legendary locks, bookended with jungle safaris, beach time, aboriginal encounters & more.   2014 is set to be one of the most adrenaline packed years of international sporting events in decades. With the Winter Olympics in Russia, the World Cup in Brazil, Golf's Ryder Cup in Scotland & annuals such as the Masters, Super Bowl & F1 Grand Prix Racing, sports fans are making travel plans to experience the magic of these prestigious championships firsthand.

  The Farm to Table Philosophy
Going Global
  Private Yachts
Villas of the Seas
  Modern day foodies will love going beyond traditional market visits, wine tastings & cooking lessons in 2014. In depth encounters, such as overnights at family farms in South Africa, days spent alongside Mallorcan shepherds in Spain, beekeeping in Slovenia & herding cattle with Patagonia's gauchos will be much sought after in the coming year.   With the luxury & intimacy of a villa, fully crewed private ship charters offer groups the thrill of touring different regions without the long drives, flights & repacking. Passengers can be the captain of their own adventure, dropping anchor at their own pace. A new fleet of affordable charters means that journeys by private yacht aren't just for the rich & famous any more.

  Safaris With Heart
Hands On Animal Conservation
  Private Access
& Face-to-Face Encounters
  Exotic animal encounters on an African safari are not just for photo ops anymore. Travelers are delving beyond the lens to interact & help foster the preservation of endangered species & their habitats. From volunteering at a cheetah sanctuary in Namibia & monitoring endangered wild dogs in South Africa to walking with rescued elephants in Botswana & helping to protect black rhinos in Zambia, there are a variety of ways for visitors to leave their legacy in Africa.   Affluent adventurers in 2014 are standing out from the crowds by booking private VIP tours featuring afterhours access to landmarks such as Rome's Vatican, England's Windsor Castle, Siem Reap's Angkor Wat, or Beijing's Forbidden City. It's not just the destination that counts, but the people you meet along the way. Face-to-face encounters with Dostoevsky's great great grandson & high tea with a Lord of the Manor in England, have seen a spike in sales & represent the future of travel.

A Journey to Recovery
Commemorating D-Day
  Before November's devastating typhoon, the "Pearl of the Pacific" had been climbing the globetrotting hotlists with its exotic animals, idyllic beaches & new generation of luxury properties. The Philippines is not to be missed in 2014 as highlights such as Manila, Cebu, the chocolate hills of Bohol & the beaches of Bora are unaffected & the islands need visitors more than ever.   June 6, 2014 marks the 70th anniversary of D-Day in France, making it the ideal time to visit this storied site. Travelers can travel back in time by visiting the haunting battle sites of Normandy. Regal commemorations, historical reenactments, parades, open air concerts, parachute drops & fireworks throughout the year will honor the brave people who fought in World War II.
