England and Wales

June 14-29, 2019
Chess pieces with the UK and Welsh flags

Part three of our British Isles trilogy (Ireland in 2017, Scotland in 2018) will find us in jolly old England and her lovely neighbor, Wales. We’re still in the early planning stages, but you can count on a proper treatment of the history, the culture, and the institutions of both countries, thus rounding out our understanding of the United Kingdom.

The Shaw Festival

September 5-9, 2019
The musical Ragtime

As always, in the fall we will return once more to this lovely village on the shores of Lake Ontario for the best weekend of theatre on the calendar. We won’t know next year’s play list until November, but keep your eye out for the brochure when it arrives in your mailbox next January. In the meantime, go ahead and sign up for this year’s trip now so you won’t miss this fun and entertaining weekend. We take care of everything. All you have to do is join us!

Belize and Guatemala

November 2019
Mayan ruin

Reprising one of our earliest international trips from way back in 2006, we return to Central America to follow the rise and fall of the Mayan civilization. With all of the recent discoveries in the field of Mayan archaeology, it is time to update our understanding of this fascinating culture while immersing ourselves in the wonderful towns and villages of their modern descendants along the way. Beginning in the western highlands of Belize, we’ll explore the archaeological sites of Caracol, Xunantunich, Tikal, Yaxha, and Iximche, while enjoying cultural opportunities in Lake Atitlán, the mountain towns of Huehuetenango, Todos Santos, and Chichicastenango, and concluding our trip in the lovely town of Antigua. This is going to be a good one, too!
