Welcome To Magnificent Journeys

     Magnificent Journeys is already working on future departures for 2015/16  to include: “Intriguing Indochina” Nov 7th thru Nov 30th 2015, an expedition to:


  Laos                             Cambodia                       and Vietnam

    Hi all my Yogi friends and world travelers!! It’s hard to believe November is right around the corner and I am preparing for my departure to Southeast Asia. Yes, the “Intriguing Indochina” voyage has actually been two years in the making. It is set to be the ultimate journey for those who want to immerse themselves in the beauty, mystery and magic of Laos, Cambodia, and Vietnam.

    I am actually departing a few days early, November 3rd, to make a stopover in the infamous and over-the-top city creation that calls itself Dubai, in the heart of the United Arab Emirates. I am flying Emirates Airline roundtrip to Ho Chi Minh City, and since Emirates connects via Dubai from JFK, it makes for the perfect stopover on the way. ( Have a look at www.emirates.com ) I am fortunate to be meeting some colleagues on location at one of my all-time favorite hotel brands, The Shangri-La Dubai. ( You can see their entire collection at www.shangri-la.com ) I am looking forward to being spoiled and pampered in utter luxury while I get out and seek a little adventure in the city and surrounds. I have a 4 wheel drive jeep Desert Safari planned into the Arabian dunes, right outside the city.

    Next I fly on to Ho Chi Minh City where I meet up with my guide from Boundless Journeys ( www.boundlessjourneys.com ) for my 10 day Cultural Explorer Tour of Vietnam. The tour travels north from Saigon via Hue, Hoi An and Ha Long Bay en route to Hanoi. ( For the full itinerary, ( www.boundlessjourneys.com/asia/vietnam/cultural-explorer )

    I then depart Hanoi and head on to Laos independently. My Virtuoso colleagues from Trails of Indochina will be waiting for me in Luang Prabang and will assist me privately for a week of adventure in Laos and Cambodia. Highlights include feeding and bathing the elephants at the Elephant Village Reserve in Laos, as well as exploring the wonders of Angkor Wat in Cambodia. For the full itinerary, just click:

( Indochina Itinerary )

    From Siem Reap, Cambodia I board the lovely river AMA Dara ( AMA Waterways ) and embark on the final leg of my southeast Asia sojourn.... a seven night cruise down the Mekong River arriving back where I began in Ho Chi Minh City. A highlight of the cruise is the visit to Phnom Penh...  ( For the full itinerary, just click : www.amawaterways.com/vietnam-cambodia-mekong-2015 )

    After a rest at the Sofitel, I take off on Emirates Airlines, returning to JFK and ultimately home to Charlotte, N.C. on December 2nd.
