Greek Islands
The stunningly picturesque Greek islands have inspired mankind back to the time of Homer. This is nature at its most dramatic, visual best. Deep blue and turquoise seas contrasted by dramatically rugged coastlines, plunging cliffs, golden sand beaches, isolated coves, live volcanoes, and memorable sunsets. The human touch is equally attractive with characteristic "sugar-cube" architecture and blue-domed churches, gravity defying white-washed monasteries, photogenic windmills, crumbling fortresses, and villages that spread like white tissue paper atop hills. History has left a footprint as well with archeological sites from ancient Greek times and crusader fortresses to be explored. Come join Reid Coen of Imprint Tours on this visual "cruise" through the highlights of the Dodecanese and Cycladic islands.

Iceland: Geology, Mythology & Northern Lights
Iceland is a country of stark yet beautiful contrasts. In the dead of winter, there are 17 hours of dark night, yet it boasts one the planet's best natural fireworks, the Aurora Borealis, lighting up the sky in otherworldly colorful magnificence. Formed by volcanos and tectonic plates, the land can be harsh, yet it is home to towering fjords, spectacular waterfalls and steaming-hot clear spring lagoons. Currently known as a place that celebrates environmental protection and women's rights, it also has a strong religious history that stretches back to the first century AD. Scientifically minded, the Icelandic people retain a strong connection to the folklore and mythology that resonates in their landscapes and the culture. In every fjord and rock formation lurks a story and every legend still holds sway even in this modern world. Iceland manages to marry the ancient with the new, the myths with the contemporary, creating a cultural rich and geographically astounding experience.

Guatemala: The Mystical Maya
The Mayan culture, with its misunderstood and largely forgotten empire, had its challenges. Like many empires, it ultimately collapsed due to the impact its economy had on the environment. But for centuries, it fostered spiritual and earthly values and practices that ensured humans, animals and plants coexisted in harmony not only with one another, but with the entire cosmos. Learning about the reciprocal relationships between humans and the Mayan deities was as common practice as it is to learn to count or read for our children today.

Cross Cultural Journeys invite you to join us next fall on our journey Guatemala: The Mystical Maya (November 6-18, 2018) as we take a deep dive into this fascinating and beautiful land and culture.
By joining this journey you will support Centro Taa' P'it, a Mayan-founded intercultural learning center, with an after school program using both 21st century technology and environmental education rooted in Mayan traditions and culture.

Fair Trade Travel in Chile
It was a simple moment, but one that defines our connection with this often misunderstood and mistreated country. We sat with a Mapuche family as they recounted the daily struggles of being an indigenous minority group in a country that often doesn't value their ancient culture. A simple question was asked: "How can we support you?" The response profound: "Tell our story. Share our culture. Bring people to sit with us and listen to our tales." The struggle of the Mapuche people to establish a voice in our modern world is just one of the many stories that plays out in Chile. Let us guide you as we share the opportunities to connect with these and many other unique and beautiful cultures across Chile. Whether deep in the high mountains of Patagonia or walking the wind-swept dunes of the Atacama Desert, Chile holds treasures beyond imagination. This is also the reason why it is paramount for travel and tourism to act as a partner to local and indigenous people instead of consuming and degrading their fragile way of life. Chile is calling. Will you answer?
