Tour Details:

Welcome to your perfect break in the Pacific Northwest, where giant trees frame snowy volcanoes and plump rivers rush to the ocean.

Spend a full day exploring Deception Pass State Park, Whidbey Island, and the Skagit Valley with a group of fun and adventurous women like yourself. Forge new connections while discovering Washington’s history and the great outdoors.

Beloved by locals, Deception Pass State Park is a short drive from Seattle and a hidden highlight of Washington State. Located on the northern end of the largest island in the Salish Sea, Deception Pass provides unparalleled opportunities to experience the true Pacific Northwest with miles of rugged coast, massive old-growth trees, and adrenaline-pumping bridges.

You will meet your guide at Deception Pass State Park and explore the fascinating and tumultuous history of the gateway to the Salish Sea. This part of the Sound is a must-do for bird-watchers and is an ideal spot for frequent sightings of both sea and river otters.

Enjoy a delicious lunch on the water before venturing further south onto Whidbey Island to uncover American military history at Fort Casey State Park, or climb up to Mt. Erie for some panoramic views.

In the afternoon, make your way back to Seattle through the bucolic Skagit Valley, home to Washington’s famous tulips, stopping to poke around the artistic riverside town of La Conner or patronize a farm stand or two.

Women's Travel Book Club: Holy Cow

Online event

Hello there!

Join us for an informal discussion of Holy Cow this May.

We may not be able to visit India right now, but we can travel vicariously through this celebrated memoir.

Here's more about the book:

In her twenties, journalist Sarah Macdonald backpacked around India and came away with a lasting impression of heat, pollution and poverty. So when an airport beggar read her palm and told her she would return to India—and for love—she screamed, “Never!” and gave the country, and him, the finger.

But eleven years later, the prophecy comes true. When the love of Sarah’s life is posted to India, she quits her dream job to move to the most polluted city on earth, New Delhi. For Sarah this seems like the ultimate sacrifice for love, and it almost kills her, literally. Just settled, she falls dangerously ill with double pneumonia, an experience that compels her to face some serious questions about her own fragile mortality and inner spiritual void. “I must find peace in the only place possible in India,” she concludes. “Within.” Thus begins her journey of discovery through India in search of the meaning of life and death.

Holy Cow is Macdonald’s often hilarious chronicle of her adventures in a land of chaos and contradiction, of encounters with Hinduism, Islam and Jainism, Sufis, Sikhs, Parsis and Christians and a kaleidoscope of yogis, swamis and Bollywood stars. From spiritual retreats and crumbling nirvanas to war zones and New Delhi nightclubs, it is a journey that only a woman on a mission to save her soul, her love life—and her sanity—can survive.

How our Travel Book Club works:

We meet online via Zoom to chat about our monthly book pick. I have a list of discussion questions for our group, and you can bring your own questions and comments too if you have some.

Grab your drink of choice and join us for an hour to talk story and travel. We may not be able to travel far these days, but we can travel vicariously via literature!
