Galapagos...It’s a place of mystery that millions know about, but only a handful have explored. To visit is to live a moment like you never have before. Trip Dates : January 8 - 17, 2020 Trip Cost : $5700 (excluding international flights) *2 rooms left! See more details here : http://globe-drifters.com/tour/galapagos-islands-cruise/ This trip isn't women-specific, but all are welcome! Usually at least 80-90% of everyone on each trip are solo female travelers. This trip offers a chance to experience the little explored mainland of Ecuador, but the highlight of the tour will be the 5-day cruise among five of the islands. Travel to the Galapagos Islands is quite expensive. Each year, only a certain number of passes are available in an effort to moderate the human impact on and preserve these beautiful islands. A luxury class catamaran that is brand new (constructed in 2017) has been selected because it has one of the best itineraries available and also because it is one of the newest boats to be added to the fleet that is permitted to sail around the islands. Taking into consideration the mainland tour around Ecuador and the top notch quality of the boat, this tour is very reasonably priced. What is included : 4 nights accommodation in Ecuador Activities as indicated on itinerary Round-trip flight : Guayaquil – Baltra / Baltra – Quito Ground & sea transportation 5-day cruise on The Alia (all-inclusive) Bilingual national park guide & local Ecuador guide Use of snorkeling equipment and wetsuits All breakfasts, 6 lunches, 4 dinners $20 Transit Control Card What is NOT included : Optional excursions and activities Some lunches and dinners Alcoholic beverages Gratuities International flight Insurance Airport pick-up and drop-off $100 Galapagos National Park fee *Subject to change Souvenirs The luxury motor catamaran that we’ll be cruising around the islands is The Alia. It has 9 rooms each with a private balcony offering spectacular views of the ocean. Each room is also air-conditioned with its own private bathroom. There’s a beautiful dining room where we will have our meals together each day. For some R&R, there is a spacious lounge area, bar and jacuzzi located on the sundeck with panoramic views. On bigger boats, it can take as long as two hours for all passengers to board and disembark from the boat, which in turn, takes away from the time to explore each island. With land-based tours, day trips from a base island to other various islands can take 3 or more hours to arrive at each destination, leaving only a short time to explore before returning to the base island. A cruise is optimal because it allows us to sail to our destination at night and when we wake up in the morning, we will have already arrived at our destination! This means we can explore less visited islands that have a more bountiful quantity of wildlife and plant life and have much less tourists.

MYANMAR (Burma) TRIP! (15 days / 14 nights) Myanmar has been shrouded in mystery over the last half century, but has recently become open for tourists. It is much more than golden pagodas as far as the eye can see though. We’ll check out the diverse villages around Inle Lake and go hot air ballooning over stretches of fields filled with ancient pagodas in Bagan, but we’ll also visit Chin State, which just opened up to travelers a few years ago and we’ll get to visit lots of very distinct ethnic tribes that few have gotten to visit before. Below is some information. Message Jodie or email [masked] if you are interested or have any questions.
