Meetup on The Orient Express Paris, Venice, Prague, Vienna, Budapest, Istanbul!!

San Francisco International Airport

The Orient Express...you have heard it many times. The romance, the mystery, the adventure! Of course with the opulence too!

You will visit Paris, Venice, Vienna, Prague, Budapest and Istanbul.

This trip brings back the romance and adventure of train travel, along with the mystery of new cities and countries. Brought back in a special way; adding value and removing inflated expense of excessive opulence by replacing it with service and contemporary refinement. The journey will mirror elements of the original Orient Express route from Paris to Istanbul.

The trip starts in Paris and has a full two days there. Also staying two full days in Vienna, 1 3/4 days in Budapest, with full days in Venice, Prague, and two full days in Istanbul. Included: guided tours in each city, at least one meal a day, museum entrances, wine tasting and much more!

In addition, many other options and extras are included. We travel as a group, and also have the flexibility of hop-on, hop-off tours and museum passes with "skip the line" so you enjoy a complete independence. You are free to do your own thing, cater to your special interests, visit other sights and locations in the cities, while still being guided and helped with all the arrangements. You can do it independently, or you can join new friends traveling with you, and do it together. The idea is come alone, meet new like-minded people and make lifelong memories...without being stuck with the "one size fits all" tour formula.

The Orient Express was long-distance passenger train service that began in 1883 with the original endpoints being Paris to Istanbul. In Istanbul the Pera Palace Hotel, built in 1892 as the accommodations at the terminus.

The original name became synonymous with intrigue and was a showcase of luxury with comfort at a time when traveling was still rough and dangerous. The route changed many times and was eventually shortened to Bucharest, and later to Budapest as the endpoint. And again shortened to either Venice or Vienna. By 2007 The Orient Express was only Paris to Strasbourg, and in 2009 stopped service altogether. With the train cars being updated all along they way too. So the real Orient Express is but a memory.

With this trip, we visit more cities, with guided tours included in each, a meal a day, as well as all transfers and hotels with concierge quality service. Give in to the lure of the rails with adventure, tempered with value resulting in memories of a lifetime.

EVERY aspect of this trip is epic. Visit picturesque and storied cities. Enjoy four night trains and experience the enchantment of the rails. We are even staying in the original destination of Pera Palace Hotel in Istanbul with it's grandeur and opulence.

Includes:
* 4 night trains with sleeping compartment accommodations
* 6 nights in 4-star or higher hotels with best central locations
* all transfers
* guided tours in each city
* entrance to museums in each city
* at least one meal a day
and more...

The only way to secure your spot is a $500 deposit. Fully refundable to 90 days before the event. Final payment due 60 days before

$500 deposit plus the $2,990 final payment = $3,490 total cost.
Limited capacity of 24 total. This trip will fill up extremely quickly.
Live the adventure instead of only dreaming it !!!

Live the adventure instead of only dreaming it!

Camping Labor Day Weekend: Big Pine Lakes!!! Glaciers, Roaring Rivers

Big Pine Creek Trailhead

This year we get to start and end the summer at an amazing place.

Memorial Day Weekend Filled. Don't miss out here too

Big Pine Lakes is an amazing hidden gem. The water is a crazy hue. The Minarets rising above are stunning.

RSVP does not guarantee your spot. Payment is the only way to secure you place. Payment link https://py.pl/PizYU

Our events always fill up. And with lower limit . . . it will fill faster.

You don't see trips often to Big Pine Lakes. This is because area is only open from May to October. With such a small window sites are super hard to get. Especially for holiday weekends.
AND WE HAVE A PRIVATE SITE FOR Labor Day WEEKEND!!!!!!

Our site is amazing. Tons of conveniences. Small rustic cafe that serves breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Many of the sites have electrical and water. or close by. Restrooms are close. Space for cars nearby.

Tons of shade from mature pines for many of the sites

We are steps away from the trail-head AND steps away from the roaring glacier fed Big Pine Creek.

Drive Time to the site from LA is reasonable with beautiful places to visit and stop at on the way there or home. From SF . . . it's a longer drive.

You only need the basics of camping gear. Perfect for first-timers. We have zooms ahead of time for First-timers.

Food: Everyone brings, stores and prepares their own food. This is for safety AND allergies. It's impossible for us to provide food that meets every diet limit, restriction, allergen. All food remains covered

Hiking and excursions: Since there are multiple things to do, we will use this to a social distancing advantage. Hikes & excursions will head out at multiple times making small groups

Event is rain or shine.

Dogs OK on trail and in camp.

Firewood: We will provide a bundle of firewood to start. If you want a super roaring fire you can pickup some extra at the small store.

Carpools? Normally we make a carpool resource. It goes out a week in advance of the event.

Cost for this adventure?
4 Days/3 nights on a Holiday Weekend in an AMAZING place
Roaring river, AMAZING ALPINE LAKES, cafe, side trips!

$124 Per Person https://py.pl/PizYU RSVP
17 and under are 1/2 (contact for a link)

What if I have a +1 or +whatever? Cost is Per Person. Just do the payment link a 2nd or 3rd time.

Dogs and Kids totally OK.

What if I stay two nights. Is it less? No. But since we have for Sun night you can stay as late as you want on Sunday before packing up. It gives us flexibility. Why not stay till Mon?

Refunds given if requested 2 weeks before event start. If less than 2 weeks: 100% Full Credit applied to ANY future event we run.

Are you frustrated with "surveys" that organizers have you fill out so they can discriminate? Are they even proud of discriminating and proclaim it by saying they pick and choose and exclude? The proclaim they are the bouncer at the door to keep out who they wish to exclude. Discrimination is not something to be proud of or to proclaim as a good thing.

We do NOT discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, age, disability, and where applicable, sex, marital status, familial status, parental status, religion, sexual orientation, genetic information, political beliefs, or even for belly button lint.
