I have travelled around the globe and personally consulted with A&K experts in our 52 offices to come up with recommendations for the essential travel destinations in the coming year. Each locale offers adventure and authentic cultural interactions. From a private people-to-people journey in Cuba to a Patagonian adventure through rugged landscapes, these are experiences that will change the way you look at the world, and I am excited to welcome you on a journey to experience them firsthand.

Happy travels,
