You will see a fort seemingly made of stone in Kunming, discover the Bai culture in the walled city of Cali, and explore the splendor of Lijiany, home of to one of the best-preserved Old Towns in China. France: Visit the D-Day beaches and World War II American Military Cemetery of Normandy and cruise the Seine to Paris with stops at the homes of Monet and Van Gogh.
Myanmar (Burma) and Laos: Though still recovering from the ancillary devastation from constant American bombing during the Vietnam War, Laos is filled with warm and loving people. A century ago, Rudyard Kipling described Burma as a place “quite unlike any land you know about.” Isolated from the world in the recent past, Burma — now known as Myanmar — remains a magical destination, yet one shrouded in history.
Spain: You will see why Spain conjures images of rocky plains and whitewashed villages, majestic cathedrals and simple homes designed by Antoni Gaudi, and rugged castles. You’ll get acquainted with the windmills that taunted Don Quixote, bullfighting rings, the influence of the Moors, the strum of guitar and fiery flamenco dancing. Portugal: You will discover Portugal’s bold explorers, colorful ceramics and close ties to the sea.
