The holidays have never been as memorable as they are on this incredible journey from East Africa across the Indian Ocean to Sri Lanka. Bookended by two nights each in the bustling metropolises of Nairobi and Colombo, this epic voyage spans the Christmas and New Year’s holidays, indulging you with the natural, cultural and historical gifts of Kenya, Tanzania and the island nations of the Comoros, Seychelles and Maldives en route to Sri Lanka. Observe wild animals and sea life, admire French and Dutch colonial architecture, walk on pristine beaches and in Buddhist temples adorned with murals, and hear from distinguished speakers and local experts who bring these destinations to life.

Afternoon: Mahé, measuring 28km long by 8km wide, is the largest island and cultural and economic hub of the Seychelles. It is home to the international airport and the nation’s capital, Victoria. The island is home to almost 90 per cent of the total population (or approximately 72,200 people) and reflects Seychelles' diverse ethnicity from African, Indian, Chinese and European populations.

With a backdrop of towering 1000m granite peaks, Mahé is an extraordinary treasure trove of flora that has evolved over centuries of splendid isolation. Rare endemic plants found nowhere else in the world adorn Mahé’s mist forests in mountain strongholds, such as the Jellyfish Tree, the carnivorous Seychelles Pitcher Plant and the Seychelles Vanilla Orchid.

First visited by the British in 1609, Mahé was then forgotten until Lazare Picault's expedition of 1742 when the gradual process of settling the island began, first by the French whose direct influence continued until 1814 and then as a British colony until Seychelles gained independence in 1976.

After transferring from the ship to Victoria you will start your guided excursion of the capital: you will see its bustling market and then enjoy a walk through the magical Botanical Garden. Then drive to San Soucis Mountain and the Mission Lodge. This was once the site of a school for liberated slave children built by the London Missionary Society in 1876. Today there are just ruins to be seen at the beginning of the path to the viewing lodge. From the lodge the views out over mountain slopes, the ocean and the west coast of Mahé are fantastic.

Tiny Kuda Bandos is one islet out of thousands in the Maldive archipelago. Tranquil scenery belies the violence that reigned here millennia ago, when volcanoes heaved before sinking beneath the sea. Today's islands lie just a few feet above the surrounding Indian Ocean, the mere tips of those sunken volcanoes.

Tender ashore to relax, swim, explore and enjoy a beach party. At just about 15 acres in size, this private island has gorgeous palm-fringed beaches for relaxing and swimming, while the coral reefs just offshore offer some of the area's best snorkeling. Whether you're scanning the sea for dolphins, the skies for sea birds or the waters for colorful fish, enjoy a great natural experience.

Day 20: Galle, Sri Lanka     

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Accommodation: Aegean Odyssey

Note: Please note that camera fees apply in the Dutch Fort and Maritime Museum.

Breakfast: Breakfast on board.

Morning: Galle is a colourful town that is shrouded in the scent of spices and littered with decaying Dutch-colonial buildings. But most of all Galle is a city of trade and art. These two preoccupations meet at the Fort, which is crammed full of little boutique shops, cafés and hotels owned by local and foreign artists.

You will depart from the port to visit this famous Fort that was built by the Portuguese in 1588 and later modified by the Dutch during the 17th century. It is the best example of a fortified city built by Europeans in South and Southeast Asia, showing the interaction between European architectural styles and South Asian traditions.

The fort was one of the few structures that survived the infamous Boxing Day Tsunami that devastated Galle in December 2004. Today, after 400 years, the Fort still looks amazing thanks to reconstruction work done by the Archaeological Department of Sri Lanka. Entering through the old gates, you will drive around the Fort and visit the rampart, which offers up spectacular views of Galle.

A final visit is included at the National Maritime Museum, which is located within the grounds of Galle Fort. Housed in the Fort's Dutch warehouse, the collection here includes exhibits of marine artifacts recovered during underwater expeditions in the waters off the southern coast of Sri Lanka. Some of the items recovered and on view include artillery guns, shoes, earthenware, smoking pipes, ropes, maps and other marine-related pieces. Some of the items are believed to date back nearly 800 years.

Lunch: Lunch on board or explore local fare on your own.

Afternoon: Free time for independent exploration of Galle.

Dinner: Dinner on board.

Evening: Free evening to prepare belongings for disembarkation.

Morning: Journey to the sacred city of Kandy, a UNESCO World Heritage Site of unusual beauty and the location of the temple containing a tooth of Buddha.

The scenic three-hour drive takes us out of Colombo, through small towns growing all kinds of exotic fruit, past pineapple plantations and paddy fields and up into Sri Lanka’s stunning hill country. One of the day’s highlights is a stop at Peradeniya to walk through the Royal Botanic Gardens. A visit to the Orchid House should not be missed! Continue on to Kandy, founded in the 14th century and the last capital of Sri Lanka’s kings.

This was my wife's and my first trip with Road Scholar. At the time (April, 2012), it was not possible for Americans to directly visit Cuba. You had to do it with a cultural/educational group, often associated with a university. Or, you could fly to Canada, Mexico, or Europe first and then get a flight to Cuba from there (while risking a ~$10,000 fine from the US Government). We opted for the legal route with Road Scholar.

It was a fantastic trip! We had a small-ish group of about 20 people and a wonderful guide, José Luis (who, like most Cubans, had never been off the island).
The trip began in Miami where we had an orientation and spent the night. Then we flew to Havana and stayed in the Hotel Nacional for four nights. It doesn't get more historic -- or fun -- than the Nacional:
https://vimeo.com/41612444

While in Havana, we enjoyed great history/culture lectures from experts, toured various parts of Havana (including Hemmingway's home in the hills nearby), and, on our own, had the opportunity to have dinner at a paladar -- a restaurant inside someone's home.

The Cuban people are friendly but the infrastructure of their country is in shambles. It's been a long time since Russia's deep pockets left the island (1991), and you see poverty everywhere. But not the begging-in-the-street kind. Cuba provides universal health care, education (including room and board all the way through grad/med school!), food staples, and a very modest income (~$30/month) to everyone. Most people add to that income by working on the side.

After Havana, we traveled to Cienfuegos. From there we saw the infamous Bay Of Pigs, but also the wonderful Benny Moré Art School where we learned of the fantastic support for the arts by the Cuban government. Children are identified in grade school as having artistic talent and then funneled into magnet schools like Benny Moré to study art for their entire scholastic career!

Don't go to Cuba for the food. It's edible (and won't make you sick) but rather boring. You mainly get the "three amigos": fish, pork, or chicken, along with rice and/or black beans. But the aged rum is superb and so are the cigars!

Probably my favorite thing on the island, though, was the music -- whether on the street or in a more formal setting:

Cuba is fantastic. Go enjoy it!

Road Scholar offers many tours starting in Utah. The one I took focused of photography of the National Parks in Utah, with a professional photographer traveling with us. The schedule was set up such that we would get "the golden light" at each of the parks. Those not familiar with the term must know that the best light occurs at either sunrise or sunset, when the impact of the sun on objects is diffused by having to travel through the earth's atmosphere on a diagonal rather than vertically.

As such, you can now expect that sleep will be an issue as you will get to bed late and rise early. But the territory is beautiful at all times, and more so illuminated by the golden light.

In order to maximize your sleeping ability, the tour is only offered in the spring and the fall. Doing this in the winter would be pretty cold and require special equipment to traverse the snow. Doing it in the summer would basically mean no sleep as the daylight is so long.

A great learning experience in beautiful territory.

Thank you Road Scholar Staff for planning a wonderful introduction to Cuba today. My previous knowledge was from people who felt they had to leave Cuba more than fifty years ago. I learned from qualified professors, tour guides and from talking to Cuban people from different parts of Cuba who work in different kinds of jobs. I could see how the Cuban people have come together to meet the challenges of the past and to prepare for a brighter future.
