Our guide and group were wonderful. Most of the sites visited fascinating and worth it. I especially loved the visit with the monk and the Hakone Outdoor Art Museum.

It broke my heart that the one day in Tokyo was such a waste of time. Please, taking us to a mediocre mall and a car exhibit, what were you thinking? There should of been two days allotted to that fabulous city to see the real sites. Also, I am an adult and making sushi for four year old was a huge insult and should be skipped at all costs. Also I believe that the trip to Nari should be included as part of the trip and not an optional tour.

Except for breakfasts, the food was cafeteria grade at best and repetitive. You could do better. The best food was that which we picked ourselves.

I would never recommend going in cherry blossom time. There were 80 buses lined up to get into the outdoor sites. Buy a postcard and put it on your wall, or better yet, visit Washington DC. I would recommend this trip if modifications were made.

FSJourneys offers a travel experience like no other. The focus is personal growth and reflection. Small groups make traveling intimate, and connecting with others easy. I traveled by myself on this trip and met others who did the same. Kristie works hard to bring people together, yet allows for the personal space we all may also need when engaging in a meditative yoga retreat. There are opportunities to enjoy things in such an intimate setting. I even had a private driver for a hike others opted out of. The value for the price is very high, and you don't realize this until you get there. We stayed in a variety of places, each accomodation offering something unique. Sometimes luxury, sometimes home stay or lack of heat. We ate so healthy, I lost 10#s without even trying. Healthy foods and walking in the Andes is the perfect way to feel in shape and like you are doing something good for your body.
One must be flexible when traveling in Peru, and there were some activities which were changed or canceled due to circumstances both inside the group, and out, but it's part of the experience when traveling to areas that are more remote. Don't get upset if the wifi doesn't really work. ;-) It's okay.... there is so much beauty all around, you will want to keep your attention at 100% in the present moment!
PachaMama is Mother Earth. You will learn much about local customs, and participate in amazing ceremonies in an intimate setting. After this trip, I imagine other tours "small group" settings may feel overwhelming.
Kristie connects to her clients, and in my experience... it became a tour of traveling friends.... what a great experience.

Cuba: Havana Weekend Getaway

  • Value 5.0

This trip was really superb, starting with the folks like Alex in the San Diego office to our tour guide in Havana, Orelvis (a perfect gentleman if there ever was one--and he seemed to know absolutely EVERYTHING about Havana), and our driver, Boris (who was an extremely safe driver, and the SUV that was our transportation was a practically new Honda), and our friendly hostess at the casa particular (B&B).

But at breakfast at the casa particular, keep in mind the CDC guidelines for healthy travel: cook it, boil it, peel it (yourself) or FORGET IT. So the bowl of fruit and the fruit juices? Pass them up in favor of coffee and toast. I know that sounds boring, but after I got home, I ended up in the hospital emergency room for dehydration due to e-coli--my fault for not following the CDC guidelines.

Also, to get up to my room at the casa particular, I had to climb a narrow, curved marble staircase--I took extra care not to fall either on the way up or on the way down.

The activities and attractions were first rate (but you must keep in mind that you're on "Cuban time," and not everything runs like a Swiss train). From the Hemingway house to the canon ceremony (which I loved even though it was a substitution for another event that was unexpectedly closed) to the jazz club (again, we went to one jazz club that for some reason didn't work out, but no problem--Orelvis took us to another jazz club recommended by his supervisor in Havana) to the art museum to the Malecon to the outdoor terrace at the Hotel Nacional and more, it was amazing how much we saw of Havana in about 72 hours.

There were only four people on the trip, and that was both a good thing and a bad thing--good because each of us received a great deal of attention from Orelvis and bad because two of the four didn't want to follow the itinerary and often went off on their own and then kept the rest of us waiting for them to return (highly frustrating--finally Boris said, "the schedule is the schedule," and we stopped catering to them). One of them spoke fluent Spanish--good for her--but I did wish that Orelvis had curtailed the lengthy conversations that she initiated with him, which the rest of us could not understand.

Two of my favorite activities were ones that I arranged myself: attending the world-class ballet at the gorgeously restored el Gran Teatro and then taking a yellow 1950 Chevrolet convertible with an Italian driver, who was an absolute hoot, back to the casa particular.

And the food at the private restaurants known as paladars was first rate. We even had lunch at one that Anthony Bourdain recently featured on his CNN travel show "Parts Unknown."

Just a small word of caution: sometimes there wasn't enough bottled water in the SUV in which we were riding, especially when we were dropped off at the casa particular at night. Make sure that you have plenty of bottled water with you at all times. (The CDC even recommends that you brush your teeth with bottled water.)

I also wish I had brought another pair of shoes with me because with all of the walking in the heat of the Cuban sun, my feet swelled. Fortunately, I had brought some Band-Aids with me, which helped cushion the sore spots.

I highly recommend this trip--to my way of thinking, it's much better than taking a cruise ship that only docks in Havana for one or two nights--and the "Havana Weekend Getaway" is the most popular trip to Cuba that is offered by Discover Corps, as I learned from Orelvis.

Mexico Surf and Yoga Adventure

Trip of a Lifetime is the only way to describe Access Trips' Mexico mountain bike and surfing trip. The biking is challenging and takes you through the real Mexico. You will ride past cowboys on horseback herding cattle and stop in a number of tiny villages. There you are able to try homemade ice cream or a treat hot out of an earthen oven. If you are really lucky, you may sample some local moonshine called "ricia" that is as smooth as any tequila. The terrain is spectacular. The accommodations in Moscato are in an adobe and plank and timber hacienda; truly beautiful. Just as you are getting saddle sore, it is off to Sayulita where you can soak up the sun, sand, surf and cervezas. The surfing is at a picture postcard beach with surfing for every level and Sayulita has more varieties of fish tacos than you could try in two weeks. This was a great trip; best I've ever taken and I am a repeat customer. Read more

Yoga, Meditation & Wellness Tours and Travel Guide


Yoga, Meditation & Wellness Attractions & Landmarks Guide

Does the idea of switching off and getting back in touch with yourself sound like a good idea from a break? Are you passionate about becoming closer with your natural surroundings?

If so, you wouldn’t be the only one. With the rise in popularity of yoga retreats and meditation over recent years, there is now a wide range of yoga and meditation retreats available to help you do just that. Whatever style of yoga you prefer or level you’re at, there’s truly something for everyone. Do note that the amount of yoga included and expected previous experience can vary significantly, so we advise you to research into that when booking your trip. Namaste!

The History of Yoga

The origins of the ancient practice of Yoga have been traced back over 5,000 years to India. Yoga has its roots in Hinduism, although there are commonly no particular religion or religious practices directly related to yoga today. 

The name Yoga comes from the Sanskrit word, Yog, which originally meant to “hitch up” or “put to practical use.” Sanskrit was the ancient Indo-European language of the Vedas, which are India’s ancient religious texts, from which Yoga was born. Yoga was brought to Europe and the United States in the 19th century by Swami Vivekananda and grew in popularity from there. 

Styles of Yoga 

Yoga, as commonly referred to today in the west, is the practice of Yoga Asanas or poses, whereas in India, Yoga is broader than asana practice and is viewed as a lifestyle and set of spiritual beliefs and standards for living. 

As yoga has rapidly gained in popularity, the number of styles of yoga has increased, with Yin Yoga, Flow Yoga and Hot Yoga standing out as some of the most popular styles. Tantra is also a style of yoga which originated from Hatha. Hatha Yoga and Ashtanga Yoga are older and are some of the most classical styles---a great option for beginners looking to get a solid foundation in the practice of yoga.   

Benefits of Yoga & Meditation Retreats

One of the great benefits of attending a yoga retreat can be the opportunity that it gives to immerse yourself in learning a new practice and acquiring more experience than you would have the opportunity to at home. Through a week of daily yoga sessions, you can build up a more solid knowledge, enough to be able to take your own mini-routine home to be able to practice more regularly. For experienced yogis and yoginis, there are also a range of retreats to take you on to the next level of your practice.    

Trip Style and other activities

A key part of any yoga retreat is practicing healthy and mindful living, so expect opportunities for plenty of exercise (from gentle walking to kayaking, surfing and other outdoor activities), fresh air, and a healthy diet full of natural ingredients. Many yoga retreats offer meals included and operate a vegetarian or vegan diet. Many are also alcohol free.  

Accommodation standards can vary widely based on the type of retreat, from very simple home-stays or hotels, to luxurious oceanside villas. 

Some yoga retreats will also offer the opportunity to participate in day trips to nearby destinations, or even the opportunity to volunteer with local organizations---providing a unique way to really see another side of the country you’re visiting
