Vacation Trip: Bosnia and Serbia

My friend Carla said she wants to go with me on this exciting trip to Eastern Europe.  She came with me a few years ago to Vietnam and Cambodia.

"What do you enjoy the most? " I asked her.

She said, "The fact that we do stuff.  We see places I'd never see.  Meet people I'd never meet.  And, it's all arranged.  There's no sweat; just climb on the bus and see the world."

And that's so true.  When I go on vacations with friends I never see very much.   I intend to see something but it only occasionally happens.  But a tour is arranged.  Every day we see two or three places of interest and then eat in great restaurants.  Always I try to start the day at a reasonable time (9am) and get back to our hotel by 4pm for a swim or massage or simply to relax.  Then dinner at 7pm.
Work and play.   Spiritual balance.
Also, a complete day-to-day itinerary is now available on my website for you to see how wonderful the trip will be!  Visit my website, print everything out then call Shama and book your place.  The initial effort rests with making the call and reserving a place on our Spiritual Journey to Eastern Europe.  After that, the effort and planning fall on us. Trust me, you will not be disappointed.
