Memorable Travel Experiences
We believe it's more important to savor than to hurry; to soak in the colors, flavors and languages in each destination. To always remember that travel is a privilege. And to share our stories once we're home. Beyond Doorways designs travel for friends, families and small groups.
LUCCA & the ITALIAN RIVIERA
Remember back in 1982 when E.T. wanted to "phone home?" He was the ultimate traveler, far, far from home. Beginning in August 2017, we will be calling Rome 'home' for one year. It is a long-planned adventure for us as we continue to learn more about the country and language we love and enhance our ability to create the most authentic and personal experiences for our traveling friends.
Search the Archives for stories from around the world, from Atlanta to Zanzibar. Several years ago, we began to ask our friends and colleagues to share their travel stories with us. Since then, we've featured stories on micro-enterprise in East Africa; hiking the Camino de Santiago; climbing in the Dolomites; volunteering in Haiti; the waterways of Myanmar; a Greek wedding in Venice; cooking in Aix-en-Provence; an Indo-Fijian wedding and more.
