  • Convertible Caravans of Europe ~ An Authentic Vacation Experience

    We’ve just become aware of a new variation on vacation packages: Convertible Caravans of Europe! No, it’s not tent camping. It’s not even touring in convertibles~although that is an option. It’s a collection of independent travelers brought together to tour some of the most scenic parts of Europe driving in a private car at their own pace. Created for those who want to explore in safety, comfort, and in the company of like-minded explorers. Special interest itineraries~for Golfers (and non-golfing companions,) Mancations (fast paced men-only itineraries,) Classic, MYWay (custom tailored itineraries,) Soft Caravans for those with special needs, and my favorite ~ itineraries for foodies! These are small group trips with a minimum and maximum number of participants based on the program. Check out the possibilities and picture yourself touring Europe in a whole new way.
