You can be much warmer – and happier – than now.

We’ve all been sent to our rooms. Our rooms in cold, dark Canada. Not for the first time, either. COVID still has that power over us. But very soon the sun will shine, the days will be warm and our hearts will follow.

Next winter you’ll have a different choice. You can stay here or you can go south. That’s what we’re doing, and we’re inviting you to join us.

If you know about our trips, they don’t involve lying on a beach for a week, but doing adventurous things with fascinating people.

So from January 22 – 29, 2023, we’ll be aboard the 100-guest National Geographic Quest with 50 of our friends as it sails through the Panama Canal and up the west coast of Costa Rica.

This is with Lindblad Expeditions and we’ve been on two of their luxury adventure cruises before, to Antarctica and the Spanish-Portuguese coast. On board and on shore, we were in the hands of the most experienced experts and crew on earth.  One evening during “Recap” with cocktails and appetizers in hand, we saw “The Monster of the Day” that our expedition divers filmed from the ocean floor. Oh, and it’s one thing to kayak on Georgian Bay; it’s another to kayak on the Antarctic Ocean. For one, it’s safer in the Antarctic because the Lindblad people are so on top of it.

All to say, we’ve come to expect the best in comfort, dining, adventure and safety from Lindblad, a view confirmed by Condé Nast Traveler, who last year declared them to be the #1 Small Ship Cruise Line in the world.

Our 8-day trip starts when we land in Panama City, Panama, and ends in San José, Costa Rica. The cost is from $6,479 USD  per person, depending on what level of cabin you choose (this includes a special savings for our group of 5% off the standard rates). Airfare, of course, is extra.

So – a good deal on a great break in a hot place with nice people in the hands of the best in the business. As founder Sven Lindblad said: “Think of us as a conduit to exhilaration.”

You may already know RamsayTravels does group travel for people who don’t do group travel. People like you. So as we all sit and freeze this year, think about what you could be doing, and where you’d like to be (and with whom) this time next year and join us.

So please spend some time with the links above. Then, if you like what you see but you have questions, please e-mail or call me at bob@ramsayinc.com, or 416-822-3452.

Then confirm your place onboard by completing the registration form and sending it to the Lindblad team at groups@expeditions.com. You can also book trip extensions and your air through Lindblad, if desired. Jut email them or call 1-888-773-9007.

One last thought: now that we can lift our heads on a different world, isn’t it time to plan what you may have promised yourself you’d do?

If not now, when?

If not you and your family, who?
