A very special journey of understanding

Perhaps travel cannot prevent bigotry, but, by demonstrating that all peoples cry, laugh, eat, worry, and die, it can introduce the idea that if we try and understand each other, we may even become friends. - Maya Angelou


Misunderstanding and miscommunication between us and the Arab world foster hatred and threaten peace. Change can come as a result of interchanges between real people. In November, 2013 I was a guest in the United Arab Emirates (UAE ) and Oman. That experience led me to a promise to do what I could to further understanding between the women of our three countries. This trip begins the fulfillment of that commitment. 


I pushed my suppliers to facilitate meetings with us and Emirati and Omani women. I demanded they find activities and experiences to further our understanding of each other. I know you will agree they rose to the challenge with this amazing itinerary. It includes many opportunities not given to an ordinary tour group. But, you are not ordinary. 

Please join me for this very special journey of understanding.
