Dear Sandy,

Adventure Associates would like to highlight our dedication to 20 years of travel for women. In the featured article of this newsletter, read about why women choose to travel, what it is they want out of group adventures, and how Adventure Associates has given women the opportunity for empowerment through travel since 1987.

Summer escapes are fast approaching! June is Orca Month in the San Juan Islands...don't miss an opportunity to sea kayak alongside majestic Orca Whales this summer. Our Fall international journeys are also just around the corner - plan ahead for these once-in-a-lifetime adventures: Bhutan, Copper Canyon, Laos & Cambodia or any custom designed trip!

Lastly, check out our successful winter trips! The climb up Mt. Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, East Africa was a great success, followed by a cultural and wildlife safari to match no other. Our annual Yellowstone Ski Safari was also fantastic! See the photos and read the travel blogs below.
