Welcome to Malta! And what a welcome; the beautiful hard, blue skies and sun-warmed streets of the honey-colored limestone for which the island was named, encouraged some early arriving guests to bask away our travel kinks over a cappuccino in a sidewalk café, while more energetic souls explored the ramparts, monuments, and shops of Valletta. While some of us could not resist probing a few layers of this...

Bergen, Norway / Embark Ocean Adventurer
Unusually for Bergen, it was a dry, warm and sunny weekend when we arrived here to begin our travels in Wild Norway and Svalbard.

Settling into the luxurious Cable Beach Club Resort we began to acclimatize, rest and explore the man-made tropical landscapes created here....
