Winter 2012
Dear UCSB Alumni and Friends,
Today is your day. You’re off to great places! You’re off and away!” – Dr. Seuss
Seuss’ works many times imparts, wisdom to us grown ups. As Americans, we are fortunate to travel near and far. Having recently returned from Cuba, with Gaucho Getaways, where even in-country travel restrictions apply for Cubans with means to travel, it make you appreciate the opportunities we have to visit and learn about the world experientially.
You have brains in your head.
You have feet in your shoes.
You can steer yourself any direction you choose.

Join Gaucho Getaways for upcoming 2012 departures to India, France, and Africa. Our Saxony and Rhine programs still have availability as well. If you act quickly you can still venture to Cuba May 1 and May 3. Watch for our July newsletter, as 2013 will be, inclusive of many new destinations mixed in with some popular returns! A few to check out: Antarctica with UCSB professor emeritus Bruce Luyendyk, Myanmar, and Singapore. In the meanwhile, please periodically check our website for 2013 updates, inclusive of the return of our popular National Parks and Lodges trip.
I do hope you’ll join us for a Gaucho Getaways in 2012 or 2013, as You’ll be on your way up! You'll be seeing great sights! You'll join the high fliers who soar to high heights.
