  • Anyone else going April 18, 2019 Eastbound? China, Yangtze River and Hong Kong. We are a year away!

    I did the Eastbound trip the end of May this year, and am happy to give some feedback on dining on the Yangtze Explorer. We found the food to be quite good, with much variety, decent quality and taste. Not gourmet, but quite decent. Dinner offerings differed from day to day, which was good. It was certainly more than plentiful, with lots of choices, since it is served family style on a large lazy susan enabling a dozen people to share lots of things. You do not order - a variety of dishes come out, and are replenished if run down. Breakfast and lunch were of a buffet style. For breakfast there were both Western offerings as well as Chinese cuisine. They did a good job accomodating vegan needs. If that is needed, advise Tauck in advance and all venues, including the ship, will work with you on that. On the ship that meant special items brought out for a vegan, but the portion was so large that others at the table could partake. So with a vegan, more food than normal was provided. On the last night of the sail there was a farewell dinner, which was a bit more fancy, with a printed up menu detailing all that was to come. I had taken a photo of the menu, and just looked and counted 14 offerings. Enjoy your trip - you are in for a great one!

    And, Gary, ( from my experience), sometimes you just take a quick stop, put up the camera, hit the zoom ( have a “super zoom”), hit the button and end up with the best shot of your trip ( a leopard descending a tree, frontwards, from his afternoon nap)! In what universe does that happen? In other words, the animals do not always give you a lot of time posing while you do a set-up. Have your camera at the ready.

    I was reading today that Kenya has just produced some very attractive new coins, replacing past leaders with animals. The one the article shows is of an elephant. I’d love to get some next time I visit

When I was in grade school I was often in the presence of gray-haired ladies, such as school teachers, guidance counselors, nurses, den mothers, etc., who often addressed children as “dear.” At that time I gave no thought to what the word meant. It was just the way they talked. It was almost like an expletive, a sound with no definition...

Thanksgiving weekend is considered to be the heaviest travel weekend of the year, but it’s different from most travel. For most people Thanksgiving is a special day once a year for spending time with family or close friends. It’s not necessarily a trip back home in the geographical sense, but it’s a journey back home for the ...
