Where We’ve Been: September 2014

Travel directors relate where they’ve been traveling recently in our Where We’ve Been article.


Texas First Bank

Texas City, Texas

Trip: Rio, Iguassu Falls and Buenos Aires

Tour Operator: Go Ahead Tours

Date: January, 2014

Travelers from Texas First Bank saw some of the wonders of South America during a trip to Brazil and Argentina last fall. Highlights of the 10-day tour included visits to the fascinating urban centers of Rio de Janeiro and Buenos Aires, as well as a day spent exploring Iguassu Falls.

“Iguassu Falls is on the river dividing Brazil and Argentina. It is like no other place in the New World: Over 275 cascades spread across just over one mile of land.”

— Linda Holm, Texas Travelers coordinator


F&M Trust Company

Chambersburg, Pennsylvania

Trip: Spectacular South Africa

Tour Operator: Collette

Date: January, 2014

The GO Club from F&M Trust sent 22 travelers to escape a Pennsylvania winter in South Africa on Collette’s “Spectacular South Africa” tour. The 13-day journey took them to Johannesburg, Soweto and Capetown, and included safari game drives in two prominent wildlife areas.

“I took a photo on an ostrich at an ostrich ranch in Oudtshoorn, and at the beach in Capetown with Table Mountain in the background. And my husband and I took a photo with the Nelson Mandela statue outside the prison where he was held.”

— L Kay Estep, GO Club coordinator
