Find out what adventures other travel planners have recently experienced in this month’s edition of Where We’ve Been.


West Bend Area Chamber of Commerce

West Bend, Wisconsin

Trip: Ireland

Tour Operator: Collette

Date: October 2013

The West Bend Chamber’s members explored the breathtaking country of Ireland on an eight-day tour that took them across the country to the coast and back. The tour included stops and attractions in Dublin, Killarney, Galway and southern Ireland.

“We loved our tour of Dublin, which included the Guinness Warehouse, St. Patrick’s Cathedral and a free day and a half. We also enjoyed our one night at Ashford Castle. The next day we toured the Tullamore Distillery, which makes Irish whiskey, before spending our final night in Dublin.”

— Craig Farrell, Executive Director

Mid America Bank, Friendship Travel Club

Linn, Missouri

Trip: Overland Park, Kansas

Date: October 2014

Since many of the Friendship Travel Club’s members share an enthusiasm for sewing and quilting, Missy Hoskins planned a trip around the Original Sewing and Quilt Expo in Overland Park, Kansas.

“This fabulous once-a-year event is well worth the wait. Our group enjoyed the lectures and hands-on workshops with the most respected name in quilting, fashion sewing, machine embroidery and embellishments.”
