WWF Escape to the Andes

We visited the Andean school which was built by World Expeditions and presented the children with books, pens, pencils etc which some of us had brought from Australia. The extra weight was worthwhile when we saw the expressions on the children’s faces. I could never imagine children in Australia smiling so broadly at being given an exercise book and pen!

Seville, Sea and Sierra

A walking tour with a difference including all the best scenery, history, traditions and gastronomy of western Andalucia. The sparkling Atlantic Ocean washes the golden sands of the Costa de la Luz with its dunes, salt-pans, traditional craft fishing and sea birds. Cadiz city, protected from attack on its peninsula, has controlled for 3000 years the seaways and the entry to the Guadalquivir, Andalucia's biggest river. Nearby is Jerez, renown for its wines and its flamenco dance. The river is navigated by ships upstream to Seville: the capital of Andalucia, replete with the history of Iberians, Romans, Moors and Castilians, a producer of fine porcelain and the main home of Flamenco. A world away from the bustle of Seville is the Sierra de Aracena Natural Park, with cork-oak forests, chestnut groves, raptors, Iberian pigs and traditional white villages.
