Peru Community Project

I really liked the community service trip since I was helping people of the area. It makes one feel good because you are sharing your abilities along with theirs in building something better for them. You also get to see a beautiful country and a different way of life.

Lake Como Walk

Straddling Lombardy and Piedmont, the great lakes of northern Italy have been a popular holiday destination since Roman times, evidenced by the array of lavish villas and sumptuous gardens which line the shores. Away from the affluent holiday centres is a feast of walking trails exploring the forested valleys, mountain tops and traditional villages which have retained their unique character. The old tracks which cross the mountains on the west side of Lake Como, used even today by the local people to reach the alpine pastures called 'Monti' ('Munt' in the local dialect) have been transformed into a series of way marked trails offering exceptional views. This program takes in the highlights of Lake Como within a flexible framework with a selection of walks of varying lengths and difficulty to choose from along the Monti Lariani (Lario being the ancient name of Lake Como). With accommodation in a small family run hotel there is ample opportunity to experience the excellent regional cuisine allowing a complete appreciation of the area.
