Hi Tina, I am Chief Marketing & Guest Satisfaction Officer here at CRE and I've been helping Michael with his new blog. I've worked for the company for 23 years. You family trips every summer sound wonderful. I can certainly appreciate why you want to get as much as you can in before your teenagers leave home. I am figuring that I will get one maybe two more vacations with my two teenagers before they are off doing their own thing. :( You mentioned that you are considering Australia, Galapagos and Vietnam for next summer. For Galapagos we have some wonderful friends that I haven't communicated with in awhile that have an outstanding operation. I will email them today and get you a name and email for a contact person. For Australia I'll have to do some research, but we have some ideas and will be back to you shortly. For Southeast Asia we highly recommend Trails of Indochina, I've pasted in the contact information for Vinh Lam, your contact there.

Hi Janet, I am Chief Marketing & Guest Satisfaction Officer here at CRE. Michael has asked me to pitch in with the blog. I am delighted to hear that you had such a good time in Costa Rica last March. I see that you are interested in contacts for travel to Africa, India and Southeast Asia. I am working on getting contacts for each area, but I wanted to send you what I have so far. For Africa, we have three companies. Trans Africa Safaris we have known for years, they are an excellent company and Michael has been in contact with them about the blog and they know that they may be contacted by some of you. The contact information for them is: Trans Africa Safaris Contact: Michelle Meyer, Tours Manager Email: email@example.com Web: http://www.transafricasafaris.com Phone: +27-21-713 2063. We have another two companies in Africa that you may want to consider. One is &Beyond, we have very close relationship with the former managing directors, Steve & Nicky Fitzgerald, but they are no longer with the company. I have made contact with &Beyond and am waiting for a contact to give you. I personally travelled with them, my two teenagers and I went to Cape Town, Joburg, Phinda Game Reserve, Ngala Game Reseverve, the Matetsi Game Reserve in Zimbabwe and Victoria Falls. If you would like any input from me, I would be happy to provide details. The other company that has come up on this blog for Africa is The Africa Adventure Company. I have also made contact with them and hope to speak to their US rep on the phone soon. As soon as I have a green light I’ll let you know. For Southeast Asia, I spoke yesterday with Vinh from Trails of Indochina. We’ve known them for years as we participate in some of the same industry events. If you are interested in speaking to him, his contact information is: TRAILS OF INDOCHINA Limited Contact: Mr. Vinh Lam (US Representative) Email: firstname.lastname@example.org Website: http://www.trailsofindochina.com 9092 McBride River Ave Fountain Valley, CA 92708-6464 Tel:1- 800 835 1376 (West Coast) Fax:1- 714 908 1844 You also asked about India. I’ve been on the phone and email with Amber Tours, but I still have not been able to have a full conversation. The time difference, distance and the holidays are making it a bit tricky. As soon as I have something more concrete I’ll let you know. In the meantime, as we say here in Costa Rica… Felices Fiestas
