USTOA Travel Together Overview of South Africa This stunning country needs no introduction: unparalelled game reserves, a burgeoning food scene, incredible cities and a remarkable history--South Africa is a transportive place that has to be visited to be believed.
Not only is the wine superb, the food here is a marvel in it's own right. Much of the produce is grown in Wente gardens, tended by Dianne, the hardworking, organic gardener. Chef Matt Greco works wonders from lunch, brunch or dinner. He uses the local riches of the Livermore Valley to create mouthwatering appetizers, like the Lamb Pastrami, to succulent vegetable side dishes, to wine-fed cattle and house-cured salamis. The homemade breads and desserts are top notch and the wine is the icing on the food experience here. Special interviews with Chef Matt Greco, Carolyn Wente, CEO, and Diane, the Wente Gardener.
USTOA Live Like a Local Seeing the polar bears in person, in their natural habitat, is nothing like I can ever describe. Our adventure with tour operator Tauck, took us up to Churchill, Manitoba—the most remote place that I've ever been. However, Polar Bears seem to find it quite easily. Our tundra vehicles kept us warm and not only did we see Polar Bears, we interacted with them. Just watch!
USTOA Live Like a Local Series You'd think the weather of Churchill would dampen your spirits, but the locals that I met there were so warm, friendly and full of life, they made the snow covered city so welcoming. I met Myrtle, a Dene storyteller who spoke of how her people came & developed Churchill and the trading routes and I also met Wally, who started the cozy Lazy Bear Lodge. Dave Daley runs a dogsledding company and I've never had a more serene experience gliding over the snow and learning how he trains his animals. These are the faces of Churchill that I won't soon forget!
USTOA Live Like a Local Series To me, the people that you meet on a trip can make a good experience, great. On a group tour it is even more important to have great guides and on our tour with Tauck, we had some of the kindest, most knowledgeable, funny & flexible guides that ensure that our trip was educational, smoothly run and most of all, FUN!
USTOA Live Like a Local Series Churchill, Manitoba is located up near the Arctic and it's only accessible by plane or train. So you might think in the winter, the food couldn't be that fresh. Actually, fresh foods are flown up daily to weekly and our tour with Tauck made sure we had the freshest greens and veggies up North. Also, the local game like elk, bison and venison as well as the arctic char are some of the world's best. Eat up to keep warm in this gorgeously chilly landscape.
