Holiday season has arrived and brought with it the dreaded winter mucky weather for us up here in the north! But for those joining us in hot and sunny South Africa, Thailand, and Costa Rica this winter it just makes the anticipation for the trip that much greater! Dan, Shane, James and I wish you all a great holiday season and look forward to traveling with you to somewhere exciting in 2018! And thanks to all of our travelers for an unforgettable 2017!

YOU CHOOSE THE NEXT DESTINATION For the second year in a row we’re letting our Detours travelers choose the next destination! We’ve narrowed it down to 6 diverse and uniquely amazing destinations who are now duking it out to be crowned the next Detours destination! Past/present Detours travelers can access the vote via our invite-only traveler’s Facebook page, or just reply to this email for the link. Cast your vote then cross your fingers!

NEWBIE OFFICE GUY It’s about time we give the monkeys running around the office a break and replace them with Shane who many of you know very well as our main Thailand trip leader! Starting January 1st, Shane and I will both be manning the office, so expect to see a new and trusted name on some emails and on the other end of the phone. Learn more about Shane on his introduction page here.
