Join Bobbi and Lee for a luxury tour of Iceland with Focus on Nature.
Iceland is truly the land of fire and ice—one of the reasons it was used for many of the locations in the hit HBO series “The Game of Thrones!” Iceland reaches down into your soul and touches you in a profound and subtle way. There is a quiet drama besides the spectacular glaciers, mountain, and seashore. The soft green cliffs and fields that stretch to the water are speckled with sheep and the multitude of waterfalls adds to the visual delight. This is pristine and primal Earth, fueled by geothermal and absolutely pure water, and is a reminder of the strength and beauty of the planet.
Join Bobbi Lane & Lee Varis on an amazing adventure in the land of ancient temples and spectacular landscapes

With a focus on the culture, people, arts and sights of Myanmar, we will capture images of fairy-tale pagodas, fascinating architecture and lively street life. For those that enjoy landscape photography, and architecture this trip is ideal. Those interested in Asian culture will be immersed in the spiritual aspects of Myanmar. The hot air balloon ride will be a once in a life time event.
January is an ideal time of the year to visit this area, with near perfect weather. This trip is exciting, exotic and fun. .
