30 Day Around the World Vacation

Buenos Aires    Rome    Cape Town    Bali    Sydney    Queenstown    Auckland    Fiji

Visiting all five continents in one 30-day trip. Fly south to Buenos Aires in Argentina and admire this gorgeous city well known for its famous Tango the world over; coupled with great cuisine, full bodied wines and beautiful people, it is not without reason that this grand city is known as the 'Paris of South America'.

Then, fly across the Atlantic to visit the eternal city of Rome - with its wonderful architecture, spectacular monuments, the Vatican and of course its glorious cuisine. Leaving Europe behind, it’s on to South Africa and beautiful Cape Town with the windswept and rugged beauty of  the Cape of Good Hope and the scenic wine country around Stellenbosch.

Later, fly East to taste the magic of the Orient being charmed by the grace and beauty of Bali: From lush green rice terraces, to exotic temples and a land of graceful music and dance - the culture of Bali will undoubtedly be fascinating.

Leaving Asia behind, head south to the Antipodes - your first stop being in Sydney, with its reputation of being one of the world's most amazing cities, with its spectacular harbor, iconic Opera House and of course unique fauna. Next, fly to Queenstown in New Zealand's South Island - the gateway to impressive fjords and striking, pristine landscapes. Later, fly to Auckland, on New Zealand's North Island.

Finally, visit the legendary Fiji Islands in the midst of the Pacific Ocean before returning home from your enviable trip around the world.

Then, you will head toward a milonga tango hall in town, a dance hall where locals go to sharpen up their skills (and maybe you'll be inspired to try some tango steps yourself!).
