2012

Never before has a date in history been so significant to so many cultures., so many religions, scientists and governments. 2012 is an epic adventure about a global cataclysm that brings an end to the world and tells of the heroic struggle of the survivors.

 

The Solution

 20 days and 12 countries….the race is on for this electrifying journey around the world!

Start off in Amsterdam perhaps with its vibrant nightlife and miles of picturesque canals.

Take the train into Brussels, the centre of European government but also home to fabulous architecture and delicious chocolate.

Onto Paris where there’s so much to do but so little time, no matter how long you stay.

Spain beckons and the colourful city of Madrid, which really comes to life after dark.

Bella Italia and Roma is the next stop, 2 days can be spent walking through the emerald city and all the jewels it has to offer.

There’s a final European destination before the voyage heads to Asia… Helsinki, one of the design capitals of the world and an exciting mix of eastern and western cultures.

Bangkok is the Asian gateway on this trip.  Exotic, busy, cultural and spiritual, no expression really sums up this enticing city. Whether it’s temples or tantalising food the experience is not to be missed.

From the rush and bustle of Thailand, arrive in Singapore and the calm and refinement this modern metropolis. Try a Singapore Sling in Raffles bar or the night safari at the famous zoo.  

A city that never seems to sleep, that’s Hong Kong. With an eclectic mix of British Colonial and modern Chinese every activity is steeped in tradition.  A sail across the  harbour or  a tram to the top of Victoria Peak are just two highlights.

Tokyo rounds off the Far East tour, another fascinating mixture of history and 21st Century innovation. The Imperial Palace or the night life of Ropongi, such variation in one place!

Hooray for Hollywood and the movie capital of the world – Los Angeles. Choose from Beverly Hills, Santa Monica, shopping, sight seeing or fine dining.  If LA does not have it then it is yet to be invented.

Journey’s end is Toronto before the flight home.  Survey this thriving city from atop the CN Tower, the world’s highest observation deck. It’s the perfect place from which to look back on the countries and adventures that have taken 20 days.

Experience all the city has to offer, from an insider’s guide to Mardi Gras, to living like a both a city princess and a swamp frog, all packed into a fantastic family adventure to New Orleans.
