Paul Sansome's group's Icelandic Adventure

Whilst everyone else was fed up up with hearing about the Icelandic Volcano, a group of our photographers have been preparing for a trip of a lifetime - one where they are likely to experience Iceland like no-one has seen it before.

On their seven night trip around the southern part of the Island, the photographers saw stunning waterfalls, hot springs, geysers, seascapes and local wildlife.

The trip was so successful, that we hope to return in 2011 and perhaps even include a second trip to the Northern part of the Island, where we may be lucky enough to witness Aurora Borealis !

AA @ Patchings Art Festival 2010

From 10th - 13th June, Linda attended Patchings’ Art Craft and Design Festival, in Calverton, Nottinghamshire for the first time.

What a great chance we had to introduce our holidays and our new name to so many avid painters and artists. With over 150 exhibitors who were all demonstrating, exhibiting and selling their work this was a really inspirational and enjoyable event. Plus we had a chance to meet some of our existing and potential clients.

Brian Smith demonstrated on the stall on one day showing the calibre of tutors that we have working for us and it also gave us an opportunity to find one or two new tutors to run our 2011 holidays.

Leigh Preston leads his first group to stunning Santorini

This is a truly unique place - set in the Blue Aegean sea with an amazing Island community build on the edge of a Volcanic Caldera. With it's special light, vernacular architecture and wonderful Greek food, local culture and truly iconic photography locations, what more could you ask for.

By all accounts, with top class tuition and aided by local guide Takis, who himself was full of character and demonstrated the kind of excellent local knowledge that you have come to expect from AA staff, a memorable time was had by all, a highlight being a lunchtime barbecue with local school children at one of the beachside villages.

The holiday was so well received that we plan to do it all again in 2011 - but places will be limited, so if you are interested, please register your interest now by calling 01453 823328.
