The newly launched I.N.D.Y. Travel Society for Women is a unique small group travel organization designed to enable women of all ages and backgrounds, from all cultures and walks of life, to travel no matter what age or life has thrown at them.
The Society’s founder, Lizzy McCartney, explains that the acronym I.N.D.Y. represents “I’m Not Dead Yet” and that I.N.D.Y. trips differ from others because they have only 10 female participants on each tour.
The tours include two escorts from the USA in addition to a group leader at the destination abroad. Lizzy added, “Some women are able to move more quickly than others, and some may not be able to participate in every activity. On I.N.D.Y. tours no participant has to feel that she is holding anyone back, nor does she have to push herself beyond her physical limits. If an activity is too difficult there is no pressure to participate.
One escort stays with those who find walking or climbing a challenge and move more slowly – people like me.
The other accompanies those participants who enjoy a brisk pace or can leap tall buildings with a single bound”, Lizzy joked. “In the evenings we also find that there are those who prefer to return to the hotel earlier than others. It’s nice to have one escort who will accompany those who want to return to the hotel earlier and another who enjoys staying out with the night owls.
The extra escort allows us to better meet everyone’s needs throughout the trip.” Our goal is to get every woman to consider traveling, especially those who may have thought that their traveling days were over. To keep I.N.D.Y. adventures accessible pricewise we try to keep the costs down without sacrificing quality or comfort. Safety is always our number one concern.
Explore Southern Italy runs from September 28-October 7, 2016 and incorporates a very unique itinerary focusing on Italy’s Puglia region. The ten day program includes overnights in Amalfi, Trani, Matera, Alberobello, Lecce and Bari. The tour cost is $1926 based on a twin share room.
The cost of airfare will be separate and every effort will be made to allow participants to travel together with the escorts from the gateway city in the USA. A group flight was not blocked in order to allow participants to plan pre- or post-tour travel in Italy if they so wish.
Fire, Ice and Northern Lights, Iceland, departs the USA on November 7 and returns November 13. The tour includes escorted round trip flights from Boston and costs $2385 based on a twin share room. In addition to overnights in Reyjkavik, the tour features 3 overnights outside the city where Northern Lights viewing is best. Also included are a glacier walk, a variety of meals and visits to Southern Iceland’s most stunning sites by private vehicle with a local tour leader as well as the tour escorts.
Other trips for 2016 are in the works.
