Highlights from the 1997 “Celtic Capers” Tour

For sixteen days, 73 ITHFers and their partners explored England, Wales, Ireland, Northern Ireland and Scotland - from seas to mountains, from humble abodes to historic castles, from lonely canal walks to glorious gardens.For sixteen days, 73 ITHFers and their partners explored England, Wales, Ireland, Northern Ireland and Scotland - from seas to mountains, from humble abodes to historic castles, from lonely canal walks to glorious gardens.

Tour members from Australia, New Zealand, the U.S., Canada, Mexico, Chile and others provided as much diversity and cultural sharing on the coaches as we encountered with the people there.

Not only was it introduction to an extraordinary land, it was excellent fun and fellowship - searching for the Leprechauns, hanging out in the pubs, snooping through the castles, balancing on the edge of the cliffs, etc.

Highlights from the 1995 “Heart of Europe” Tour

This second adventure for ITHFers commenced in Vienna with the sights and sounds of Austria.

We continued down the Danube to Budapest, across the plains of Hungary to Switzerland, and to magnificent Zermatt and the Matterhorn - sights and experiences unmatched anywhere in the world.

After convention on the Riviera in Nice our group continued through southern France and celebrated the end of an extraordinary time together in Paris with a marvelous dinner.

Highlights from the 1993 “Down Under” Tour of Australia

Because of its success, this first travel adventure not only set a high standard for future excursions, it resulted in the organization's name being changed to include the function of travel.

Throughout Australia, we experienced as much cultural diversity and sharing between ourselves on tour as we did between us and our gracious hosts there.

Ron Pearce and Marilyn made certain that all ITHFers on tour not only saw the sights from the bus, boat, plane, camel, train, etc., but that they saw the "real Australia" from inside the homes of the Rotarians and their families there.
