Meet The Czechmates!

Ann Wen, 7 time monsooner who first came along for Luxembourg, Australia, New Zealand, Oman, Qatar and Kuwait, asked if I would be free after my Dec 27-Jan 16 trip to the least visited countries in the world. Since she’s never let me down, how could I? For “If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.”

Within 24 hours we decided on Prague and a few days later, a Budapest extension. Within a week the following monsooners all signed up (most of them, like Ann, coming for their second or third trip with us!). And we still have room!
