"You sail with humility every time, with open eyes. Nothing is clear"  Captain Etienne Garcia, Le Boreal

The polar Arctic, the polar opposite of the Antarctic,  the differences might surprise you.

Check out this article by Arnie Weissmann with Travel Weekly about his Abercrombie & Kent trip through the Svalbard archipelago above the Arctic Circle

"The full Sprectrum of travel experiences reflects the wide range of human desire and longing, from simple rest and relaxation to potentially life-changing, revelatory epiphanies. An Arctic trip certainly has the potential for procuding the latter"  Arnie Weissmann

A long time ago when film had to be loaded into large heavy metal cameras, J.C. Bark studied the great photographers and thought she’d become the next Dorothea Lange, but when she reckoned all the pitfalls that come with success; like jealousy, money, fame and hard work, she decided to pursue a simpler vocation. The travel business seemed a natural since she already loved to travel, how hard could it be?


By the time she realized that becoming a Travel Agent involved actual work she was hooked. Since then, she sold travel, taught travel and managed travel in Kansas City, Nashville and Tucson, (where she drank her fair share of tequila hobnobbing with Caballeros).


Back in Nashville with Belle Meade Vacations she's arranging amazing, life changing travel adventures for her clients.


Rumors that she was passing herself off as a Tibetan Faith Healer at Base Camp are completely unfounded. She still follows the advice she received from a Lebanese street musician at midnight in Cuzco many years ago, “before climbing mountain finish you cognac”.
