Festive Greetings from Caledonia Worldwide

Well, here we are at the end of a pretty strange year all round, one that none of us expected at all and which has affected every single person to some extent.  This year has shown us that small kindnesses count more than ever, time spent with those you love is so, so precious and that we can never, ever take anything for granted.

With the recent positive news of vaccines, we are keeping our heads up and are very much looking forward to being able to get back to organising trips, supporting our overseas suppliers and partners (particularly in Cuba) and to finding our feet again.

Our heartfelt wishes for a happy and peaceful festive season, and here’s to recovery for everyone around us.  Goodness knows, we all need something to look forward to and as soon as we are able to start running our Cuba dance holidays, hiking trips in national parks, bespoke tours exploring historic places, cycle trips and language courses in Europe and Latin America we will let you know…yes, all of these and more will come round again!

In the meantime, keep healthy, stay positive and hope to hear from you in the New Year.  Merry Christmas and a happy Hogmanay!
