We know it's only April, but if you close your eyes and imagine a German holiday market right now we almost bet you can smell the cinnamon, orange, and clove and see the sparkling lights glistening off the Rhine River. Let the Traveling Cyclones and Alumni Holidays International take you there this Nov. 27-Dec. 8. For many people visiting the Christkindlmarkts is a dream, but scheduling a trip overseas during the holidays is a difficult reality. This year, you should just do it. Resolve to save the travel planning to us and just carve out some time to get your holiday shopping done in the greatest possible spot. Call Shellie Andersen (L)(’88 marketing) toll-free at (877) 478-2586 or visit our Traveling Cyclones website to learn more about this upcoming adventure.
