Travel Abroad Opportunity


Ever dreamed about seeing the Roman coliseum, throwing a coin into the Trevi fountain or seeing the Sistine Chapel with your own eyes?  Ever wanted to visit the ancient ruins of Pompeii or to look out over Naples bay from the top of Mt. Vesuvius?  Ever wished you could walk the same streets that St. Paul walked when preaching to the Athenians, or sitting in the amphitheater in Ephesus where he spoke to the citizens?  Ever had a cruise to the Greek islands of Mykonos, Patmos or Santorini on your ‘bucket list’ of places to visit?

Well, here’s your opportunity!  Chris Dover, TWC chaplain, is planning a 13-day tour of all of these places (and more!) May 15 – 27, 2013.  This tour begins in Rome, travelling to the historic sites in Florence, Mt. Vesuvius, Sorrento, Pompeii, Delphi and Athens, before concluding with a 3-day cruise, with ports of call in Mykonos, Kusadasi (Ephesus), Patmos, Rhodes and Santorini. 
This trip is open to everyone (faculty, staff, students, alumni, community members, etc.) and the current price is $4047 for students and $4457 for adults.  This all-inclusive price includes everything (airfare, lodging, buses, cruise ship fees, tour director and breakfasts).  The only expenses not covered are five dinners, your lunches, souvenirs, tips and cruise ship excursions.

For more information, please contact Chris Dover at 804-241-1956 or at cdover@twcnet.edu.  Informational meetings will be held on Friday, September 7 and Tuesday, September 11 at noon in the Sullins Board Room in Sherman Hall.
