Join travelers who, in the warming April air, stroll through the historic gardens of Philadelphia. Take a road trip along Ontario’s Loyalist Parkway to explore a part of Canada’s early history. Make a journey to the Far East to visit the Forgotten Land, the first sand park in Vietnam. Don’t forget to try the local delicacies offered in every region along the way. Remember when president Obama tried ‘bun cha’ in Hanoi and made that restaurant instantly famous? Bun cha is the beautifully simple but must-try street food in Hanoi.

During the month of April, have a peaceful time with your loved ones as you gather around for Easter dinner.

I hope that this month spring is in your steps!
