"This was an excellent experience and quite affordable.... Staying in one location with day trips suited us perfectly, and the itinerary was varied and interesting. To me it was the perfect chance to enjoy historical sites, natural beauty, food and wine, local people, and comfortable lodgings."

Catch the Wind Tours - Farewell

Dear Drifter Sister Fans and Friends,

It has been a difficult decision, but this website will be coming down in August 2022. Drifter Sister Catch the Wind Tours will continue through 2023, with all the tours listed above. But there are some license and security expenditures coming due in August that brought me to the inevitable conclusion it was time to say goodbye to the website.

I want to thank all of my clients and those who have visited through the years and, especially, I want to thank my webmaster (and friend) Nancy for making this dream of a website come true, and for all the expertise, care, and countless hours that went into developing, updating, and maintaining it. When she offered to help me make it happen I said, “Are you sure? You know this is going to be a huge commitment well into the future.” She said okay, and has hung in there with me for 14 years. Wow. Thank you, Nancy, for everything.

Although Drifter Sister LLC will continue offering travel advice and travel insurance, it will be on another, simpler website. The Catch the Wind Tours part of Drifter Sister will be no more after 2023.

Starting this business and second ‘career’ at the age of 60 was challenging and exciting. I am so glad I made the decision to share the world with so many wonderful people.

Love and Best Wishes to All,

Ihla (a.k.a. Drifter Sister)
