All of us at VBT Bicycling and Walking Vacations – here in Vermont and in our worldwide offices – share an intense passion for connecting with the world through travel. And we love to share that passion with travelers like you during our wonderful vacations. There’s nothing I love more than hearing how a conversation with a Dutch villager broadened a VBT traveler’s mind … how a beginner rider pushed himself to cycle a longer route option and felt stronger for it … or how a breathtaking vista along a walking path made someone’s spirit soar.
But we also know that many of you in our passionate community of like-minded travelers have transformative experiences during your own explorations, far from VBT’s biking and walking trails. That’s what inspired us to enhance our blog page. Here, I invite you to share highlights from both your VBT trips and your personal travel. For our part, we’ll be using this space to keep you better informed, and more enriched by our own experiences around the world.

We hope each and every blog entry will be informative to travel lovers like you, with interesting discussions that will enhance your own travel life. I hope to hear from you in our blog pages, too.
