Follow REX beyond the Ordinary:
   
Here are fifty of Rex's truly unforgettable travel moments - some could happen to you on any trip, others are unusual and well beyond the ordinary.

If he and his wife, Barbara, have done these unusual ones, why can't you? All you need is:
          an inquisitive and open mind,
          reasonably good health,
          some money and available time,
          an interest in history, culture, ecology, and/or nature,
                    (actually, ANY interest: birds, scuba diving, gourmet cookery, collecting
                    antique snuff boxes, classic cars, golf, mountain climbing, World War I,
                    cross country skiing, etc. etc.)

Many of these experiences we have enjoyed on our own. In most cases this need not be necessary as there are select cruises and group tours that will fill the bill. Just contact REX and e-mail him that you also want to enjoy the same experience as under number ???:
