New tours and cruises from Active Travel

Good Afternoon

‘M’ Day is close at hand: ‘M’ being our moving day into our brand new and larger office in Lonsdale St, Braddon. Our Open Day and Party is 05 May from 4.00 PM, and our intention is to be truly operational by then. Invite for the Party is on its way.

Last month we introduced a beautiful yacht cruise in the remote Mergui Island area of Myanmar and a sailing adventure following the Spice Route through to Borneo. In this issue we are proud to announce we are the Australian agents for a new ship on the Mekong – Mekong Prestige II giving you even more choice of dates and riverboats for your Mekong Cruises.

This months slogan – “Where Active Travel goes, the World follows”. Let us know what this means to you on our Facebook wall here or reply to this email.

Lastly we would like to wish you and your family a happy Easter.

We hope you thoroughly enjoy the long weekend and we look forward to seeing you in our new shop!
