Think outside the turkey...

Dear Friend,

To say "nothing is the same this year" is to state the obvious.

As a season of disrupted traditions approaches, I salute the friends who are planning unconventional Thanksgivings. Why not embrace the changes by eating Ethiopian food or grilling? Make it one to remember.

At Untours, we too are thinking creatively. As we wait for travel to resume, we are cooking up some fun alternatives, options that will likely remain among our offerings even when borders reopen.

Our Virtual Weekends are one possibility! Our premier in Portugal was a hit. As one guest said:

When we are able to travel again, I would love to do something like this to prepare for the country I am going to see. I normally do a little studying before I go, but this would be so much better.

We are excited to offer a Virtual Weekend in Spain next month. It falls in the midst of the holiday season, and we hope some of you will use it as a way to redefine gathering for the season. Why not throw in a little Flamenco and add some Spanish foods and wine to your table?

If you are not able to commit to a full weekend, there are plenty of stand-alone events to join. We can also tailor private events for your own gathering, if you would like to meet up with your loved ones on Zoom to share an expert-led wine tasting or concert or Italian cooking class.

When life gives you lemons, make lemonade, and when a pandemic leaves you with more turkey than your household can consume, make Tuscan meatballs!

Now more than ever, we are grateful you are part of the Untours family.

Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours,

The Sounds of Flamenco
It is different than the classical guitar, percussive and bright, with its stuccato succession of quick notes. Listen in on some Flamenco guitar!


Typical Tapas
Tired of your own cooking? Seek some inspiration from the Spanish and learn about the most typical tapas dishes. Here is a primer on the art of the small plate.

True Support for Survivors
In case you missed it, here's a recording of our recent conversation with Dana Donofree of AnaOno, maker of beautiful bras for women affected by breast cancer.


Enjoy your own barge

Plan a European barge cruise and drift through the beautiful villages of the UK and France. It's the perfect way to go.

Treat yourself or a loved one

Looking for a turkey alternative? Or something to spice up your holiday spread? Why not a basket of yum from Europe for you or yours?
