Intercultural Connections Announces an Insider's Tour of Spain for Adventurous Travelers Who Want to See Famous Sites this July in a New and Different Way

March 14, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Travel News
European-based Intercultural Connections with a stateside branch office in St. Mary's, WV, announced today a unique tour of Northern Spain that pairs two distinct venues, the Running of the Bulls in Pamplona and the Centuries-Old Pilgrimage Route of Saint James. The nearly two-week land tour starts with a literary walkabout in Madrid on July 1 and dinner at Europe's oldest restaurant. Travelers can return to Madrid on July 13 with many and varied stops along the way.

Travelers interested in cultural and educational experiences abroad can visit the Rioja wine counry, overnight in historic paradors, hike a sacred trail in the Pyrenees, fish the famous Irati River, watch the running of the bulls in Pamplona, and visit the Guggenheim Museum designed by Frank Gehry.

According to Diane Buck, a university professor and president of Intercultural Connections, "Spain has something for everyone. I've planned a special, flexible tour for this July to introduce participants to both local flavor and famous events and sites." She adds, "Putting Pamplona and the Pilgrimage Route of Saint James into the same package was a challenge, but it has an appeal that's hard to beat."

Carol Sauka, a professional writer and speaker, is an alumna of last year's tour to Pamplona. She is acting as a Consultant to Intercultural Connections during the 2007 season.
