Riveria Maya, Mexico: Jan. 24-30, 2016

Back by popular demand, we're offering this trip again in 2016. 

Get away this winter, head someplace warm and enjoy time with fellow Ichabods at the Grand Palladium Riviera Resort & Spa located 50 miles south of Cancun on Riviera Maya.  Located right on the beach amidst the sugary-white sands and crystal-clear waters of the Mexican Caribbean, this superior all-inclusive retreat appeals to spa-lovers, singles, couples and families.  Enjoy 13 dining options, 25 bars, 9 swimming pools and much more.  Price is only $1,585 per person double occupancy and includes non-stop chartered flight from Kansas City to Cancun (other departure cities available, pricing may vary), airport/resort shuttle, junior suite accommodations, all food and beverage at the resort and roundtrip private motor coach transportation from the Washburn campus to the Kansas City airport. 

It’s just a three hour flight from Kansas City to Cancun.  You’ll have a suntan before sundown!

We sold out this trip last February, taking 150 Ichabods and friends.  It was an absolute BLAST!  If you're interested in going or learning more about the trip, view the brochure and registration form.

Germany, Austria, Switzerland ... and a little bit of Italy:
May 22-June 1, 2016

Join us for what will undoubtedly be another wonderful trip.  We're headed to Germany, Austria and Switzerland ... and a morning on Lake Como in Italy.  We'll spend two nights each in Munich, Zermatt and Lucerne and one night each in Innsbruck, St. Moritz and Lugano. Along the way, we'll also visit the nearby cities of Salzburg, Oberammagau, Fussen and Como.

Cost is $3,775 per person (double occupancy) and includes airfare, hotel, tours, eight breakfasts, one lunch and two dinners. View the brochure and registration form.Call our travel agent to save your spot, 1-800-444-4248. 

Cuba: Fall, 2016

We  plan to schedule an alumni trip to Cuba next fall ... likely in October or November. The trip will include visits to Havana, Cienfuegos, Trinidad and Santa Clara. Once the dates are finalized, we'll begin promoting the trip. In the meantime, if you have any interest in traveling with us to Cuba, please contact Susie Hoffmann. Although the price has yet to be determined, it will be in the neighborhood of $5,800 per person (double occupancy) which will include round trip airfare between Miami and Havana, hotels, tours and most meals.

Although diplomatic relations are changing between the U.S. and Cuba, open travel between the two countries is still restricted. Our travel agent holds a People-to-People license from the U.S. Department of the Treasury, Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC), authorizing registered travelers on this educational exchange program to visit Cuba.
