Boise State alumni and friends can take advantage of a fantastic travel benefit through the Boise State Alumni Association. And this year, we’re going places! (See the itineraries below).
I’ve been traveling with our travel program partner, AHI Travel, since 1997. The first time I went to Europe was with AHI and I’ve been with the company to Rome, Florence, Venice, the Italian Riviera, Paris, Prague, Budapest and Greece. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed the opportunities to see the world, meet new people, and share experiences with familiar faces. And I’ve relished AHI’s outstanding service. No detail is left unattended. AHI’s excursions provide the security, ease and value of group travel with plenty of opportunities to explore on one’s own.
This year, I’m going to Spain and would love for you to join me. AHI trips have become a favorite Simic family activity — my mother is coming with me on this excursion and I’d love for her to meet fellow Bronco friends and alumni! Barcelona and San Sebastian are two of the most beautiful and unique cities in Spain. Together, with fellow Broncos, we’ll explore the history of Catalonia, Gaudi architecture, the Penedes wine country, Pamplona and Bilbao’s Guggenheim Museum. The journey also immerses us in the culture and food of the Basques, whose culture is well established in the Boise community.
This tour features a strong educational component to foster a deeper understanding of diverse cultures and natural phenomena by putting travelers in touch with local people and cultures. You don’t have to be a Boise State graduate to join us — just have a Bronco sense of adventure.
The trip dates are September 25 – October 4, 2016. Just long enough to relax and explore, but not so long that you don’t want to return! Please make your arrangements soon, to facilitate planning.
The Alumni Relations staff (208-426-1698) and I are happy to answer any questions you might have.
I hope to see you in Spain. Go Broncos!!
