2017 WALKING TOURS WITH DAVID WHYTE
Poetry, Myth & Music for the Soul
The West of Ireland
June 10 - 17, 2017
Join David and 35 eclectic travelers for a celebration of Ireland's celtic culture, both traditional and emerging, set on Galway Bay in County Clare; an unforgettable pilgrimage over ancient limestone and windblown shores, gathering at places of special inherited significance in both Irish history and the Irish religious imagination. Wind and tide permitting, we may visit the Aran Islands and bicycle to Dun Aengus at the very edge of the ancient Irish world.
Setting Direction for a Future Life
The English Lake District
June 30 - July 7, 2017
Take time to understand the next necessary steps of your life more closely, and to hike the beauty of the English Lake District, where Wordsworth, Coleridge and many others found inspiration among mountain, valleys spectacular lakes, stone walls and hedgerows. Our accommodations are both near a lively village (the site of David’s very favorite brewery) and next to Coniston Lake.
Harvest & Pilgrimage
The Tuscan Hills
September 5 - 12, 2017
From the first evening standing on the threshold of an ancient Etruscan tomb with the light slanting across the stone, imagining centuries of mothers, fathers and children making their lives amongst the olive groves, to the closing night’s celebration under the stars, the week in Italy is a moveable feast both literally and imaginatively; a true celebration of the senses; a shaping of the mind and the body through walking, seeing, listening and tasting.
