Wendy Perrin’s WOW Week begins on January 22, and Myths and Mountains is in the thick of the action.  We are starting 2018 with a “bang,” as President, Dr. Antonia Neubauer has been named to Wendy Perrin’s 2018 WOW List of Trusted Travel Experts for Bhutan, Nepal and Myanmar for the 8th year!

Starting Jan. 22, you can join Myths and Mountains and participate in Wendy Perrin’s #WOWWeek on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook.  Follow these social media platforms to see each day’s topic announced. From there you can share your best travel intelligence with others!

Wendy Perrin’s WOW List of Travel Experts

Many Myths and Mountains’ travelers found us because of Wendy Perrin, whose annual WOW List remains the definitive resource for sophisticated travelers seeking the world’s best destination specialists. Wendy calls us “the most well-connected travel fixers and custom itinerary designers in the world.”  When you’re looking for somebody like us for a destination where we don’t operate, you’ll find that somebody on The WOW List.

From our inception 30 years ago, our niche has been customized travel.  We study all aspects of a country, from climate to culture and design programs around key themes. This way, each program fits each traveler’s dreams. For example, we can focus a trip on cultures and crafts, religions and pilgrimage sites. Or, we can create a program on wildlife and the environment, traditional medicine or any area you want to experience.

A Shared Passion for Travel

We are passionate about maximizing each traveler’s experience, and Wendy shares that vision. One Wendy Perrin traveler raved about her Myths and Mountains trip to Myanmar, Cambodia and Bali. She wrote:

“In all our years of travel, we’ve never experienced a more transforming and magical journey than the one Toni planned for us.  Her meticulous planning ensured that there would be no surprises… and what surprises we experienced were the serendipitous ones that happen when you allow yourself to seize the moment when it happens.”

READ Nepal Puthang Library

Giving back to the people we visit is a priority for me. It’s another reason why Myths and Mountains was selected for Wendy Perrin’s WOW list of experts. To meet our philanthropic goals, 26 years ago I founded READ Global (Rural Education and Development), a non-profit organization devoted to making villages viable places to learn, live and prosper.  READ Global creates sustainable library community centers in villages across Nepal, Bhutan and India. Today, READ Global has built over 100 centers, seeded 200 for-profit businesses, and served over 300 communities in Asia.
