Germany, Austria, Switzerland ... and a little bit of Italy:

May 22-June 1, 2016

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: Oct. 3-11, 2016

As diplomatic relations between Cuba and the U.S. continue to develop, now is the perfect time to experience this long-isolated nation on the verge of great transformation. Join us on an extraordinary people-to-people exchange, specially designed to reveal the authentic spirit and culture of Cuba—where 1950s-era automobiles still roll past magnificent Spanish colonial buildings.  Together we’ll encounter the true heart and soul of this colorful country by engaging with the diverse, inspiring people who call it home. 

Cost per person is $5,499 double occupancy and includes one night in Miami, round-trip charter flight between Miami and Havana, seven nights’ accommodations: five nights in Havana, two nights in Sancti Spiritus, 19 meals, full schedule of educational activities and sight-seeing, private English-speaking national guide, required Cuban travel insurance and more. For additional information contact Susie Hoffmann at susie@washburn.edu or visit our travel agent's website for all the details and to print a registration form.  Space is very limited and will sell out quickly.  A second departure date of Oct. 13-21, 2016 is also available.

Playa del Carmen, Mexico: Jan. 22–28, 2017

Back by popular demand, we're headed back to Mexico for the fourth year in a row.  Get away this winter, head someplace warm and enjoy time with fellow Ichabods at the Sandos Playacar Beach Resort located at the south end of Playa del Carmen approximately 20 miles south of Cancun in the 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.  It’s just a three hour flight from Kansas City to Cancun.  You’ll have a suntan before sundown! 

We've reserved the entire airplane from Kansas City for this chartered flight.  Let's fill it with Ichabods and friends!  Complimentary bar service onboard.  Details will be finalized in early June.  Tentative cost will likely be in the neighborhood of $1,600 per person double occupancy.  For additional information contact Susie Hoffmann at susie@washburn.edu.  We've been averaging 100+ passengers on this trip.  It's great fun.  Invite your family and friends.

The trip includes

  • Private motorcoach transportation from the Washburn campus to the Kansas City airport and return
  • Chartered, non-stop, three hour flight between Kansas City to Cancun (other departure cities available, pricing may vary)
