I have featured other travel sites in past months that feature places to go off the usual tourist destinations. Here is another group that offers some trips to unusual places as well as some to more common locations. For example, Spiritual Quest Journeys presently has trips scheduled to Namibia (Desert Sands and Crystal Journey), Zambia (Walk on the Wild Side) and South Africa (Miracles, Magic and Manifestation). Then there are trips to Ireland (Land of Leprechauns and Celtic Magic) and Malta (Journey to the Goddess), more usual places but with a definite spiritual twist. I must say they have a good text writer as even the headlines make you want to read more. Here are a few of the descriptions.

The twelve tour leaders listed are a eclectic group seemingly very competent judging by the 25 years this company has been operating and from the testimonials. Certainly I would love to join the group presently in England at the site of the crop circles in Wiltshire, England or try a yoga, walking and meditation safari in Zambia. I like the addition of the tailor made tours and the retreats and spas. It seems they have something for everyone who wishes to explore alternative spirituality. Not sure the Christians or Muslims would benefit from these tours.
The website is very well organized and easy to navigate: http://www.spiritualquestjourneys.com The trips are reasonably priced in both Euros and US dollars but of course does not include air fare. Check it out and let me know if you choose one of these trips. Leave a comment below or send an e-mail message to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
