Gail Speckmann, artist, photographer, writer/poet, and music lyricist, brings a full artistic perspective as your guide in her Sights and Sounds Tours. This highly integrated approach will broaden and deepen your travel experience.
Gail has led 11 European tours over the years including ngland, Scotland, Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg, France, Germany, Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland
as well as including parts of Belgium & France. Each day will include a focus idea to help enhance composition for your photography. Gail will introduce you to the work of some of the past & contemporary visual artists in the destination.
Daily, we will also experience words and sounds pertaining to particular poets/writers and musicians (contemporary and past) from these countries. These “voices” will help us immerse fully into the rhythms of a particular area, but they also strike a universal chord.
Prior to the tour a notebook will be provided to help acquaint you with what we will cover. A daily journal may be kept by volunteers and shared after the tour to help fill out your memories.
Our professional travel guide will provide us with interesting history and stories of the areas where we will visit. Time is allowed for personal enjoyment and exploration within these tours as well.
