Traveling to Russia with the Joyce was (forgive the cliche), a dream come true and more. Seeing ballet on both the magnificent and storied Mariinsky and Bolshoi theaters would have been enough, but there was so much more history and culture — and cuisine. All was expertly guided by the fantastic team at The Joyce, complete with a Russian translator. The Grand Hotel Europa in St. Petersburg had become one of my top favorite hotels in the world. For my husband and me, the experience was an enriching intellectual experience as well as a whole lot of fun!

The Joyce Theater trip to Indochina was the perfect combination of urban chaos, rural beauty, wonderful waterways, heartbreaking history, peaceful people and spiritual awakening. Laos, Vietnam and Cambodia’s rich stories were conveyed superbly by Joyce Trustee Richard Ablon and an excellent collection of local guides. It was our third superlative Joyce trip. Heartfelt Thanks.

It was a trip that will stay with me for a lifetime. Traveling with The Joyce was especially wonderful as we were exposed to Cubans and Cuban dance in a way which otherwise would not have been possible.
