Readers’ Finds: Another Top Adventure Outfitter

I’m surprised that Zegrahm & Eco Expeditions (14-day tours from $6,980) wasn’t listed as one of your “World’s Top Adventure Trips.” With Zegrahm I circumnavigated the Black Sea and explored Melanesia by snorkeling from Fiji to New Guinea—the two best trips of my life. —Karen Carlson, Corona Del Mar, Calif.

Cozy B&B on the California Coast

My husband and I recently took a road trip from San Francisco to Mendocino. Late one night, we arrived at the Agate Cove Inn (doubles from $179, breakfast included), with 10 cozy cabins on a bluff overlooking the Pacific. Upon waking, we found spectacular ocean views from every window in our room. One of our most lasting memories of the weekend was of watching the sun descend into the water from the front lawn. It was a magical ending point to an amazing journey. We will definitely return. —Wendy Zacuto, Playa Del Rey, Calif.

T+L Asks: If You Were Offered an All-Expenses-Paid Trip Anywhere in the World, Where Would You Go—and Why?

These are just a few of the responses posted on our Facebook wall (facebook.com/TravelandLeisure) and tweeted to us (@TravlandLeisure).

Tokyo, for the contrasts: sakura-tree contemplation and cutting-edge technology, Shinkansen rides and Fuji trekking, tea ceremonies and fugu sashi, shodo calligraphy and Superflat postmodern art. —Carlos Felipe Rodríguez Velázquez, Puebla, Mexico

Let’s pretend the eastern rim of Africa is just one place: wine country in Cape Town, safari in Kenya, ancient rock cathedrals in Lalibela, Ethiopia, and a luxury cruise up the Nile to Cairo. —Lynn Pitts, New York, N.Y.

The original Orient-Express route from Istanbul to Paris, to get the East-meets-West experience. And then I’d return home on the Concorde. It no longer exists, but it’s still a dream. —Gabriella Berenyi Crosby, Pasadena, Calif.

With UNICEF, wherever needed, to help disadvantaged children around the world. —Evelyn Spencer, Philadelphia, Pa.

The island of Capri. Beautiful seascape, good food and wine, handmade sandals, gorgeous scenery. Bellissima!Gina Feddersen, via Facebook

A two-week family fishing trip along the coasts of British Columbia and southern Alaska, moving between lodges by floatplane. —John Thornberry, Wichita, Kans.

Space. I’d love to experience weightlessness and to see planet Earth from up above. —Dan Sakaue, Renton, Wash.
