Jimmy and Eunice Tecklenburg were our very first clients. They visited California at a time when we were still operating our California vacation planning business, but before we had ever actually enjoyed the experience of showing a client the great things in our state in person. I love relating the story of how they went from vacation planning clients to one of our most treasured memories and the impetus for an entirely new direction for our business.

The youth program at the Bruton Parish Episcopal Churgh in Williamsburg, Virginia sponsors a trip each year called "Journey to Adulthood" . For their 2006 trip, we focused on the historic missions of California, venturing off into other explorations (Hearst Castle, whale watching, the Hard Rock Cafe in Hollywood) as it made sense to their youth coordinator and pastor.
