Destination Dalmatian Riviera | ©thepalladiantraveler.comGreat news! The band is back and going out on the road again.

Uh, the “band of merry media,” that is.

We’re 18 intrepid travel writers and photographers invited by Insight Vacations to experience the sights, sounds and savors of the Dalmatian Riviera, where Bosnia embraces Croatia along the eastern Adriatic Coast, and where once upon a time the Most Serene Republic of Venice flexed its maritime muscle.

For eight days, we’ll be touring in style aboard one of Insights’ sleek motor coaches — with business-class legroom seating, WIFI and plenty of bottled water — as our premium-escorted itinerary takes us to Sarajevo, Jablanika, Mostar and the Stari Most bridge, Split, Ston and the Great Wall of Croatia, the Pelješac Peninsula, Orebic, Korčula — where celebrated merchant globetrotter Marco Polo is rumored to have been born — and Dubrovnik, “paradise on earth,” according to George Bernard Shaw.

Destination Dalmatian Riviera | ©thepalladiantraveler.comAlong the way, we’ll eat our fair share of authentic regional dishes — like grilled ćevapi (minced meat sausages) and tufahija (walnut-stuffed poached apples) — and sample superlative wines, including Plavac Mali, a robust red, during a variety of delectable dining events; local historians will guide us through some of the region’s most incredible relics, including Roman Emperor Diocletian’s massive palace; and, we’ll spend restful nights in five-star hotels. Not too shabby for band members, right?

Tom traded his hometown St. Louis Cardinals' baseball cap in the United States for a Borsalino and he now hangs his "capello" in the Puglia region of southeastern Italy. A veteran print and broadcast journalist, with well-worn passports that have got him into and out of 50 countries and counting, Tom fell in love with the "Bel Paese" years ago. As he notes, "I'm inspired by the beauty I find in all things that are very, very old, and reliving history, or at least meandering along cobblestone streets that were laid down over a thousand years ago and just looking up and marveling at what occupies the space still today, really gets my 'Vespa' running." Tom has a good eye behind the lens and is a graphic storyteller, but he'll let you decide as he keeps his camera batteries fully charged and the posts flowing from his creative hideaway in the hills overlooking Ostuni. You can also follow his dispatches along the cobblestone via TravelingBoy.com.
