If you entered the Epic Mediterranean Cruise Promotion last month and you are newly subscribed, a big welcome to Wildiaries. We specialise in nature-based travel and stories about wildlife and experiences.
Congratulations to K Harvey of Tighes Hill NSW who won the prize and will be travelling care of Viking Cruises and our partners.
Also, we have some articles to enjoy. Tim Grey travels in Rajasthan and we introduce you to SeaCloud, a legendary ship that was once pirated by a 26-year-old women, has served in world wars and housed both billionaires and dictators! Find out how you could join it or one of its more modern sister ships taking tourists on romantic yesteryear voyages through the Caribbean and Mediterranean.
As always, thanks for reading.
