Big shout out to Backroads Trip Leader Kate Kogler who just led her 50th trip! With a million dollar smile and the energy and wit to match, we're so lucky to have her on our team. :) She has led Backroads tours in Vermont, Quebec, the San Juan Islands, Santa Barbara, Utah, Hawaii and more. Our guests can't say enough about her - "upbeat, charming, helpful, and full of information...Kate's leadership skills and charisma are top notch." (Amy Sohnen, Palm Springs Walking Trip) Thanks for bringing your awesome personality and skills to the Backroads Family Kate! Here's to 50 more... https://www.backroads.com/leaders/ldrprofiles.htm?p=D358

Congratulations to Trip Leader Jenna Smith for leading her 50th trip!! Jenna's 50th was our Palm Springs & Joshua Tree trip but she has led Backroads tours in Alaska, Croatia, Hawaii, England and beyond. Jenna is truly wonderful and our guests say it best: "I just came back from my first Backroads trip and am still glowing...to have spent four days hiking in a beautiful place with excellent new friends was unforgettable. I realize that what made it over-the-top extraordinary were the tour leaders...I was blown away by Jenna's warmth, her wit, her in depth knowledge of the area, her ability to instantly create a group of friends from strangers. Jenna is a beautiful person, inside and out, and, together with her co-leaders, changed my life." - Judy Weinstein, Granby CT. We're so lucky to have you Jenna, thanks for all you do!

The Michelin Guide has just released their 2017 list of restaurants that have earned their coveted Michelin stars. We're proud to see how many of the restaurants we visit on our trips are on this prestigious list! We're particularly proud of the Auberge de l'Ill, featured on our wonderful Champagne & Alsace Bike Tour, for their 50th consecutive year of three Michelin stars! C'est magnifique! Cheers to the Auberge de l'Ill and to all of the magnificent dining experiences to be had on Backroads trips around the world. https://www.backroads.com/trips/BASI-9/champagne-alsace-biking-tour?p=D358

Our next one hasn't been officially announced yet but here's a clue: It's a very long way from New Zealand.
