In June 2015, a few intrepid travelers will depart for a Sandia Prep excursion to Asia.  The trip will include sites in Japan and Bhutan.  Space will be limited to no more than 15 people.    

Participants will visit Tokyo and Kyoto; travel on the Shinkansen (bullet train); and fly to Bhutan for a 10-day adventure of service, rafting, and a visit to the newly opened park dedicated to Bengal tigers.

Itinerary and details are available.  Trip costs will be approximately $4,200 per person all-inclusive. (Trip costs are determined primarily by the cost of air travel; final costs may vary based on changes in airfare.)
