Important note about consumption of alcohol on this journey:
The main purpose for this journey is to build bridges and understanding between people and groups of a variety of cultural and religious backgrounds. As such, our time in Spain and Turkey will be an “alcohol-free” experience. This is to show respect of the values of our Islamic guests as well as those we visit. We ask that all travelers show humility in this regard. If you still would like an alcoholic beverage here and there, we ask that you please keep it to your own room in your free time, or when you are having a meal away from the group and our scheduled itinerary. Thank you for understanding.
