So many places to go, things to do, and friends to make. . . . . why don’t you join us?
More Adventures for You and Your ‘Ukulele in 2023
More than a tour, this is an experience that showcases the best modern Cuba has to offer, from the jazz clubs in Havana to private house concerts in beautiful Trinidad. In addition to music, we’ll dabble in Cuban cuisine, dance, art, and natural history…all while supporting the Cuban people. And best of all, our main “ride” is a 1948 Dodge Limo we lovingly call “Mimi.”
Hands down, this is one of the best ways to experience Europe: from the seat of a bike and the deck of a slow-moving barge. We cycle each day (or not) and meet our floating motel each afternoon where a delicious snack and aperitif awaits, followed by evenings of ‘ukulele merriment. This will be our sixth Uke, Bike, & Barge adventure, and each one seems better than the last. Can’t make it this year? No worries, we’ll be adding more in 2024.
In the spirit of “That sure was fun, let’s do it again,” we are returning to Camp Ocean Pines in Cambria, CA for yet another magical West Coast ‘Ukulele Reunion. Two full days and three nights of ukulele instruction, merriment, and mayhem. Aka “The most fun you can have with your ‘ukulele on.” And…coming back…the original Sunday morning ‘Ukulele Gospel Hour with Rick & Rhan.
Join us in 2024!
Here are just a few of the events and trips we’re already working on for 2024: Some old friends (that just keep getting better) along with some brand new adventures.
All That (Cuban) Jazz January 20 – 29, 2024
Some of our favorite sights and sounds from Cuban ‘Ukulele Rhythms have been worked into the fun and festivities of the Havana Jazz Festival. This one is not uke-centric, but offers a real beat on Cuban jazz along with the other wonderful, up-close and personal opportunities we have become known for. Partnering, again, with Cuba Careo Tours, to bring you the best of Cuba.
Cuban ‘Ukulele Rhythms February 16 – 25, 2024
Up close and personal. That’s the way we do Cuba! Sights, sounds, and experiences you won’t get anywhere else. Past participants have called it “life changing” and “the trip of a lifetime.” We’re adding an extra day to the standard trip in 2024 and an opportunity to visit Viñales (February 25 – 29) for those who want to stay a few more days! This one just keeps getting better. And, again…no more than 10 people.
Ukulele Safari in Kenya March 9 – 16, 2024
Imagine this: You are sitting around the campfire after an exciting day on safari in the Masai Mara, with new friends from all over the world. Then, out come the ‘ukuleles and a perfect day just got a lot little bit better. Not only that, at the same time you are having fun, you are doing good, because every registration includes a donation to the Kenya Ukulele Project. Contact me to learn more. Only 10 spaces available.
Uke, Bike, & Sail – Scotland September 1 – 8, 2024
This one is going to be amazing! We will sailing through Scotland’s Inner Hebrides and riding our bikes (or hiking) through some of Scotland’s most wild and iconic landscapes. And then, every evening we will retire to our lovely tall ship, The Flying Dutchman, for a fabulous meal and an evening of ukulele merriment with our dedicated ukulele facilitator. With just 9 cabins avaialable (all with bunk beds) we only have room for 18. So be sure to register soon!
If any of these look interesting, please be sure to “Follow Ukulele Adventures” or sign yourself up to be on our Mailing List. Many trips and adventures sell-out quickly, so you want to be among the first to know
