    We would absolutely love to do this trip, but cannot do it this year. We were wondering if Jamie would be doing the same trip next year???

    Unfortunately I am quite sure this is a one off deal. It may be that they do another trip in the future but it isn’t terribly common to repeat the same trip the next year.

    Stay tuned though, there may be more trips on the horizon that might tickle your fancy 🙂
