Art and Travel seem to go hand in hand don't you think? Artists can be spotted everywhere whether they have a paint brush in hand, or photographing the sites or writing about their experiences.

If you have a creative mind then travelling will not only inspire you to create, it will also give you endless subject matter.

Travel Charm has teamed up with artist Kathy Karas to host Painting Trips to beautiful destinations in Europe. Kathy holds daily painting demonstrations and workshops. You can do as much or as little as you like. Watch Kathy capture the scene in front of you in watercolour and then paint it yourself under Kathy's guidance and tuition. Or be inspired to go sightseeing and explore as much as you can. Either way, you will love being surrounded by like-minded creative people to travel with.

Travel Charm takes care of all that organisational stuff that can make a holiday boring and allows you plenty of free time if you want to take it or join Kathy and me on our adventures.

You certainly don’t have to be an artist to travel on one our Painting Trips, but you could learn a new skill if you wanted to. And who knows, maybe a new passion. Or you could simply join us for the companionship and convenience a group trip offers.

Take a look and see if our Painting Trips and travel style seem like a good fit for you.

Travel is so much better with someone to share things with. But you don't want to be living in each other's pockets either. You want some space, but you also would like the convenience of having things organised for you.

We think so too! Our trips have been designed especially for you. These are not tours (definitely not!) but trips where you get to travel with like-minded people to extraordinary destinations, share in fun and exciting activities including Painting Demonstrations and Workshops, but with the flexibility that allows you to do your own thing (if you want to of course!).

So take a look and see if our travel style is your travel style.

Hi I'm Cindy Reid and I am the founder of Travel Charm. For me travel is not just about heading to beautiful destinations around the world but also about embarking on a personal journey. Travel always changes me in some way and that's what I love most. In my life travel has started me on and seen me through times of great change and new beginnings. I am living my dreams and more than anything I want to help others do the same.
