Herrington: The Enthusiasts' Catalog
Travel Dynamics International, excellence in small ship cruising focusing on history, culture, and nature
Travel Dynamics International's luxury small-ship cruises are unique in the world of cultural and educational travel. We create, and operate, entirely original cruise itineraries based upon exciting topics in ancient and medieval history, literature, art, traditional cultures and the natural world.
We specialize in Mediterranean cruises to unusual destinations of classical significance in Greece, Italy, Turkey, and the coastal North African nations of Morocco, Libya, Tunisia, Algeria, and Egypt. We lead extraordinary expeditions into natural wonderlands, including Antarctica and the Amazon; and conduct exotic cultural cruises, exploring indigenous communities, like those along the west coast of Africa. We are also proud to offer epic voyages utterly unknown to cruise ships, such as crossing the remote South Atlantic Ocean from the tip of Patagonia to South Africa.

In 1985, Bert Sperling developed a software program named "Places, U.S.A." which allowed people to enter their personal preferences to find their own best place. BestPlaces.net is a natural extension of our work over the last fifteen years regarding demographics, preferences, and the selection of "Best Places" to live, work, or retire.
Sperling's concepts and methodology have been the basis of numerous studies since 1985. Today, Fast Forward, Inc. (the producer of BestPlaces.net) is responsible for more "Best Places" studies and projects than any other single organization.
