Ruth Dyche has been creating and leading international trips for over 35 years. This has been one of the joys of her life. After leading trips to Tonga, Fiji, Belize, Costa Rica, Turkey, and the Baltics, Ruth decided to focus on two specific areas of the world in order to become knowledgeable about them and be able to offer quality experiences and trips. She chose Africa and China. To date she has led twenty-one trips to China and twenty to Africa across the width and breadth of both places. In addition, she lived in Africa for a year and worked as a nurse in Zambia. She is particularly fond of lesser known traditional places that have not been widely visited. She enjoys reading, gardening, decorating, good conversation, travel, and researching topics of interest.
