      helps prevent muscle pulls.

      Walking Adventures International: History, Culture, Scenery, and
      Walking...more than just a walking tour!
      The image of Ireland has long captivated the imagination of the American
      traveler. Perhaps it's the ancestral linkage many of us have to the
      “Old Country.” Possibly it’s the stories of irresistibly warm
      hospitality or pictures of rolling green countryside and dramatic
      coastal scenery. Maybe it’s the dynamic Celtic heritage artfully
      balanced by the playful obsession with music and dance. Join us as
      imagination becomes reality this summer on this brand-new 12-day walking
      adventure devoted to the Emerald Isle. 7 IVV walks included. July 24 -
      August 4, 2004. Plus, optional Scottish Highlands extension! Call today
      to receive more information or to register at 1-800-779-0353. You can
