Our spring trip to the Hill Country in Austin, Texas brought delights as we made our way on the back roads of Travis County. As part of the1965 Highway Beautification Act, Lady Bird Johnson encouraged cleanup of the interstates and state highways.
Texas is especially blessed with spring wildflowers and the medians and road embankments were blanketed with the famous Texas Blue Bonnets, Prairie Paintbrushes, and Yellow Primroses.
Explore every country that the Garcias have been to-- visually! Watch as countries are marked blue (visited) and those that are still unvisited (gray).
Even though the Garcias take multiple trips per year, they still have a long way to go for complete world exploration!
In answer to the many questions the Garcias have received about "what country do you like best?" here are our Top Ten Lists!
Follow their travels to see their best tour directors, most memorable places, favorite cities, and most beautiful places.

Vic and Gennie Garcia are retired school teachers who are now traveling the globe. They have been all over the world including Africa, Europe, Asia, and The Americas. They keep a daily journal for each trip they go on, and this site is where you can read each journal and view the pictures of the day!
Both Vic and Gennie use their digital cameras to capture the experiences, sights, and people they encounter on their journeys. Sometimes taking upwards of 200 photos a day, they capture every detail of the adventure, leaving nothing unnoticed. Whether it be a monkey on the top of a forest canopy, the intricate details of a flower, or the bright colors of a poison-dart frog, the Garcias will be sure to notice and photograph it!
GarciaTrips.com is your reservoir for their journeys and adventures, their photographs and journals. Browse around, look at the pictures, read a journal or two: soon you too will be engulfed in their adventures!
