  • 4. Paula Caldwell’s love for travel started as a young child. Her love of travel took her to Honolulu Hawaii and that is where her career in the travel industry began. Paula’s first job in the industry was with Outrigger Hotels Hawaii. She worked for Outrigger Hotels for several years, in both their FIT and wholesale reservation departments. She also worked for Trase Miller in their Tulsa Oklahoma office.

In 1997, she got her start as an travel agent, where she worked for a time as an outside agent for a local travel agency. In 2001, Paula opened Dioduet Travel, in which she started focusing on the luxury market.

  • 5. FALL FASHION TOUR JAPAN OCTOBER 12 ~ 26 Tour Organizer Profile: Bodhi Fishman Bodhi first came to Kyoto in 1990, drawn by a love for Japan's traditional "arts of practice": tea ceremony, calligraphy, flower arrangement, Noh drama, and martial arts. Starting as director of the Oomoto School of Japanese Arts, Bodhi has spent decades working with many of Japan's leading masters to introduce these traditions to visitors from around the world. Over 20 years spent collaborating with author and conservationist Alex Kerr on the translation of his book Lost Japan, producing the follow-up Dogs & Demons, art collecting, and townhouse & rural conservation projects, have served to deepen Bodhi's passion for the preservation and transmission of Japan's rich cultural heritage. Bodhi is an artist and art collector himself, and his company Bodaiju (“Bodhi Tree”) Travel & Arts speaks to his belief that Japan is a place where myriad glimpses of enlightenment may be gained through encounters with the many masters here. Bodhi's tour arrangement focuses on bringing travelers together in deep and meaningful hands-on meetings with these local sensei – the artisans, artists, chefs, art collectors, gardeners, Zen monks, tea teachers, martial arts masters, and more – with which Japan is blessed.
