Here is some advice for any potential travelers who are hesitant to travel on their own. Keep in mind that the other passengers are just acquaintances until the first day.

When I say that I travel alone, friends from home are frequently taken aback. Typically, I inform them that I am traveling with fifty friends whom I have not yet met. I adore the fact that the people on tour come from all over the world. I maintain contact with a few people from each trip.

We mostly keep each other updated on our travels and lives through Facebook. Additionally, I believe that most of my tour leaders will always be my friends!
