Two trips. That's great.
I am sorry that you have had bad experiences with adults on your trips. So
far I have not. Even when I traveled with EF. I no longer travel with EF, I
use another agency. But I have found that the adults and students mix and
share the experiences in ways that are different for each age group and in
ways that enhance and enrich for everyone. Maybe I have just been lucky.

And you are correct about the pace. However I am up front with my travelers
as are the companies with which I travel. On my last trip we had a
seventy-five year old worman who had a ball as did the six year old. The six
year old was diligently trying to learn the language everywhere we went. I
have arthritis and bad feet and I keep up. Perhaps I've just been lucky about
the groups with which we have been placed. They have been fun companions. Not
everyone is as pleasant as others but everyone is polite.

The trips are inexpensive, educational and fun. For luxurious one would have
to pay considerably more. For far.....they can't be beat.

I hope to make a total of three trips next summer. I may die trying but I am
game if my travel group is.

Let me know how yours go.
