I was talking to a friend, another retired teacher, the other day about our respective travels. She and her husband took a Rhine cruise back in May with a few days in Paris at the end. She booked the cruise through an affinity group & had a great time. But it was quite costly compared to the economics of our travels - and of course her experiences of travelling with a group were quite different from our "drive around, walk a lot, eat well, but watch the wine consumption" style. At some point in our conversation she said that she thought I travelled "smart". Why, thanks Carol.
Slow Travel = Smart Travel - works for me.
