I honestly can’t say enough good things about this trip. It was life changing to say the least, and also made me realize how doable travel can be. International travel has always been something I’ve wanted to do more of, but I just had no idea how within reach it was. Thank you for putting this trip together, and for also being an incredibly knowledgeable resource. I’ll definitely be traveling with you again in the (hopefully) very near future!
