I have been to Australia several times but the furtherest afield I have been was Hawaii nearly 20 years ago. I have long wanted to travel further, especially Europe and a few years ago opened a Travel Savings account in another bank (so I couldn’t touch it). Its now getting to the stage that if I want to go in the next year or two I need to start planning!
This is the trip I am planning on doing with Globus and the map is above.
Yes there are cheaper ways of going but I want to go and see as much of everything as I can, find the bits I liked the most and plan to go back and see them at a later date, cheaper and with a longer stay.
I really like the idea of no fuss travel ie I get up, have my included breakfast buffet, pile onto a bus, see the sights and the countryside, end up at a hotel and rinse wash and repeat. No drama with travel, getting lost, not knowing the language, having to find your accomodation, wrestling bags, and generally wasting half your precious holiday with non holiday stuff. Tho some would say thats all part of the overall experience. I want to see the buildings and museums, eat the food, wander about enjoying the ambience and PHOTOGRAPH EVERYTHING!!!
I may be able to go next year but otherwise it *will* be 2014. Thats a LOT of anticipation………
