When my husband and I were making plans to holiday in Vietnam many people commented on how brave (Or crazy) we were since Vietnam is a third world country and we would be travelling with our six month old baby daughter. There was a time, when some of the most beautiful places of Nature were inaccessible, through roads. But the advancement of infrastructure, has resulted in better and well connected roads and highways and expressways. The number of people who will be traveling with you depends heavily on where you are going travel insurance and what you will be doing. It is what you prefer for the occasion or for safety. Another day we decided to widen our horizons and try our hand at a whitewater rafting experience. We signed on for the Dave Hansen tour, one of many choices. Whitewater rafting for novices is not only an education in basic river safety, but an exhilarating day of fun and water splashed excitement. One advantage is you can write your own itinerary and the other one is to not think too much of time compared with traveling with a companion.

If the vacation is at the beach, waterfalls, camping trip or a roller coaster ride, I would definitely choose to travel with my rowdy friends whom I can have amazing adventures, many exciting new things to discover, different knowledge to share with each other. You are traveling on your own, so it would be a bit lonely at times. However, that shouldn’t always be the case if you just step out from own shyness and be amiable to anyone you meet down the road. Ø Tour the city with the locals. A bus pass or subway token is a great way to meet the local people and see the sights. The public transportation service of most European cities is remarkably efficient, clean, safe and easy to navigate. It is not necessary to speak the local language to navigate on the subway or the bus system of most cities.
