If you’ve been following my blog lately, you know that I’ve been doing a LOT of traveling since 2012 began. It’s mostly all been for work, but I’ve been lucky in that it’s taken me to some really amazing places, such as Miami, New York, Paris, Rome, Florence, Tuscany, Verona, Venice, and now I’m back in New York AGAIN.
Since my “exploring” time is often so limited on these trips, organized tours have been really helpful. They’re not just for old ladies you guys, I swear! When we were in Europe filming in January we used Contiki Vacations for our escorted tours. It made things so much easier and eliminated a lot of the guesswork for all of us so we could actually enjoy what little downtime we had. We were able to squeeze in trips to all of the historical landmarks that we wanted to see and work in some fun mini adventures, too, like a wine tasting tour and trips to the local market. I felt like we were speed-dating Italy!
Personally, I have enough trouble with the packing process…I can’t imagine working, packing, and planning it all…
What kind of traveler are you? Do you like to explore with no plans at all, do you research and make all the plans yourself, or do you like to use the services of a travel operator like Contiki?
P.S. Who’s on spring break right now?!
