Travel VS vacation

Nicole Krauss on Travel vs

When you're planning to travel to a foreign destination such as Europe, Asia, Africa or Australia, the first thing you will have to decide is if you will go on an escorted trip, or an independent one. An escorted trip is when you travel with a set group of people, including a tour guide. You travel, eat, stay, explore and shop with this group of people. Flexible Independent Travel, however, is when you chose you itinerary. You can follow this itinerary as you please but you must navigate your own way around the foreign city. Since both types of vacation are extremely different, it may help to look at the benefits and drawbacks of each before you decide what type of traveler you are.

Escorted travel is a great option for some travelers because of the social aspects it provides. Since all the members of the group are experiencing the same sites, conversation and friendship are inevitable between members. New friends and relationships are easy to gain through escorted tours. A tour guide is also provided for escorted travel groups. Tour guides can be a great benefit for members of a group because they can get more questions answered and can obtain in-depth history about certain sites, unlike those who may be viewing these sites alone. A tour guide can also be very valuable in cities that use a foreign language you're not familiar with. The tour guide can help you with shopping and ordering food to make sure there is no communication breakdown between languages.
