Joan’s Last Minute Solo Safari
Today I had lunch with a friend and spent most of the time sharing about my trip and answering questions. When the inevitable “who did you go with?” arose, I said “I went solo” using an absolutely awesome travel agency “NEXT ADVENTURE”. With only a month before I wanted to leave, you listened to my ideas and questions, responding and asking several questions yourself. You reassured me that Africa was an easy place to go solo, but you weren’t sure my goal would be possible at such a late date. Still, you went to work and within 48 hours, the itinerary was pinned down, 80% confirmed (the final 20% all done within 4 days). You even included 3 days of canoeing, having picked up my enjoyment of paddling from our initial conversation, and you added the treat of your “favorite place” in Zambia.
The trip turned out to be so much more than I expected. I felt cared for and watched over every step of the way. I am so, so grateful to you for being there, listening, asking questions yourself and then being willing to go up against the odds for planning this trip. What an effort and what marvelous results! Thank you, Thank you! I look forward to working with you again!
