    I really like in this article that it is most beneficial to travel in groups because having your tour directed and that traveling in twos or who alone can often be expensive. I traveled on a tour bus and I much enjoyed it and the benefits of being able to learn and travel with others. This is something that needs to be taken into consideration on your next big trip.

  2. Ben Davies says:

    I never imagined being able to go to New Mexico and skate, because I had to be in the hospital during the Christmas holiday last year, its make me sad … good article by the way

  3. Hey

    Need money, but have forgotten it in the future. If you now some guy to pay me for taking him to the future, tell me.

  4. Oooh, this guy’s offering to pay for the trip and hotel/meal expences. Is there a box on the expence form for antimatter fees? So I need to keep the receipt?

  5. Flights says:

    Traveling with friends, family, and loved ones can be great, but the benefits of social travel are very different from the benefits of traveling alone. With the right mindset, you’ll see how traveling alone is not only an incredible life experience- it’s often a necessary life experience.

    I get the strangest looks. Protein powder always some with me too. I’ll add it to oats in the airport (from home with hot water from a coffee stand, or plain ordered from Starbucks) and in hotels from the breakfast bar.

  7. Taxi Prices says:

    I need to go back in time too. The guy I wanted to study Eastern vocal music with died over four years ago, and God is not answering my emails demanding that he be sent back temporarily. Right now, I am studying comparisons and contrasts between ordinary and non-ordinary reality to see if any info on time travel can be gleaned from this.
