Be brave and ask questions!

by Charlotte
(Georgia)

My husband and I are an older couple (65 & 71) and when we first started going to Europe we took tours and soon found out that we could go there on our own. Last year we got a rail pass and traveled all over Germany.

So, my tip is to learn a little of the language and with a smile on your face ask questions. The people we talked to were very happy to give us directions or suggest restaurants. The right attitude will get you some wonderful experiences.

Shoulder Season
We love travel during shoulder seasons.
September, October, November...

They're all great for travel somewhere!
