Nervous about going on a large group tour
I am actually really nervous about my next trip. I have not been travelling much this year due to cancer treatment and even though I feel well enough to travel I seem to have lost a little confidence.
I am going on a group tour to Morocco. It is actually really out of my comfort zone. Firstly the age of the group is 18-39. I am 37 so wont be able to go on this sort of tour for much longer but I have always been worried that they will be full of younger travellers who want to get drunk rather than see the sights.
However I am hoping because this particular itinerary is visiting some amazing places that the travellers will hold off on their drinking a little. I am not saying I dont want them to have fun I just dont want to be surrounded by loud drunken youths. Hoping I am not stereotyping anyone.
Also it is a bigger group than I have travelled with before. I dont know exactly how many people will be on the tour but it says it can be around 40. This is a lot of people so I guess it is going to take some organising to get us to the places on the trip. I am also hoping it is going to be a nice mix of people and I will meet some travellers that I can connect with.
We will be travelling on a coach. I am not the best traveller when it comes to coaches unless I have space I get a little claustrophobic it takes me back to my school days when I used to get travel sick on coach school trips. I am hoping the tor wont be so big that I can have a spare seat next to me or at least have a window seat.
I chose this tour because it had 50% off and there is no way I could have done the same itinerary at the same cost. I know I have done it cheaply and I am not expecting high standards it is mainly a source to get me to the places I want to go but at the same time I do want to enjoy it.
I will also be camping. I have camped for the first time this year and did love it but this is camping n the Sahara Desert I hope I dont start panicking about being in the middle of nowhere as it does sound like an amazing thing to do and it is one of the reasons I have booked this group tour as there is no way you could go camping in the Sahara on your own well unless you are very very brave I guess.
Anyway come back in a couple of weeks and I will update you on how I actually got on with the large group tour. If you have any tips for me travelling in a large group or even to Morocco then please get in touch.
