PHILOSOPHY: The primary attraction of foreign travel is the "foreignness" of the country visited. If everything was as it is at home, the world would be a duller place and there would be little reason to travel for pleasure. We are certain that your tour will be fascinating and rewarding but you should understand that it is a journey through a country with different living standards and practices and different provisions of utilities and services and accommodations than those you are familiar with at home. We encourage you to be flexible when you travel and expect surprises.
