Tired of Looking for Someone to Travel With?

Why Traveling Professor Tours May be the Solution

tired of looking for a travel partnerWhen I reflect upon how The Traveling Professor concept started, it goes back to the early 2000's.  Back then, I used to travel alone to Paris.

After my book, The Traveling Professor's Guide to Paris was published, and my travel story was publicized in places like The Wall Street Journal and Newsday, travelers who did not have a travel partner wanted to travel with me and my small group tours of active adults.  The rest, as they say, is history.  Read more in today's blog post.
