I signed up for the tour without knowing a soul. Such a diverse group of people! Missionaries, Navigators, Nurse, Chaplain, Oil Executive, Mail Person, Farmer, Small Engine Repair Business Owner, Marketing, Designer, Photographer, Legal Paraprofessional, Teacher, Banker, CPA, Songwriter, Archaeologist, etc. All walks of life, all fascinating people. Couldn't have asked for a better group of folk with which to travel, explore and learn. After several days the group actually felt like family.
