The thought of travelling with a gaggle of individuals could be intimidating, however it is likely one of the most rewarding and enjoyable methods of travelling. In 2019 I joined the Dragon Journey 25 day China Loop, and that is what I learnt:


Sharing Experiences Make Them Richer

The one peculiar and irritating factor in regards to the unimaginable experiences and recollections you might have and create when travelling is returning dwelling and attempting to elucidate them to others. Your family members won’t ever perceive, irrespective of how effectively you describe it, the fun of experiencing a brand new nation and tradition. We’re pack animals, it feels extra pure to share our pleased moments than to expertise them alone. Due to this fact, the extra individuals you share these experiences with, the richer they really feel. We had fairly a giant group throughout the China journey, there have been about 15 of us from age 18 to twenty-eight. This meant, to this present day, I nonetheless have loads of individuals to reminisce in regards to the thrilling issues we did.



The Friendships Fashioned are for Life

The friendships made throughout travelling with a gaggle are intense and develop in a short time. If you end up sharing these sorts of magical once-in-a-lifetime experiences with individuals, the bond you type may be very robust. This, mixed with hours and hours of prepare journeys and bus journeys, and each evening and day spent collectively, you develop into shut in a short time! I now have associates dotted all through the world, from Japan to America, who I do know will likely be associates for all times.

The Group Dynamic could be Supportive and Useful

Travelling could be tiring, and issues can go incorrect. Throughout the China journey I damage my ankle very badly, it was sprained and there was some muscle injury and torn ligaments. The day after this occurred we had been attributable to climb The Nice Wall of China, and there was no manner I used to be going to overlook it. The help from the group took away my worry, and inspired me to maintain going. They knew how excited I used to be for the Nice Wall and they also ensured it could occur. From discovering numerous sticks I might use as crutches, to taking it in turns to hold my bag, to even providing to hold me elements of the way in which. If I used to be alone, this may not have occurred and I used to be so grateful to have a gaggle of fellow like-minded travellers round me.

Having a Journey Organised by Professionals Makes a Enormous Distinction

Travelling a rustic like China takes an enormous quantity of organisation. With out it being organised by The Dragon Journey it could have been very tough to have the expertise we had. All our journey was booked for us upfront which means we had been taken to every station and instructed precisely the place to go and get there. We had an unimaginable jam-packed itinerary, from kayaking within the Chinese language countryside to a ship cruise by way of Shanghai.  With out The Dragon Journey’s connections within the trade and expertise we might by no means have pulled off such an unimaginable journey!




So, regardless of being apprehensive about travelling with a gaggle, it was top-of-the-line selections I made. I nonetheless stay associates with the guy dragons within the group and have travelled once more with them outdoors of The Dragon Journey. Group journey is a superb possibility for these eager to journey however wanting the help of fellow like-minded travellers!
