Let me preface this by saying — I am not really an idiot. In fact, I am a well-traveled professional who is comfortable with wandering around a new city with no plans or a map, communicating with locals when I don’t peak the language and finding a way to soak-up every offered experience in a new country. But that is on solo trips, and now I am planning to a nature travel experience with my family. Suddenly, the collected world-traveler who has lived for weeks out of a carry-on — scarves are the key to looking fabulous! — has turned into a stress ball...and something of an idiot.
