Hi, y’all! My mom and I are seriously considering traveling to Europe next Fall as a late 30th birthday celebration for me! We have debated on many different trips from river cruises to guided tours to traveling on our own and (I think) have narrowed it down to either a Week in Scotland with Tauck OR ABD trip to Prague and Austria. We rarely travel internationally. I have only been out of the country twice, one was a cruise to Cozumel that I really don’t even count, and the other time was a week in London (I’m a big British history buff). My mom is a nervous wreck about traveling to foreign countries where English isn’t the primary language. To be honest, I’m a little nervous, too. I know that you can find people who speak English, but I don’t know about signs and menus and jazz. BUT, I don’t want our anxiety to keep me from seeing what I have only read about in books and seen in movies. So if anyone would like to tell us y’alls experiences with traveling to countries where you don’t understand the language, I would appreciate it. Also, if anyone has been on either of these two trips and would like to share their experiences of the trips, I would appreciate that as well. Thank you!
