Blogging the road 2 Timbuktu
We have always asserted that lack of imagination is the only real restriction in travel. Happily our clients seem to have huge imaginations, which probably is what bring them to us in the first place, the young and not-so-young alike. In fact, a significant number of our clients are in the 60 plus age bracket, longing for authentic, adventurous travel that goes beyond a cruise or packaged city break.
One valued client is Frieda, who travelled with us on a trip to Timbuktu at the admirable age of 90. She has led an incredible life since she was born in 1921, fleeing Nazi Germany to become a nurse, then a doctor. She wrote to us after the trip to Timbuktu, which she went on alone. She described it as a place that had always been synonymous with magic for her and her partner. Her delight in finally visiting was clear.
