Trafalgar's European Explorer 2006 memoirs part 7

Trafalgar European Explorer 2006-March-28

Two other single travellers on my 2006 trip, a Trafalgar's bus tour, on an itinerary called the European Explorer.

The lady, I seemed to remember, was from Canada, maybe somewhere on the East Coast. German, or at least German-speaking. Her story was that her husband didn't want to go, but she did and decided to go on the trip without him.

The gentleman was from Australia, I think, and didn't return with us to London but continued on another tour. He had the misfortune of being paired up with the difficult gentleman I mentioned in an earlier post, and confided horror stories of being kept awake in the wee hours of the morning because said gentleman wanted to watch television and had it turned up very loudly.
Finally he had enough, and the tour director put us together instead. Until then, although I had signed up for twin-share, the odd numbers meant I had had a room to myself. Fortunately, this gentleman was respectful and good humoured and we got along very well.
