Where To Now?
Dan and I don’t normally take group tours, or do anything that is planned extensively. I really mean, we rarelyÂ plan anything. We march to our own band, and play it by ear.
One of the many perks of attendingÂ TBEXÂ travel blogger’s conference, is that bloggers are treated to some amazing and meticulously planned FAM trips, both before and after the conference. A FAM (familiarization) trip is what tour operators and hotels do to entice Travel Agents to sell their properties.
Since today’s TravelÂ Bloggers are the go-to’s for information about places to see, and things to do all over the world, we are now the ones, to whom these brand reach out.
So Many Tours, So Little Time
Out of the dozens of trips from which to choose, Dan and I chose a three day excursionÂ called “Feel The Water” which took us to the Terres de l’Ebre region of Catalunya, a little known area that boasts its naturally preserved territory.
ThisÂ adventure filled journey, would not include any of our “de rigeur” travel activities which usuallyÂ consist of:
It wouldÂ include things we would not normally include in our plans.
Touring a Natural Delta
Learning How to Basketweave
ItÂ turned out to be more fun and educationalÂ thanÂ any of our “let’s just play it by ear” vacations.
Our hotels, meals, transportation and activities were all carefullyÂ chosen and meticulously planned for us.
We started off on a super comfy HIFE motor coach complete with wi-fi (happy bloggers), looking forward to visiting an area of Spain about which we knew nothing!
Alberto Folch was our tour guide for the day, and he was super informative about the region to where we were headed.
Thanks to the tourism boards of San Carlos de Rapita, Catalunya, and Tarragona for putting it all together.
Who knew there were so many things to do inÂ Terres de L’ebre?
In my next several blog posts, I will share each of the incredible portions of this trip, or click on the links above!
