But if you are so inclined to understand how that dance comes to play, how that actually looks and feels and tastes in real life on the road rtw travel days, read on.

Interested in the insights on how it all pans out from year three of life on the road? Here we go: Pre-Planning This is 100% the Kobi department. Remember, I’m the dreamer; He’s the doer. I say,...
