I'm currently collecting data from young adults and parents/guardians to discover what measures are necessary to feel safer when travelling, for reassurance and peace of mind. Therefore, I have prepared a few questions to help allocate these particular necessities and engage with personal preferences.
What personal attributes does your son/daughter have that will enhance their travelling experience?
Mixes easily with others. A lot of common sense.
Respectful, curious, independent, resilient
They love travelling already and my daughter has already visited Dominican Republic to study medicine in a hospital for 2 weeks a few years ago - I think they both are excited to travel more and they themselves have no fear!
