Tired of Looking for Someone to Travel With?

Why Traveling Professor Tours May be the Solution

tired of looking for a travel partnerWhen I reflect upon how The Traveling Professor concept started, it goes back to the early 2000's.  Back then, I used to travel alone to Paris. Frankly, I enjoyed the freedom during the day of doing what I wanted to do when I wanted to do it.  But when it came to dinner time, I yearned to socialize with other adults like me. After my book, The Traveling Professor's Guide to Paris was published, and my travel story was publicized in places like The Wall Street Journal and Newsday, travelers who did not have a travel partner wanted to travel with me and my small group tours of active adults.  The rest, as they say, is history.  Read more in today's blog post.

Imitation is the Sincerest Form of Flattery

Others Are Now Trying To Do What The Professor Has Been Doing For Years

Professor Steve SoloskyIt seems that everyone wants to be like The Traveling Professor.   I introduced my concise book, "The Traveling Professor's Guide to Paris" in 2009, now I see people like Rick Steve's doing "pocket" editions of his books.    I started with a "small group tour" concept and now I see other tour companies like Intrepid and Overseas Adventure Tours trying to do the same thing by offering small group tours.   However, I think I still offer something these big, impersonal tour operators can't do and I write books that are not for everyone, but they are probably for you.
