JOIN THE FLASH PACK Group trips just got cool. No, really
If the words ‘group trip’ make you think of shouty guides with megaphones followed by a trail of tennis-sock-clad pensioners, think again. Organised trips for solo travellers have undergone a major reinvention. Now companies such as Flash Pack*, For The Love Of Travel** and Dragoman† offer explorers like, well, you the chance to reap the benefits of group travel, while also nailing your bucket list. Bounce along canyons in Costa Rica on a giant rubber ring, tequila-taste in Mexico or glamp in a converted lorry trailer (trust us on this one). The downside? Your chances of becoming best friends with anyone named Gladys have just dipped hugely.
