Growing Friendships through the Love of Travel

“A journey is best measured in friends, rather than miles.” – Tim Cahill

In this month of love and chocolates, we draw comfort from remembering that the basis of any strong connection relies on a deep, devoted friendship. Sharing common interests is an excellent start to that friendship, and when we share our love of travel, we are awakened in meaningful ways that enhance and encourage us to be good to ourselves and others. While you are traversing a country with Scholarly Sojourns’ small groups and engaging in heart-felt discussions of the day’s events, you are creating binding friendships with those who have kindred interests.

Initially, you may choose one of our sojourns for historical or literary interests, but your self-discovery throughout the trip will connect you to other travelers, even if you think you are traveling “alone.” Following adventure and travel writer Tim Cahill observation, the friendships cultivated on Scholarly Sojourns tours endure beyond the miles. For two of our recent travelers, a chance meeting on our Uncovering Camelot tour turned into an extended friendship once home and continued into plans to experience more of the world, including an upcoming Scholarly Sojourns Great Castles of Ireland tour. Perhaps a small group of wine or Scotch aficionados will enter into a correspondence of descriptive emails on food and drink once you return from one of our Epicurean Tours. Or maybe your devoted interest in theatre could lead to future discussions and plans for theatre meet ups after taking one of our Edinburgh Fringe tour.

The miles covered on a Scholarly Sojourns trip translate into a special camaraderie— friendships you will cherish and the possibility of taking another sojourn together. Novelist Edith Wharton found that travel shows us “how many good, kind people there are.” In addition to those encounters you will have in each city, town, or village, those “good, kind people” are often part of your own traveling group. Now is the time to discover those who share your love of travel, your desire to see the world, as you mark new friendships through the miles on a Scholarly Sojourns trip. What are you waiting for?
