Simply Italy August 27 2011 - Am I An Old Fart?

18 Mar 2011 mefirstfitness asked


I've booked a Contiki Tour - Simply Italy (Aug 27 2011) but I'm on the high end of the age limit (okay basically 35). I'll be travelling solo, and while I am looking to meet new people and have fun on a group tour, I'm not necessarily a "party animal" and won't be drinking myself stupid every night. I'm wondering if I'd be seen as "the old fart" or have a harder time meeting people if I don't join in all the late night festivities. I do like the price and the itinerary for the Simply Italy tour, which is why I booked it instead of Gap, Transat, Trafalgar, etc. ....

Is anyone booked for this trip yet? It would make me feel a whole lot better to know that there are some other "older" travelers that are looking for a good time (without the hangovers)....!
