A Tour of Rustic England…for Introverts

800px-Torre_de_GlastonburyI love this concept. 

There’s a company starting something called a “Sacred Introvert Retreat Tour” in the Somerset/Wessex region of England.

In some ways, it’s a typical tour. You visit beautiful, ancient landmarks and soak in the scenery. You eat local food. You learn about the history.

But where it deviates from the norm is that it’s specifically catered towards introverts. It’s essentially a tour built around the idea of traveling alone…with other people who like to travel alone. A lot of this means that people will have lots of time to recharge in between the group portions of the tour, and the social activities are geared around quiet contemplation, not partying and social interactions.

Also, I really like that the tour is focused on a specific area. You’re not rushing around to see half the country in a week. Rather, you settle down in Glastonbury and stay there the entire time. That’s exactly how I like to travel.

This is essentially what my solo trip to Ireland a few years ago could have been. As much as I like my quiet time to be creative, it would have been nice to have similar people around from time to time.

What do you think, fellow introverts? How do you like to travel?
