Tour as part of my Wandering Earl Tours project. I had recently returned from my trip to Yemen at the time and my experiences on Socotra, that remote Yemeni island in the Indian Ocean, were so incredibly memorable and unlike anything I had ever experienced before, that I just had to put together a tour.
And from that single mention of the idea on the blog a month ago, I ended up with over twenty people on the ‘early list’. The ‘early list’ is what I use to gather the names of those who are interested in the tours I am planning before I have finalized all of the details. Once the details are finalized, I then email everyone on that ‘early list’ and give them a chance to confirm a spot on the tour before I formally announce the trip on the blog.
Well, the details are now finalized for this Wander Across Socotra Island Tour, and after contacting everyone on the ‘early list’ over the past couple of weeks, I’ve had twelve people already confirm their spots. And while twelve people is more than I normally prefer for my tours (usually the maximum is ten people), this tour is a little different.
With the way things work on Socotra Island, it will be quite enjoyable to have a larger group this time around. To be honest, I think everyone will love sharing our experiences together as we camp out under the stars, hike through the mountains, explore some very cool caves, wander around some of the most idyllic beaches you’ve ever seen, swim in the turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean and on and on and on.
