I always do extensive research before a trip, it’s one of my favorite parts of traveling actually! Even though I wasn’t planning this trip (I was just a school chaperone) I still did my bit of learning about the locations were were going to experience. So keep in mind that most of the logistics were 100% out of my hands I still kept comparisons of what we actually did with my research.
