One of the great, little things, about Trafalgar is one of the bus rules.
I think this simple rule made a huge difference in our trip. The rotating of seats allowed us to sit next to different people throughout the trip, but also remain with our families and friends. We had the opportunity to chat with familiar faces, or get to know new ones. Although we didn’t bond with absolutely everyone on the trip, Not only did we get to know more people, but we also had the chance to see different city views.
You know in school when the back of the bus was considered “the cool place to be.” This was not necessarily the case when it came to a 10-day Eurotrip. For the longer journeys it was nice to sit at the back with the most legroom. For the shorter trips the front seats were the best for the best sights. The rotating seats rule ensured every person on the bus had equal opportunity to see the sights. No animosity was created with people “claiming” the back of the bus or always getting the front view.
