Jan Clark has taken over 15 holidays with Just You, here she tells us why she loves to explore the world with us….
"Travelling means so much to me. I really love to see as much of the world as possible, for me it is the opportunity to experience other cultures and really explore the history of a country. I love history, so if there is a pile of ruins to be seen and it’s a few thousand years old, I am there!
With Just You, you meet the most amazing people on tour. I’ve made friends for life, so that for me is a big part of being able to travel on my own, but within the safety of a group. On these holidays I don’t have to think about organising anything. For me, Just You is a no-brainer, it is so easy to achieve the things I want to do when I go away on holiday.
Solo adventures in India
From the trips I have taken, I would have to pick out India as a real highlight, it really is an onslaught of the senses. A particular place for me was the Ranthambore National Park. It was our very first trip into the park and it was a cold morning, and the sun was just up. Within two or three minutes two enormous tigers came out of the bush in front of us and were just 50 yards away, I mean you could not have arranged it any better. It was incredible.
One of the most exciting moments of my life was while driving around the park, suddenly, the local guides, who are so tuned in, said to stop the bus. The whole jungle went silent, and you knew that something was coming, something very dangerous. We looked up to a ridge and there silhouetted was a leopard, it was just amazing, the hairs went up on the back of your neck. The leopard was there for a moment and then gone, it was so exciting.
