One of my clients asked me this year: “How come your trips are so full of women?” (Women make up 65-70% of my clients).

“Because they’re more adventurous than men” I replied.

This caused the men’s feathers to flutter. Rubbish rubbish rubbish … women were more likely to book on a guided trip because of security – they were using me as their great protector! (mocking tones all round ) – men are all travelling on their own.
