ALEXANDRIA va

I have never taken a guided package tour in my life. When my son was young, we did cruises but did the shore excursions on our own. Travel by air is very unpleasant now since TSA treats me like a terrorist because of my feeding tube (cancer surgery ) and almost pulls it out trying to see if I might have explosives in my stomach despite clearing the full naked body scans.. Having a doctor's note does not help..Recently a SW Destination Expert advised me to just drive or take a train if I did not like TSA pulling on my tube although Google maps do not show the highway to Europe he must know about.. I get a lot of good advice on travel from the other DEs in other forums and like to "pass it along" to tourists in my town.
