I’m in college and so is my fiance, my sister and several of my close friends.
We’ve had several oppurtunities to travel in and out of the country for time periods from a weekend to two weeks and more.
For example, my degree actually requires travel to Athens and this counts as college credit. It is cheaper when bunking in groups of three or more and I would feel more comfortable with others I know.
Also, I am very interested in attending World Youth Day in Australia.
Anyways, all this talk about traveling has got me thinking: is it scandalous to go as a single college woman on these trips? I guess family and acquaintances have given me the impression that it is less scandalous to go with strangers rather than bunk with my fiance.
I know I wouldn’t be tempted to do anything-believe me- I know! We’ve been together more than 5 years without doing anything so I can’t see giving up now. I’m worried about scandal. The last couple of trips were with a group of friends where the boys and girls could split hotel rooms, but the school trips are co-ed and assigned by degree (meaning they put everyone who is taking the trip for their degree first, then add on passengers who are just going for the trip or for other reasons).
