Do you have a good travel option for me??

“Dear Ai,
I’d like to go to the Rocky Mountains with my friends this summer. Most of them have a driving license from their countries and they are talking about renting a car. But I’m worried about accidents. Also some of my friends don’t have any health insurance. Do you have good travel options for me?” Rose - Taiwan

“Hi, Rose. Thank you for your question. I’m not surprised to hear that some students do not have any health insurance at all. Most of the time, an accident happens when you are not prepared for it. Driving to the Rocky Mountains is do-able, but on your way to the Rockies, there are narrow highways and sometimes animals jump into the road. Drivers probably need to take turns. If you and your friends are driving, then make sure you do not go beyond your limits. If you are tired of driving, ask them to take turns or rest for a while. You might need to book a B & B for a night to recuperate.

If you would like to be free from worrying, then take a train. You can do bus trips this time of year, but I recommend you to take a “Rocky Mountaineer” train.

Be sure to buy travel insurance. You can go to any bank or travel agency to get it. It is very wise to listen to your instinct.
