Being a solo girl traveler I was always afraid that something might happen to me. I loved the trip, Will was very nice and respectful. Showed marvelous places. When coming back to the hotel, the driver said he was going to drop off other passengers first (I taught it was weird since I’m the morning I was the last one being picked up). When me and the driver were alone he told me I was beautiful and asked if I wanna do something with him which made me super uncomfortable and afraid
