untouring
 n.— «Having contacted a travel agency, we were informed that what we wanted would be exorbitantly expensive and would require a customized tour. Almost immediately, our thoughts of personal freedom disappeared. Then, the agent mentioned one group that did not use travel agencies and gave us their Web site. Thus began our romance with what has become known to us as “untouring.”…stead of visiting 14 cities in as many days and having to live out of a suitcase, constantly packing and repacking and carting enough clean underwear, as well as everything else, to last the entire trip, you have a home away from home for two weeks.» —“A Different Approach To European Travel” by Eric Millirons Western Chesterfield Exchange (Virginia) Oct. 11, 2007.
