Unaccompanied Tours Blog

Check out FLO’s blog, Foggy Bottom Rambles, for employees and family members who are or will be going through an unaccompanied tour.  We named the blog Foggy Bottom Rambles to reflect how we (back here in DC, Foggy Bottom area) provide information (rambles) to you. Read our blog here.

You can:

Find tips and suggestions from readers
Read reviews of several books from the regions
Learn a bit about one of the unaccompanied post countries
Discover some new websites that may be helpful during the tour...

...whether you are the employee or family member.
