I have a couple of ways to solve this dilemma:

- - my family likes to sleep late on vacation, while I always get up at 6, so this
gives me a couple of hours in the morning to explore on my own

- - take trips alone

- - or, as you suggest, join a group of photographers (although this works best for
landscape, I think). You do NOT need to pay enormous amounts to do it with the
Leica Academie. Right in Brussels you have the club Viewfinders, and they
organise at least two substantial trips a year: last year in Canterbury, this
spring in Ireland, in December a workshop with Charlie Waite in Damme etc. It is
a lot cheaper and great fun.
