I absolutely loved this trip! My time in France with TFT was the highlight of my year. From Day 1, we were immediately immersed in French culture and language. During this trip we got to visit all the sights- the Champs-Elysées, the Notre Dame, and the Arc de Triumph- but our exploration of Paris went so much deeper than a casual visit. We studied French in a local school, ate lunch in little boulangeries, and rode the metro like we were a part of the city. My favorite part of our trip was during the World Cup: nothing beats sitting in a cafe surrounded by boisterous Frenchmen chanting "Allez Les Bleus!" and celebrating with us as the French won the semifinals. To show support, our trip director even wore a rooster hat for every match! She and the other counselors helped us experience more of France than I had ever seen before, It was a truly wonderful trip, and I hope to return someday!

There are so many amazing and breathtaking moments from my Australia and New Zealand trip, we did so much from seeing the Sydney Opera House to paragliding in Queenstown. We immersed ourselves in the culture going to Aboriginal and Maori Hakas and some of us even got to join in. There was also the fulfilling volunteer work where we got to help at a nature reserve by making trails and clearing areas full of weeds. We also got to have a little fun with the animals, getting to feed the wallabies, going on bird watching tours, and a nighttime nature walk.
During our volunteer work, we camped in the Outback, some of us even slept in hammocks under the stars. At nights after a hard days work we would sit around a campfire cracking jokes, telling stories, singing songs, and playing games. We were so disconnected from technology we got to just enjoy the nature and the company of our new friends.
The counsellors were also amazing, leading us on these adventures and taking care of any of the few problems we had. There were days when things didn’t go to plan, but they made it work.
Overall, it was an unbelievable trip with unforgettable experiences, culture, volunteer work, and people.

My Costa Rica experience with TFT was an unforgettable one. I appreciated how it was not just a “vacation” but I was very invested in the culture and communities there. From zip-lining across the green rainforest, to building playgrounds for Costa Rican children, TFT did a fantastic job allowing me to see all the amazing things Costa Rica has to offer. The staff members were amazing, and easy to bond with, yet still placed reasonable and strict rules in place.

How can this program be improved?
Possibly nicer hotels, but the hotels chosen were very culturally investing.

Barcelona and Paris: two AMAZING cities and 10 days. What an adventure! This trip was so much fun, exploring the cities and immersing ourselves in the culture. The itinerary was full every day with different activities for us to participate in, as well as having some built-in free time to explore the cities. The counselors were super supportive and amazing people to have on the trip with us. This trip and TFT gave me the opportunity to explore yet another country in the world and learn the art of being a traveler and NOT being an artist! 10/10 would recommend

This trip gave the opportunities to have the summer of my lifetime! We started out with a week of community service in the gorgeous setting the Cinque Terre. During this week we amounted 20 hours of community service, but still had time to participate in different activities within the different towns. From there the group moved south- from Tuscany to Sorrento, even stopping in Rome for a few days. The itinerary was jammed packed with different planned activities for us to participate in, as well as built in free time for us to have the ability to explore the towns. The counselors were amazing on this trip, making sure that we were safe at all times, while still giving us time to explore on our own! They were pretty cool and it was super easy to talk to them about ANYTHING going on, if anything happened :)
