I went on the Italy Service and Adventure trip during the Summer of 2018, which was my first trip with Travel for Teens. I can genuinely say that I had some of the best days of my life on this trip! My fellow travelers and I took part in meaningful service activities such as helping maintain a garden at a monastery and renovating an Italian elementary school. After a few days of service, we focused on the adventure portion of the trip! This included visiting historic sites such as Pompeii and taking boat rides up and down the Amalfi Coast. Overall, this trip was both humbling and incredible fun. It was an amazing opportunity for me to experience what Italy is like from a real traveler's point of view, not a tourist's!
