From the moment I met our leaders Jess, Brendan and Kyle, I was instantly met with excitement from them that was absolutely contagious. It all started with Jess calling me very early in the am once I landed to see how my friend and I were doing. In addition, she was so friendly and easy to talk to yet organized in every way to get a whole big group of 36 of us to and from dinners, outings and tours- no easy task! But she did it effortlessly as if this was the norm. This was my first Intro travel trip and I’m so glad I did it. I had experiences I’d never dreamed of in places I never knew even existed and gained many new friendships. Most importantly though, the leaders made me feel so safe, especially with Jess’ expertise of the country and her friendship I witnessed with the locals. There was never a dull moment with the group as the leaders outgoing personalities kept us all dancing, laughing and singing even on long travel days (or doing the cupid shuffle!). So thank you intro travel for creating such a memorable trip but also thank you jess for working so hard and always bringing your caring soul and contagious energy every step of the way to make sure we were all safe and enjoying ourselves. You’re simply the best!
