Ben Musachio, a senior at the Friends School of Baltimore, recently found out that he won an all-expenses paid trip to Italy with Travel for Teens (see his reaction here!). Ben’s grand-prize-winning essay for TFT’s 4th Annual Friendship Contest was based on an experience he had in Russia on another trip.

Ben’s trip to Italy will take him to the famed Cinque Terre region, AKA the Italian Riviera, for a community service project. After spending five glorious days in the Cinque Terre, the group will explore Rome for a few days and then finish up in style staying in Sorrento, on the Amalfi Coast.
