Jacob and Mama Tofu in South Africa

Congratulations to Jacob Smith, our February Traveler of the Month! Jacob has matured into a serious world traveler over the years with TFT, having traveled on our Amsterdam, Belgium & Paris, Spain & Portugal 1 and 2, and South Africa Community Service trips! In 2012 he will join us in Thailand and China. We look forward to traveling with him this summer!

Here’s what Jacob has to say about his experiences around the world with Travel for Teens:

Travel for Teens has changed my life in so many different ways over the past three summers I have spent with them. The variety of trips that they offer, from Spain to South Africa really gives you a sense of how big and interesting the world is in a way that you can’t be taught, you have to live it to fully appreciate it. Travel for Teens does an amazing job giving you that sense of culture in different countries, and how food, language and everyday life varies from place to place. The people that go on Travel for Teens are some of the coolest people I have met and I still keep in contact with many of them over the years.
