Congratulations to Natalie Jones, our TFT Traveler of the Month for December 2011! Read below to see what Natalie has to say about her experiences with Travel for Teens.

I knew before I even left for my first Travel for Teens trip to Eastern Europe that I was going to have a fun time and maybe even learn a little history about places I had never seen before. What I hadn’t expected was the love for learning about (and even tasting) new things and places that I would acquire during my trips; throughout my experience with Travel for Teens I learned so much about the cultures and historical pasts of the places I was visiting, and Travel for Teens did a spectacular job of making everything we learned about engaging and interesting (something that most history textbooks have a hard time doing)!

Whether I was touring the Prague Castle or working for community service hours in Cinque Terre, there was never a dull moment.  Not only did Travel for Teens leave me with some unforgettable memories that I will cherish forever, but both my trips left me with life-long friendships with people I would have otherwise never had the opportunity to meet.

Traveling to a foreign country full of new and exciting things to learn and see is an extraordinary opportunity, and Travel for Teens does a great job helping each camper get the most out of every trip. I had so much fun last year, and I can’t wait for another summer of visiting new places with Travel for Teens!
