      This was my first TFT trip and I've been hooked ever since. Even though I went on this trip about 3 years ago, I still remember so much about it. I remember how sweet the staff was - from the moment they met me at my gate, they helped me get my complicated flight schedule situated. There were about 15-20 kids on my trip and we were all so close by the end! I still keep in touch with quite a few of them today. I remember the gorgeous sites we saw, the crazy gas stations and landmarks on the road, and the AMAZING food (I still think about that Alberta mac and cheese at least once a week). As someone from the east coast, it was a bit weird to me being in Canada than the mountain-ey west coast along the beach. I took so many pictures I couldn't fit them all in this post. But I can say with certainty that this trip was one of the best things to happen to me. If I had not gone on this trip, even any Travel for Teens trip, I would not have found my passion for hospitality and eventually wanting to work at a national park.
