About Take the Trip

I was 15 years old the first time I flew on an airplane.  Growing up in a small town, this trip to the Dominican Republic with my school was likely to either make me extremely uncomfortable or open up a whole new world for me!  It was not a "comfortable" trip.  Our accommodations were simple, and we spent most of our time interacting with local people.  I absolutely loved it--I loved everything that was different from what I was used to.  I would not fly again for another 10 years when I went to England to visit a British friend I had met at a summer job in Glacier National Park.  She taught me how to be a good traveler.  This site is dedicated to her.  Over 20 countries and 5 continents later, I have a lot to share with you.
