  • Having new experiences
* What could be improved?
  • There was confusion about what sites we already had prepaid tickets to and which we didn't, which made a lot of extra work for our directors.
* What do you know now that you wish you knew before going on this program? I wish I would have looked up some of the sites we were going to see so I could appreciate them more.
