A Look Back

* What did you like most about the program?
  • Friends
  • Ability to travel
  • Food
* What could be improved?
  • Don't do the vouchers, I would have eaten a lot more places if not been for them. A prepaid card would work better.
* What do you know now that you wish you knew before going on this program? The world is a lot bigger than you think, people everywhere love to laugh, smile, and love just like you do.
