A one in a lifetime trip, time take the risks of a new land with places to explore. Being outside of your comfort zone, it’s a scary thing isn't it?
The World Travelers Club takes students from PBHS to places we could only dream of going. From the boats of Italy, to the streets of France, and now they’re heading to Japan.
I recently interviewed club sponsor Ms.McClain about the plans for Japan. McClain said, “The Japan trip is an 11 day trip. We will first fly into Tokyo and leave in Osaka. The students will participate in cultural experiences, try new food, and see shows about Japanese culture.”
Even though the trips have a historical lesson, Ms.McClain said it's not just learning based. The trip is a mixture of different activities. During the trip the travelers break up into small groups to explore and shop.
They even plan to climb Mount Fuji sometime during the trip.
When I asked McClain if the trip is worth going on, she replied, “Oh, absolutely! How often do you get the opportunity for a low discounted price? The only way to get to know the world and get inspired by the world is to go see it for yourself.”
I not only wanted to get an adult perspective so I decided to ask two students, one that has yet to travel and one student that has.
Jazmyne Keese, a senior and a member of the club has traveled to France, Italy, England, and Germany. She enjoyed every trip and said, “The soup in Switzerland, oh my gosh it was amazing”
Keese said the trips are totally worth going on, “Yes definitely, it was not only very educational but also you get to experience a new place and have time with the people you meet there.”
Sophomore Alek Aguirre is fundraising for Costa Rica, his first trip. Alek hopes to see a lot of wildlife and just enjoy the culture.
He plans on going with a couple friends, sister, and his mom.
During the interview I asked Aguirre if he would miss home, he replied, “Um, I mean, kind of..I do hang out with my cousins a lot so.”
