A TEEN’S TAKE: Baylea Pritchett on the British Isles

“The People to People 19-day trip to Scotland, Ireland, Wales and England was a great experience. I really liked the hands-on learning about other cultures. My favorite place was Ireland. I stayed with a nice family on my homestay, and I enjoyed shopping with my friends in Dublin. I also liked the river rafting in Scotland. It was a new and fun adventure.”
