Jackson Hole





















Just over 5 years ago, when those beautiful, beautiful people at STA Travel selected me as one of their two World Traveler Interns for the summer of 2011, I knew my life would change. I knew I was about to be taken through an unforgettable set of experiences. I knew I would come back with a string of memories that would stay a part of me for life. But I had not a clue to what extent.

Dutch was a complete stranger to me at the time. We literally met face to face for the very first time in Charles de Gaulle airport in Paris. He flew in from Colorado. I, from New York. To be totally honest, I was nervous. It terrified me to envision spending so much time with this person. Three and a half months enduring the highs, lows, and in-betweens of travel with a guy I knew hardly anything about. What if we had nothing in common? What if we got sick of one another? Or worse... What if he didn't get my humor?!

Five and a half years later I can confidently tell you, with tears welling up in my eyes as I type this, that I would not give up this friendship for anything. Not a thing.

I don't know how they did it, but somehow, those nice folks at STA Travel paired me up with one of the greatest humans I've ever come to know. 

There's nothing I could ever do for them that would measure up to how much they changed my life that summer. All I can do is express my gratitude... and put a little spotlight on them so that you may think of them when you start to plan a future trip. 

Dutch and I went on a bunch of different group tours as part of the internship -- y'all can meet so many awesome people that way. Maybe you wanna do a lil tour through Costa Rica? Peru? Thailand?? We did Southeast Asia and it was raaaaaad. Whatever you book, you should use their airfare deposit program which will save you lots of $$$. ;)

I want to give a huge gigantic ridiculous thank you to my STA Travel peeps for hooking it up on the trip I just took to see Dutch in Wyoming. I totes recommend booking with them on your next big thang. They might just change your life, too.

Ps. Dutch... ILY forever. Bye.

  3. Testimony on how i got my LOAN from fundingloanplc@yahoo.com

    I'm Isabella Tyson from 1910 N Halsted St Unit 3, Chicago IL60614 USA,, i have been searching for a genuine loan company for the past few months and all i got was bunch of scams who made me to trust them and at the end of the day took my money without giving anything in return, all hope was lost i got confused and frustrated, i find it very difficult to feed my family and vowed never to have anything to do with loan companies on net and went to seek of assistance from a very good friend which i explained all my experience regarding online companies with and said he can help me that he knows of a Godsent and well known company called FUNDING CIRCLE PLC, he stated he just got a loan from them although i was still very unsure about this company due to my past experience but i decided to give it a try and did as i was directed by my friend and applied, i never believed but i tried and to my greatest surprise i received my loan in my bank account within 24 hours, i could not believe that i would stand on my feet financially again. I’m glad I took the risk and applied for the loan and today i'm thanking God that such loan companies still exist and promise to share the good news to people who are in need of financial assistance because the rate of scams on net is getting very serious and i don't want people to fall victim when we still have genuine and Godsent lenders.. You can contact this Godsent company using the information as stated and be a partaker of this great testimony.. Email: fundingloanplc@yahoo.com OR Call/Text +14067326622 thanks
