"When I was 16 years old, it was announced that my high school choir would be taking a tour of Luxembourg, France and Switzerland. My parents said: 'If you can pay for it, you can go.' And thus began my early career as a Subway sandwich artist. Every dime earned went straight into my piggy bank, and by June I was boarding a plane to Lucerne. The first hour of my trip was enough: I was absolutely hooked. 17 years and 50 countries later, I can say that that first tour changed my life. It is only fitting that I now have the privilege of being able to help the new generation of world travelers have the same experience!"
