Just do it!

My experience traveling with Evolve Tours was incredible, eye opening, and life changing. The itinerary was well thought out, and the guides were awesome and made the trip unforgettable. During my trip, I was introduced to a whole new world and my perspective of the planet, the environment, and the people who live here changed drastically.  I learned about the devastating effects of the palm oil industry, painted a church, painted a school, learned Spanish, went camping, and played with the kids who lived in the village. I grew very much as a person and made lifelong friendships with not only my classmates and guides, but with people from all over the world.

Taking that year off between high school and college was one of the best decisions that I have ever made. The knowledge I gained about myself and the world around me was more than anything I could have learned in a classroom. Many of the wonderful experiences I had on my year off were because of Evolve Tours. I learned valuable knowledge and life lessons on my year off that are not only applicable to my every life, but to my studies in Zoology as well.

The Evolve GAP program is a wonderful, eye opening adventure and you will learn so much about yourself, others, and the world around you. Not only will you directly benefit from the program, but you will make connections that will last a lifetime. It will open many doors and lead you to places you never thought you would go. Take the step, be brave and go out of your comfort zone because I promise you will not regret it!
