[slideshow]As we celebrated the Fourth of July this past week with celebrations of hot dogs and burgers, we sat back and recapped the past few weeks of summer. We realized that all of us here, while we are driven by crazy schedules and all go off in different directions every weekend, we still have complete common ground when it comes to why we are here, doing what we do.
Yes, we brag that our weekends are spent on the black sand beaches of Positano, Amalfi Coast, or perched up high in the Alps of Interlaken, Switzerland. And our jobs may look pretty selfish ( if we hear that we have the coolest job ever one more time, our egos may explode) but truly, we’re here for you, and because Bus2alps was here for us when we studied abroad.
We do this job for the travel, yes, but we do it to travel with people who love to travel as much as us. We do it to hear the whole bus ooh and ahh as we turn the last corner and see the lights of Sorrento cascading down to the ocean at two in the morning. To see the pride on the faces of those that just finished the hike to Monterosso al Mare in Cinque Terre. We love having you walk into Balmers with wet hair and a smile on your face as you start telling us how incredible canyoning was. We love seeing your eyes light up at the architecture of Prague, the sunset on the islands of Greece, and the taste of the prefect gelato in Rome or Florence. We love seeing a group from all over the country and from different schools coming together to play cards, kick a soccer ball around, and toast to new friends. JMU with FSU, the artists of SACI collaborating with the chefs of RMU. This is why we’re here. We do it to hear that famous line; “this has been the best day/weekend/week of my life.”
Our aim is to make your experience here even better than just studying in a foreign country, and allowing you to see sights you may never have the opportunity to see otherwise. We did it while abroad, and now we’re spreading the secret to making study abroad the best memories of your life with the best and fastest growing student travel company in Europe – your favorite – Bus2alps. Thank you for the memories that we’ve had so far. We can’t wait for those to come in the next few weeks.
