Summer 2019I like to travel. Period. As a French teacher I look for opportunities to learn about and see new places, to create new memories and friendships. This past summer included working for #Makwa Travel, a tour operator based out of Montreal that connects with French tour companies who bring teens over to learn about the U.S. It was an awesome fun experience!

For two weeks, 16 days to be more precise, working with 24 French teens and #Telligo France, myself and three other guides explored the desert Southwest, including L.A., Lake Havasu, The Grand Canyon, Monument Valley, Bryce Canyon, Las Vegas, Death Valley, Yosemite and finally San Francisco. We camped, we hiked, we shared stories, we ate great food(and lots of bad food). I have been working with teenagers and tour groups for most of 13 years, this group was an amazingly curious, super respectful and fun group to guide for. This experience also showed me how awesome it would be to bike and tour in the Southwest…..the ideas are already flowing.
