Wonderful 2 weeks in Peru - focused exploration

My daughter spent two weeks in Peru on Rustic Pathways. The pre-trip preparation with RP was amazing - hands down the most sophisticated and thoughtful online application process I have ever encountered. The information given was thorough and practical. My daughter was well prepared. They also provided pre-trip suggestions for her to interview people in her local community about issues related to her program. Once in country, I was never worried about her. RP kept me informed as needed and upon her return, the experience is her own - sharing pictures and anecdotes, but internalizing her experience and planning her next adventure with service and purpose. She loved this critical issues program - the emphasis on learning and helping was a grounding part of her experience. She loved being more than a tourist and Rustic Pathways certainly made this possible in a professional and exciting way.
