I Love Travel Staff Reviews

Bailey Wells What can I say, there was not ONE downside to my role as a Trip Leader in sunny Cancun, Mexico. Thinking back to all the good times I had trouble narrowing down the highlights. Cancun was definitely a slice of Paradise! Even though it was hard getting used to the ridiculous humidity, the breathtaking beach and cool waves made up for it fast. Nothing is better than giving back to the community that so graciously hosts you. As a group, we visited a local orphanage and spent time with young children and teenagers.

Dee Flores I enjoy working with a team full of creatives of different skill sets, life experiences, and inspirations. The people inspire me to work harder, learn new things, and travel more! The people that I met during destination was really cool too - future doctors, lawyers, business owners, etc. I love the people that I met and I would have never met them if I didn't take this internship.

Michael Meehan I had the privilege of being the Photographer (aka 'Camera guy') at the Tryp hotel in Cayo Coco, Cuba during Summer Grad Trip. Part of what made this trip so good was the amazing staff I worked with. We had a great Program Director, fantastic Coordinators, a solid team of entertainers and enhancers, and the trip leaders made friends with everyone. I can’t wait to work with these all stars again.

Kyle Gorman Going into the trip I wasn’t entirely sure what to expect, but from the get go my mind-set was to talk to everybody, and try to relate to as many people as I can so the experience felt more genuine as opposed to coming off as a “chaperone”. My approach as a trip leader, as I had often said while on destination in the Dominican was to make sure everyone was having their trip of a lifetime, not for me to have a vacation. I ate as many (if not all) meals with our travelers, took lots of group photos and really tried to push myself out of my somewhat introverted comfort zone and talk to as many people as possible and really connect with them. I can confidently say that my group, and every other student I came across, were incredible individuals and a beyond enjoyable group to spend the week with! I’m so happy I got to experience staffing with S-Trip!, I understand why it is truly the #JobofaLifetime and I can’t wait to find out where I’ll go next.

Melissa Thanakone I love that the company is based around adventure and travel, but most importantly friendship. The camaraderie within the office is nothing I've experienced before - everyone is like one big family! The thing I also liked the most is that I don't think there was a day I came into the office and the vibes weren't good. No matter how stressful or busy it got, everyone was able to communicate with each other in a respectful/calm way and still get things done. Oh! and I also really liked the I love lunches and movie night outings, super fun and everybody was included.

Mark DeLuca Absolutely amazing! I have never met/ worked along a more eccentric group of young and enthusiastic employees than the people I met at ILT. Everyone is so passionate about what they do, and the company really does value a work-life balance. By having fun your employees will enjoy coming to work, and this was perfectly represented with ILT.

Kerrin Cochrane HIIII just wanted to say a big thanks to everyone who made the Dominican Adventure possible and AMAZING, it's been almost a week since leaving the Barcélo and I've been itching to get out and discover more. This was my first trip as a TL and although it felt a little overwhelming at times, it was a life changing experience and I loved hearing that I had personally changed a students life I've been bit hard by the S-Trip! bug and I admire all your incredible leadership qualities, hard work and energy throughout the trip and I can't wait to continue to grow and experience more adventures with y'all!

Emma Petrakis Working in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic gave us a million amenities at our disposal. One of the best things that I experienced every day was doing beach rounds. Watching everyone on the beach put a smile on my face. By the ocean is one of my favourite places to be, so to do beach rounds was something that I never took for granted. Walking up and down the beach and realizing that these students enjoyed it as much as I did, or were taking advantage of where they were in the world really put a smile on my face.

Katrina Sands This March Break I was lucky enough to staff my very first S-Trip! to the beautiful Cayo Coco, Cuba. It was a relief to meet other students who also spoke to me about their nerves while they prepared to take their first parent-free vacation. But everywhere I turned, people were helping each other out. as a staff member, I feel that I am walking away from the best week of my life with some great, long term friends.

Linda Tran Honestly, I can only explain this experience in one word – EPIC. March break in Cayo Coco was probably the best experience I’ve had in the Caribbean’s. As a travel addict myself, I don’t think I have been able to experience so much energy and love in one place. Everyday was filled with students on the beach tanning, playing volleyball and just hanging out. I think the best part of this trip was just slowly seeing groups of schools slowly merging into one big family. Honestly, words still can’t describe how amazing this trip to Cayo Coco was. Not only did we throw the most fun night events, we actually were part of something unforgettable. Celebrating your senior year with your school may be one thing but celebrating it with lots of other Students in Cuba is a whole different experience all on its own.

Anna Iwanyshyn I was thrilled to find out that I was staffing the 2012 North Coast Dominican Republic Trip during Spring Break!!! Nothing like re-living my grad trip that I had gone on 5 years ago! However, this trip definitely took it to a different level of fun and adventure. S-trip sent 215 students to the Allegro Playa Dorada all inclusive resort which was only one of the many in the area that was occupied with energetic and amazing students!
