Students involved with the International Travel Club will have the opportunity to take a 13-day trip to Scotland and Ireland in the Summer of 2019.

Instructor Lora Gallegos-Haynes has been a sponsor of trips like these since 2001. She has gone to Mexico, Costa Rica, London, Greece, Italy, Spain, France, Switzerland, and Morocco, sometimes, more than once. This will be the first year that she is not a sponsor.

“Any student is eligible to go if you have a C average or better, have not had an in-school suspension or an out of school suspension and have not been in trouble with the law,” Gallegos-Haynes said.

The trip will hit all around the countries of Scotland and Ireland. The contingent will get to visit ancient ruins and castles, view the sights of the country and its monuments, take a boat ride on Loch Ness where the infamous Loch Ness monster has been sighted multiple times and visit museums, like the Titanic museum.

The current price of the trip is $4900. The price includes two meals a day, all travel expenses, all entrance fees and all lodging, Gallegos-Haynes said. If you sign up before Oct. 1 2017 there will be a $100 discount.

A similar trip happened in June 2017. It was a trip to England, France, Italy and Greece. One student who went was junior Lindsey Pfannenstiel.

“I loved the trip,” Pfannenstiel said “I learned a ton. When I went there. I knew nothing about the places I was visiting. You come back with a different perspective.”

Pfannenstiel said that the contingent took lots of tours. They got to see the Eiffel Tower in Paris, the Trevi fountain, and the Colosseum in Rome to name a few.

“These trips give opportunities to students to see what they only see in textbooks,” Gallegos-Haynes said, “It will help them appreciate what they have here in the United States.”
