Summer Travel Programs for Teens: Get Out and Explore the World
It's never too early to plan for next summer. In Reality Gold, one of the character's next adventure is a community service trip working with sea turtles in Costa Rica. That program really exists, and there are plenty more like it: hike Mt. Kilimanjaro, skydive in Fiji, work with elephants in Thailand, study whales in Australia…if only these things existed when I was younger. Well, I probably would have said no thanks and read a book instead, but still! It would have been nice to have the option. But if you're more adventurous than I was, and this sort of summer travel/service/adventure is for you, here are some great programs to look into.
So You Want To Be A Star?
Every time a reality show comes on tv, I spend half the show wondering how the contestants even knew how to audition for the show in the first place. Various family members swear if only they knew how to audition, they'd be on that baking show, building fires on that survival show or running naked and unafraid through the woods. I never believe them, so if they ever decide to prove me wrong, I found a list of casting sites for all kinds of reality shows. As for me, no thank you. I'll just bring my laptop and observe.
