[VIDEO] Can you picture yourself in Bali? + Stories from GLA staff member travels, and a special opportunity: Help us design our next program in Brazil, Cambodia, Cuba, Guadeloupe, Morocco or the Philippines. We’re in a summer state of mind...
Global Leadership Adventures Newsletter - Experience GLA

Sometimes travel gets you a lot more than you bargained for. Last week, GLA students in Tanzania were signed up to learn about wildlife on a safari, but got an unexpected opportunity to meet Dr. Jane Goodall, the wildlife whisperer herself. A redirected flight for our students in China turned into a bonus trip to see the city of the Terracotta Warriors. Our point? Lauren, GLA alum, sums it up nicely: "You can never anticipate exactly what will happen on program, but I learned that I can safely assume we'll have tons of fun if we simply go with the flow."

[video] Bali: A Day in the Life
This group from Bali: Land of Discovery took travel journaling to the next level when they started also editing and posting daily videos. See a day in the life, from the student perspective! Service in the morning, beach adventures in the afternoon, followed by evenings of lesson planning, leadership sessions and inside jokes.

Meet GLA Group Travel Manager Tim Easley
Basically, we all want to be Tim when we grow up: When he’s not trekking in Nepal or leading service-learning programs in Tanzania, he’s downhill skiing in his home state of Colorado and helping school groups prepare for their custom trips abroad with GLA Group Travel. Tim tells his best stories and shares travel advice in this article.

Question of the Month

“I’d love a GLA T-shirt, hoodie or water bottle. Do you have a store?” Yes, we do! We love seeing our alumni sport their blue shirts and other GLA gear to commemorate their time abroad long after summer’s over. You’ll find organic tees, tri-blend zip hoodies and even a “Pura Vida” T-shirt for our Costa Rica alumni.
