The Essential Guide to Smart Travel. Anne teaches the secrets of packing light and smart, and makes packing fun! Her tips help savy and experienced traveler’s alike pack for any trip; from weekend getaways to lengthy European vacations.
International Towne students and families could learn a lot from Anne McAlpin’s presentation at the AAA Expo since she started her obsession for traveling as a student herself! Anne learned to pack lightly from her first trip abroad – a student bike trip across Europe when she was 16. “We had to pack everything we needed for six weeks in our bike bags,” she recalls. “When you have to carry everything yourself, it really makes you cut-down on what you pack.”
During their day in International Towne, middle school students aren’t packing their bags just yet, but they gaining a hands-on lesson in global economics, thanks to AAA Colorado.
