Each year Trinity Prep students have the chance to travel the world on one of many exciting trips led by our teachers. From photo documentary workshops in Southeast Asia to the tropical beaches of Fiji, there is no horizon we won’t chase.

Trinity Prep Travel | Upcoming Trips

Iceland 2020

Iceland is a country so singular and environmentally diverse, you might as well be on a different planet. Join Mrs. Walker and Mr. Milsten on this private tour just for TPS students during Spring Break 2020 as we hike stunning fjords and waterfalls, boiling mud pots and geysers. On this tour, spanning from Reykyavik in the south to Akureyri in the north, we we will walk along the gap separating the two tectonic plates that Iceland covers, we will enjoy amazing culinary experiences, and we will end our tour with a relaxing visit to the Blue Lagoon. This adventurous trip will keep you moving, climbing, and hiking, all the while surrounded by views that don't seem of this earth. Email Mrs. Walker at walkerd@trinityprep.org for more information. 




Past Trips

 

Japan

In March of 2018, Mr. Milsten, Mrs. Walker, and Mr. McGimsey led 28 students on a historical and cultural tour of Japan. Beginning in the very modern and busy Tokyo, where they spent an afternoon with a Sumo wrestler, they filled their afternoons with exploration, and their evenings with delicious Japanese fare. The students traveled by speed train to Kyoto, finding it filled with Shinto shrines, Buddhist temples, imperial palaces, and mystic gardens.
 

Southeast Asia

Students captured the sights of Cambodia, Laos, and Vietnam on this traveling photo workshop. In Cambodia, they shot bustling Phnom Penh, experienced the intricate temples of Angkor Wat, and stayed in a floating village homestay. In Vietnam, they toured the city of Hanoi and its surrounding villages. In Laos they explored the beautiful town of Luang Prabang, gave alms to monks, and rode elephants — all while practicing their skills with professional photographers.
 

Turkey

The beauty of the Trinity Prep Istanbul trips lies in complete immersion. The students jump outside of tourist areas to eat with the Turks. Eating Iskender Kebob while sipping tea and listening to the call to prayer booming from hundreds of minarets surely reminds you that you aren't home. Turkish baths and eating baklava with every meal, all while enjoying the architecture of Byzantium and the Ottomans, are experiences that arrive once in a lifetime.
