And if i have my research wrong, and there are colleges i can study travel and tourism in, can you please tell me. Thank you. I would prefer going to California but really i don't mind.
In The US, travel and tourism is typically, at most, a 2 year degree - something that you would find in a junior college, and often is is listed as the Hospitality industry, not travel and tourism. Most people in the travel industry work their way up. You might want to work on a cruise ship - it's grueling work, long hours, lousy pay, but it's a way in. Besides, it is a good way to discover a little about tourist destinations first hand. I've worked as a travel agent for about 8 years, and I went to a 4 month course at a local travel school. I've made an effort to travel as much as possible, meet locals and get to know popular destinations inside and out. I've learned a lot over that time, made quite a few contacts, and I'm planning, by year's end, to open my own tour company - as the owner and operator - specializing in travel to the US Virgin Islands. I'm a lot older than you, so give it time, but it is one of the few industries that has consistent growth. Good luck.

Smile Hannibal

I live in Hannibal and I love it here But the economy isnt doing so well at all. All the city cares about in my opinion is tourism and thats not a good thing we need new businesses like pet store, skating rink, big dance club and stuff. (entertainment) now that tourist season is among us the economy will grow a bit but not much. If there is anyone that wants to open a business or expand or somthing i want you to consider US. i want to open my own business but im only 17 so i kinda impposible

Michigan State University has a good travel school, but I think it's geared more towards hotels.

As far as being part of the in flight crew, I think that most airlines train their own people and you could contact each airline you are interested in to find out what the requirements are.
