A picture is worth a thousand words, so I'll let my pictures do the talking! I will say... As a person that has always wanted to see more of the world and travel outside of the country, this was an excellent opportunity. I want to express my thanks to the wonderful teachers that went with our group as well as my fellow students. You ALL are awesome, I enjoyed getting to know you and experience new places and culture with you all. Thank you for reminding me not all high schoolers are jackasses. To our new friends from Louisiana, it was great meeting you all and exploring Europe with you guys! Also, thank you to my parents for letting me go. Finally, thank you to our incredible tour guide, David, of EF Tours. He held this trip together and did a fantastic job organizing everything. I sure will miss following his umbrella with the flag of Great Britain on it around Europe.
