There were teachers in my high school who planned a trip to Europe for students every year. It wasn’t associated with the school or any group and was just a trip that we could sign up for. My Junior year the trip was to Italy and most of my friends and I signed up for the trip. We traveled during spring break (March 2001) and hit all the high points of Italy like Venice, Rome, Florence, Capri, Pompeii, etc. It was an amazing trip and I still have wonderful memories of it. Here we were at the Coliseum!
And, just in case Rachel happens to read my blog, Happy Birthday! She’s the one on the far right and today is her birthday!
