Life Changing Experiences

A Final Goodbye… – Backpack France, Switzerland & Italy

Hello Friends and Family,

It’s that time of the summer, time to say our goodbyes.  Sorrento, Pompeii, Capri, Positano, and Rome were all amazing.  What a great way to end our trip.  Sorrento was so much fun.  We met up with Backpack Italy for Karaoke and had a great time, plus it was nice to make some new friends!  Mel was the first to perform with a trip member from Backpack Italy and they killed it.  Our first night in Sorrento we had a brilliant group dinner, probably the best of the trip and of course lots of gelato for Amanda W. afterwards.

Capri was amazing, it was great cooling off grottoes and the gardens were beautiful.  Hannah got some stunning and creative photos.  Positano was also very enjoyable, Carson, Dani, and Mel had the best time tanning and swimming, they really did not want to leave at the end of the day and could you blame them?

Finally our last stop, Rome the busiest part of our itinerary by far.  We saw a lot in two days had a toga party and said our goodbyes.  We couldn’t have asked for a better trip! Life long friendships were made and tons of memories.  Even more photos to go along with the experience of a lifetime our group had.  Thank you trip members for a great month backpacking, learning, and of course tons laughter.
