Four Countries, Ten Cities, a Million Memories, and a Lot of Laughs! – European Escapade


Wow! We can’t believe that it is the last day of our trip. We guess what they say is right, “Time flies when you’re having fun.”

As soon as we got to Florence, we participated in a cooking class. Homemade pasta with tomato sauce, spinach crepes, zucchini with mushrooms, bruschetta and orange cake were on the menu. Delicious is an understatement. The past few days we have been enjoying the beaches of coastal France. The beaches of Cannes are surrounded by mountains and are a beautiful site to see. Andrea, Erica, Rose and Elayna swam out to a floating dock and soaked up the rays in the ocean.

 Later that night, we headed over to Monaco for some dinner and a night stroll. We were all on the lookout for celebrities; Kianna and Dillan were convinced that they were going to see Donatello Versace!

After four countries, ten cities, a million memories, a bunch of laughs (especially from Jake and Ryan), lots of food, a ton of sites and tons of new friends later, our trip has come to a conclusion.

The staff of the European Escapade would like to thank all the trip members for an incredible three weeks. We hope you have enjoyed your time in Europe and take these memories with you for the rest of your life!

With love,
Amy, Liz, Andy and Matt
