Life Changing Experiences

Group Jokes and Lasting Memories- ONTOUR European Experience


After the relaxation of Florence, we all continued on through Italy on our way to our final stop: Nice. On the way, we stopped in Pisa for a view of the Leaning Tower, dined in Monaco and explored the area around Monte Carlo. For our final day together, we got to explore Nice, go tubing in the ocean and finish our great day at a group dinner.

Now our trip has finally come to a close. The last 28 days have flown by as we have all gotten to know each other while having experiences together that we know will be with us always. Moreover, we have all made friendships to last a lifetime.

To finish our journey, we all wanted to share a few words about our trip together, which we hope you all enjoy. And don’t worry… if you don’t quite get the joke now, you’ll be brought up to speed when we get home and share our stories with you.

Ciao for now, and see everyone soon.
