A trip to Europe promises fun and food
A trip to Europe is the opportunity of a lifetime for some students who want to get in some real experience with the languages they learned in the countries that officially speak them.
Spanish teacher Ms. Mindi Neiswanger has led similar trips many times, and her favorite moments have stayed consistent.
“As a Spanish teacher, I am most looking forward to our time in Spain. We’ll be going to Barcelona. I’ve been there before; the last trip we took, two Spring Breaks ago, we went there, and it was just so much fun. It’s very artsy and contemporary,” she said.
Sightseeing is not the only activity they do on the trip. Travelers also get to try different games and foods.
“I do love Spanish cuisine. That’s one of the things we are going to do is try a lot of different foods there,” Ms. Neiswanger said.
The trip includes a few different countries and many different destinations. Junior Kyle Winger remembers his favorite county and the best view he saw the whole trip, two years ago.
“My favorite part was Switzerland because of the views,” said. “Walking outside the hotel you could see just the mountains and the sunset.”
Junior Evan Strauch also remembers his favorite part of the trip: sites he had heard about in a classroom right before his eyes.
“My favorite part was a lot of the historical landmarks,” Strauch said “I can’t remember the name of it, and we went to the bullfighting ring in Madrid.”
The cost of the trip $3,769, but once people look at all it includes, it is a pretty good deal. The trip will begin with an overnight flight into Barcelona, where they will stay for two days. Then a day in Provence and two days in Nice. They will then head to Montecatini, Italy for a day, and then to Rome for two days before their departure back to the U.S.
“This trip is going to be in three different European countries. We’ll be starting out in Spain, going through the south of France and into Italy,” Ms. Neiswanger said.
