Oh the places you'll go...

We packed our bags, got on a plane, and fourty people travelled from Canton, Missouri to London, Paris, and England. The trip was 12 days long but seemed like a blur because we were taking part in nonstop activity and digging deep into the European culture. I had a great time on the trip, learned so much about history and culture, and will never forget some of the amazing things I was able to see and experience.

The last stop on the trip was in Rome, and was my favorite city along the way. Italy is a beautiful country full of excitement and rich in it's Roman history. The city of Rome had so much to offer, and I continued to be amazed by all of the things we were able to do.

The first stop we made was at the famous Colosseum, and the massive historical structure did not disappoint the expectations that I had. It was a beautiful building and I was amazed that it was built so long ago. It is truly a testament to the ability and intelligence of the ancient Romans. After going to the Colosseum, we made our way to the Roman forum which depicted the lifestyles of the Romans when they were in their prime. We finished the first day in Rome by making wishes in the Trevi Fountain.

Other sights that we visited in Rome included the Victor Emmanuel Memorial, the Pantheon, and the Spanish Steps. I loved the laid-back lifestyle of the Italians and the food was amazing! I am very thankful for the opportunity to take this trip and I can't replace the memories that I made during my time in London, Paris, and Rome.
