This March I was fortunate to be a chaperone on the school travel club’s trip to Italy. It was the first one we had ever taken and I knew it was an experience of a life time. For months leading up to the trip I didn’t think I would be able to go. Simply because I didn’t know if I could leave Ella and I am not the best flyer. But as Nate and my parents said, it was a chance of a lifetime. So I went.
After long plane rides and long layovers (Calgary – Toronto – Frankfurt – Naples) we landed in Naples and immediately began our adventure. Herculaneum and Pompeii were amazing to see, I can’t believe how they were buried under ash from Mount Vesuvius. Then we were off to Rome for a couple of days. My head is still spinning from all we saw in Rome. The Colosseum, Imperial Rome, the Spanish Steps, Circus Maximus, the Vatican, and 5 or 6 Basilicas. On our way to Florence we made a stop in Assisi. I had the best time in Florence, we were given some free time to go around and explore and the group of girls I was with was amazing. Loved them. From Florence we went to Jesolo and would take a water taxi to Venice. Venice was so busy as it was Good Friday the day we were there, but what a place it is. I was terrified about getting lost.
I saw things I never thought I would ever get to see in my lifetime.
