- Assisi, Florence, Milan, Pompeii, Rome, Sorrento, Vatican City, Venice,
In my grade 11 summer, 15 of my best friends and I took part in an educational tour called The Grand Tour of Italy. The tour was prepare and operated by a company called EF Tours. Travelling to Italy was the first time I had ever left the continent, and saying I was excited was an understatement. My experience travelling through Italy with my peers was a life changing and it showed me that their are so many ways to learn outside of the classroom that I had never once considered.

Where to Next?
I have always had a strong interest in backpacking through Europe. My dream would be to take off for a year or two and cover the entire continent – staying with friends and in hostels while experiencing the history that makes Europe so famous.
Travelling through Europe has been something I have always seen myself doing when I was a bit older. Being able to understand and appreciate the deep history and culture in some of the European countries will come with age and I plan on starting my journey in a few years. This gives me adequate time to start planning, and finding a friend who would like to accompany me for a portion of my adventure.
