Lake Shore High School’s European Adventure 2014

ANGOLA?- Last month, 89 students from Lake Shore High School left their classrooms and went on a 12-day trip to Europe.

The annual tour over February break was organized by high school French teacher Stan Moore.

The students had the opportunity to view history first-hand by visiting many famous sites in Greece and Italy and to experience the culture in each country.

Students tried many new foods and learned cultural practices and basic greetings in Greek and Italian.

Highlights of their time in Greece included touring the Acropolis in Athens and the Temple of Apollo in Delphi and experiencing a traditional Greek dinner and dancing.

After saying goodbye to Greece, students boarded an overnight ferry to Italy.

In Italy, students took a tour of Florence, the city famous for being the birthplace of the Renaissance. Many of them climbed over 400 steps to the top of the Duomo.

After Florence, the group went to Rome where they visited the Colosseum, Trevi Fountain and the Vatican.

During the last days of the tour, students took a tour of Pompeii and traveled by boat to the island of Capri.

Students returned home with unforgettable memories and a better understanding of other cultures.
