Aside from traveling to large monuments, the group will be exploring smaller areas of these famous ones. In Paris, you are permitted to explore the local art scene or even get a portrait done, or you can stroll through the life size village that was created for Marie Antoinette. We'll also be participating in a home stay in Vicenza Italy. A home stay is where we stay with a local family for a few days, and they teach us their culture and traditions. We stay at these homes for 3-4 days and really get to experience these families way of life.

In 79 A.D. Mt. Vesuvius did like most volcanoes and spit its ash and fire on the unsuspecting civilization around it. This spelled ruin for a near town, Pompeii. This eruption successfully terminated about 16,000 people. The town of Pompeii was obliterated and buried underneath massive pyroclastic flows and lava. The bodies of the people became encased in all of the debris and lava.

You can venture to Pompeii and see all of the destruction and aftermath. I myself will be climbing Mt. Vesuvius, an exciting opportunity. I will also be visiting the city of Pompeii. I am so excited to travel on this exodus.

Thank you for making all of this possible!!

There are so many beautiful and educational places we will get to go. This is another;

The Roman Colosseum is a tremendous amphitheater, the embodiment of both the grandeur and cruelty of the great Roman Empire. Capable of seating 50,000 spectators, the Colosseum hosted spectacular games that included gladiator exhibitions, fights between animals, prisoner executions and - strangely enough - naval battles. Untold thousands of humans and animals met their ends within one of these walls...

Hello friends, family, strangers :) I have signed up to participate in a people to people ambassador program this summer. I will be traveling with forty other students to represent our individual schools, we will learn about other cultures and help teach about our culture. We will be visiting places such as France, Greece and Italy. I have dreamed of being a foreign exchange student for years and this is as close as I can get, while still staying on track for graduation in 2016, please help make my dreams come true! Thank you in advance for your support!
