The Prairie du Chien High School International Club had the experience of a lifetime this summer traveling to some of Europe’s main capitals: London, Paris and Rome. The nine-day trip started out with an eight-hour flight from Chicago O’Hare airport to London, where the students hit the ground running.
They met up with their tour guide, Richard, who had over 25 years of experience as a guide.
The students saw Trafalgar Square; Buckingham Palace, where they witnessed the changing of the guard; Kensington Palace, where Prince William and Kate reside; Big Ben; the Houses of Parliament; and Windsor Castle. While in London the students were able to dine on the popular fish and chips—the American equivalent is fish and french fries.
“My favorite memory was the opportunity to try a variety of appetizers, entrees, and desserts from different areas of Europe,” said Gunnar Kravchuk.
