AOLG recent graduates and students made their way around Europe with EF Tours this past June. Tour director, Ana Fernandez, led the girls, along with some parents and chaperones and another small student group throughout the 25 day trip. Students visited London, Amsterdam, Brussels, Paris, Heidelberg, Munich, Tyrol, Florence, Rome, Barcelona, and Madrid. Academy senior Jaycie Chan noted the highlight of the trip, "We saw Pope Francis! It was a last minute thing. We didn't know we would be able to until the day before. We happened to have our free day in Rome on a Wednesday, when he has the papal audience." Other highlights include a night of theatre- watching "Wicked" in London, touring a cheese farm where the farmer also makes wooden shoes in Amsterdam, taking a night river cruise on the Seine in Paris, walking through the Neuschwanstein Castle in Bavaria, and celebrating the feast of San Juan on the beach at sunset and a bicycle tour in Barcelona.
If any Academy students are interested in joining the tour next summer, please listen for announcements or contact Mr. Blaszczak or Ms. Pangelinan.
