SPCC Cessnock's First French Study Tour

The trip to France this year was amazing!! It was 2 weeks full of fun and brand new experiences. I loved seeing all of the famous landmarks and visiting places I’d never been before.

Going to the top of the Eiffel Tower was definitely one of the highlights of the trip for me, the view from the top was amazing and then getting back down to the ground and watching it sparkle in the dark is something I’ll always remember.

I also really enjoyed going to the Loire Valley and visiting castles that were built such a long time ago. It was really cool walking through all of the different rooms because they still have the furniture that the French royalty would have used when they lived in the castles a very long time ago. 

...something I’ll always remember

It was really nice to see how quickly everyone on the trip bonded and became friends. We all got to know each other pretty early on in the trip and the longer we spent together the closer we all became.

Everything about this trip was very enjoyable and very memorable, even the little things like our sing-a-long sessions on the long bus trips, and eating baguettes in the middle of a round-a-bout after visiting Chateau de Versailles.

And I’m pretty sure none of us will ever forget the MIJE food (for those who weren’t on the trip, it was pretty bad). I think all of us came back with plenty of great stories to tell and a lot of amazing memories. I can’t wait to go back!
