Myself, my friend Helen and my friend Sam.
Next summer I will be finishing high school and myself and three friends have planned an amazing trip to Europe. It includes a week in Spain, a week in France, a week in Italy, a week in Croatia and a week in Greece. It's going to be the most amazing adventure! We are backpacking and living in hostels. None of us have ever done anything like this! We are trying to get a flavour of each city we are staying in, a sense of the cultures and we hope to meet amazing people.
WHY FUND ME
Since I'm also saving money for university, fundraising is a great way to fund my trip while allowing me to save for my expenses after secondary school. I'm a hard worker and have been working very hard to save money for this trip. I worked all of my grade 11 year of high school.
WHY SPAIN,FRANCE,ITALY,CROATIA AND GREECE?
We've tried to stay clear of big cities, minus barcelona, because I am not a city girl. I love to be by the water and that is principally why we chose Croatia and Greece. We chose Spain because of the amazing culture, architecture and language. I'm fascinated by languages, and Helen and I are even taking spanish throughout the year so that we will be somewhat familiar with the language when we get there. France was chosen because it is such a beautiful country. I speak french and I love any excuse to be able to practise it. Italy we've simply jumped into. We've heard such amazing things about the sights and the food but we don't quite know what to expect from this.
We're looking forward to GOOD FOOD, GREAT PEOPLE and BEAUTIFUL SIGHTS.
But most of all, the ADVENTURE OF A LIFETIME.
