London & Paris 2011
In May 2011, a group of 25 students, faculty, and community members traveled across the English Channel via the Eurostar train. The seven day tour began in London and ended in Paris. In London, travelers explored the Tower of London, Leicester Square, and the National Gallery. The group went on a cruise down the Thames River and a ride on the London Eye observation wheel. In Paris, travelers walked down the Champs-Elysees, traveled to the top of the Eiffel Tower, explored the Louvre, and visited the Notre Dame Cathedral. A trip to the Palace of Versailles was also an exciting experience.
