Europe 2017 is a group of 11 graduating seniors who want to learn about the world before they head to college. Ovaska has been leading this trips since 2012. “It has been an honor to share these trips with young adults just as they launch into the world. My former travelers really have become citizens of the world. Many in my first group just graduated from college and almost all of them studied abroad or did work that connected them to the bigger world.”
This year’s tour is 11 days in Switzerland, Italy, and France. Students will explore the Alps, see the wonders of Venice, experience the ancient history and culture of Rome and the Vatican, and adventure along the French Riviera. http://www.eftours.com/educational-tour/switzerland-italy-france
