往届学生的感言 & 老师
"WARNING: This message is meant ~totally~ as a means to encourage you, 父母, 想想加入这个乐趣的可能性, 我是说很有趣, 与十大正规买球平台教会高中团体的欧洲冒险!
“我的头看起来很大吗??” That is what I felt like asking people after we arrived back home from 欧洲 this past June 2018. I was sure my head looked physically larger with all the new knowledge, learning and experience we had encountered in the previous 10-days traveling to Spain, 法国和英国. 我们玩得多开心啊!
我不会说我们的"西部之子", 现在是12年级的学生, 当他和WE签约的时候很激动吗. 但是你知道吗?? 事情并不总是和他们有关，对吧? We easily disregarded his suggestion that we ‘stay home’ and in fact we even packed up his little brother, 现在在韦斯特读九年级, 把他带来了, 太! 你知道? 就像家庭度假一样? I could feel my senior roll his eyes just now as I typed that.
Leaving the country to travel is ~not~ something that we would naturally do on our own. To have this trip all arranged, planned, plotted, and guided for us was extremely “sweet”! The only thing that would make it better would be to have it paid for, 太! Ha! 但, you only live once and you can’t take it with you… I think I’ve heard phrases like that at times in my life.
在欧洲的这段时间里，我们经历了很多事情! 一个人从哪里开始? 在西班牙我们看到了一座城堡, 普拉多博物馆, 去看弗拉门戈舞者, 吃西班牙餐前小吃，甚至看了一场真正的斗牛!
In Paris we saw the Mona Lisa and many other famous pieces of art, 我在艺术家区待了一天, 蒙马特和大教堂, 乘船游览塞纳河的美景, ate Crêpes and escargot and… let’s see if THIS passes your ‘smell test; we even toured the SEWER of Paris!
My personal highlight was also in Paris… having ~op~ to photograph and climb the Eiffel Tower. In fact, it was on one day in Paris that my FitBit registered 30,000 steps. That, after making that daunting, exciting, exhilarating climb up the tower.
For the final leg of our trip we 太k the Train at 200 mph from Paris to London. 在伦敦，我们在伦敦塔度过了一段时光, 乘公共汽车游览了这个城市, 参观了大英博物馆, 欣赏风景秀丽的泰晤士河, 去了白金汉宫, 我看到大本钟完全被脚手架遮住了, 狼吞虎咽地吃鱼 & 薯片，事实上吃了好几次! 美味的!
旅行过得很快! 从我们的第一次~雾蒙蒙的哦不!-what-have-we-done~ dis-embarkment from the plane in Madrid… to the horrific realization that “We need to keep up with this group of 19 KIDS!”… settling in to realize it wasn’t all that bad… to the phenomenal experiences!... 时间过得很快! 比时速200英里的欧洲之星还快!
至于我们的儿子，他不希望我们一起去旅行? 他也接受了我们在那里的事实. And although we spent very little time with him… he was off with his friends… we DID see him each morning when he came in search of money. So, 最后, he probably actually appreciated that his own personal bankers were along on the trip." ——朗达·布罗伯格(Rhonda Broberg, 2018年)
