I’m starting this fund in an effort to expand my horizons and educate myself, first hand, on Europe’s history – the kind you learn beyond the text book.
My plan is to travel next summer to Italy and work my way to Germany via train or another transportation service. I’m eager to walk in the same footsteps as the great Caesars, and explore the over 2,000-year-old Coliseum. I can’t wait to stand next to the statue of David in Florence after reading so much about Michelangelo’s masterpiece. When we get to Germany, I’m looking forward to visiting Berlin and learning about the hundreds of bombings during World War II. It would be great to see the famous 19th century Neuschwanstein Castle not far from the capital of Germany, Munich. I’m eager to see and learn as much as I can!
The $4,000 will help me buy my plane ticket, cover hotel and food costs, help with transportation fees and the excursions. I’m currently working two jobs and saving as much as I can for this trip, but I will have to lessen my hours when college classes begin again in the Fall.
I would really appreciate your help in getting me to Europe. Thank you in advance for your donation! Every amount helps make this a reality.
