My Travel Experience Essay
People might say their summer going into freshman year of college was the best of their life because they graduated high school and are excited to start a new chapter in their life where they have more freedom and control in everything they do. Although this pertains to me, this summer was the best of my life for another reason. From June 26th to July 6th I went on a school trip to Italy and made countless lifelong memories. My entire life I always aspired to go to Italy and this summer I finally got to fulfill that dream. The trip is done every year by one of the Italian teachers at my high school, Mr. Grillo. Every summer he takes the newly graduated students who took Italian all four years of high school on this life changing trip. This year around 50 kids went, most of them being my friends and kids I grew up with my whole life. It was so special to be able to experience such a one in a lifetime occurrence with them.
Throughout the whole Italy adventure, we went to so many beautiful and famous places that I thought I’d never get the chance to see in person. The places we went to were Rome, Sorrento, Sicily, Amalfi Coast, Positano, and Capri. From the beautiful tourist attractions of Rome like the colosseum and The Vatican to the clear, blue, glowing waters of the Amalfi Coast and Capri everywhere we went in Italy was as breathtaking as the next. My favorite part of the trip was the boat ride to Capri. Some of the pictures and sights that I witnessed from that boat ride are unlike anything I had ever seen before. As the went from cave to cave you could see the greenish-blue glowing waters that were unlike anything anywhere else in the world. The best part about the boat ride was that we got to swim in sea around the island. The water was so clear you seem fish swimming everywhere around you if you wore goggles and ducked your head underwater. It was the best experience in my life up to this date and I would do anything to be able to do it again.
Going to Italy was something that I will always remember. It was such a good experience for me and it’s something I will always be grateful for. I got to travel all around the country to some of the most beautiful places in the world with some of my best friends. I wake up every day wishing I could relive that experience one more time because it was a life changing event for me. Whenever I make my mom angry she always jokes around with me and says, “Go back to Italy,” and every single time I respond with, “You don’t understand how much I wish that was possible.”
