Senior Troop 1750 of Denver thanks all their Girl Scout cookie customers for helping them realize their dream of visiting Europe. In 10 short days during late June, the girls visited Dublin, Wales, London and Paris through an EF Girl Scout tour. The Colorado troop traveled with two other troops from Seattle and Virginia.
Girl Scout highlights included enjoying a cream tea at the Pax Lodge in London, and also having the opportunity to meet a Girl Guide troop while waiting in line for the London Eye. The Colorado girls are building an e-relationship with the English troop via email.
During their trip, the members of Troop 1750 mastered a range of transportation modes – plane, ferry, bus, train and subway. They learned to travel internationally…and they did not lose their passports or debit cards!
Most fun? Eating fruit-filled crepes under the Eiffel Tower at midnight.
Just a few photos – the girls outside Verailles gates; in the gardens of Anne Hathaway’s family home (Shakespeare’s wife) near London; 13th Basingstoke Guides and Brownies waiting for the London Eye.
