After nearly a full year of planning we took 18 scouts and 11 adults to
Europe! The trip took 10 days to execute, leaving Sunday, August 24th
and returning late on Tuesday, September 2nd.
We took thousands of photos, and hours of movies, only a subset of
which managed to make it onto these pages. Nearly everybody
provided their own personal thoughts about
the trip, and one even shared his daily journal
We cooked our own food when possible, and
livened things up by having a ping pong match
with our bus driver and new friend, Flo.
Our travels took us through countless
churches (a scout is reverent), a BMW museum
(as if the fancy cars on the streets weren't
enough), and even to where the world famous
Oktoberfest is held every year. There was a lot of
silliness and camaraderie, a lot of
smiles, and even a couple of
frowns, all of which we've shared here.
It was exhausting, but worth it in every
way you can measure it.
Would we do it all again?
