So i just got back to school from spring break. For spring break students at Holy Cross do a few different things. Some students go home, other students participate in the Appalachia service trips. If you are a senior you are likely going on a senior class spring break trip with your friends. Punta Cana has been really popular with the seniors the past few years.
As for me I did something slightly different. I wen to LONDON and PARIS! It was amazing!! It was my first time ever in the UK/Europe and I saw so many incredible lank marks and sites. I visited Wesminster Abbey, Buckingham, Eiffel Tower, The Lourve, The National Gallery, and tons of other places.
Paris looked like I was transported into a renaissance and London looked like a fusion of parts of Boston and NYC of course with the royal monarchy everywhere! I’d have to say my favorite parts of the trip were definitely visiting Westminster and The National Gallery (a painting gallery). I know it sounds kind of dorky but being at Holy Cross, I had such an interest in the historical and cultural history of these places.
In the National Gallery, I saw the actual paintings of the artists I am studying in my Italian art history class. I also saw the tomb of Shakespeare and many kings in Westminster, which I have learned about through my Studies in World Lit major.
The trip was a huge success enjoy the pics!
