Franklin County High School history club members are sponsoring a two-week trip to Europe next summer for anyone age 13 and up who wishes to travel abroad.
Wendy Snidow, a history teacher at FCHS, is organizing the trip. She has accompanied students to many different countries over the past 10 years.
Trips to Spain, Mexico, Italy, Greece and Turkey have all been educational for the students and adults alike, Snidow said.
"Some of the kids have never been past the Franklin County line, and this gives them a chance to really see the world and what's really going on and really see the history for themselves," she said.
The European Mosaic tour, which is through Education First Tours, begins June 27 and ends July 11. The tour includes round-trip flights, motorcoach, Eurostar high-speed train, 13 overnight stays in hotels with private bathrooms, daily European breakfast and dinner, a full-time tour director, eight sightseeing tours and six walking tours.
Tourists will visit London, Paris, Heidelberg, Munich, Salzurg, Vienna, Prague and Berlin, Snidow said.
"I went to Paris and London last summer, and it was very interesting," said Kelci Hall, a junior at FCHS. "It was a good experience because I really want to travel the world. It was a great first trip."
First time travelers are looking forward to experiencing other countries and cultures.
"I am really excited," said Natalie Shelton, a junior at FCHS. "I think it will be a great life experience before I go to college. It will be interesting to go to another country and experience their culture and compare it to ours."
Various fundraisers will be held to help finance the trip.
