Over spring break, 40 or so members of the MacDuffie community went on a memorable guided tour of Spain and France. It seems like just yesterday that Mrs. Vachet and Mr. Hillman engaged in a playful “Spain vs. France” Assembly skit to kick off the trip’s information session!
In Spain, students, accompanied by faculty and staff chaperones, stayed in Madrid for several days. Sites included the Reina Sofia Museum, the Royal Palace, a cooking school evening, Madrid Stadium, and the Prado Museum as well as side trips to Segovia, El Escorial, and the Valley of the Fallen.
Next the group flew to France, where they spent a few days in Bayeux and explored nearby Mont St. Michel and the D-Day Normandy sites. From there the group traveled to Paris, where they saw nearby Versailles Palace, the Eiffel Tower (at night!), Notre Dame Cathedral, and the Louvre.
It was quite an adventure (and no word which country won in Spain vs. France…it must have been a tie). Scroll down to enjoy a few of the photos contributed by several travelers. Time to plan the next trip!
