It was a blur of activity for the large group of PWK high school students who spent their spring break traipsing around Europe.

Every other year, the school runs a Travel Club, allowing the students to experience life outside of the small community of Fort Smith.

“It was a trip of a life time,” said Ryan Evans, 16.

After months of fundraising for their trip with auctions and sales, this year’s lucky batch spent 12 days on an educational tour through London, Paris and Venice, Rome, Pompeii and Capri, Italy.

With a total of 37 tourists, including chaperones, this marked the school’s second largest group to make their way around the globe.

Despite some soggy springtime weather, the students had a blast cavorting around Trafalgar Square, taking selfies at the Hall of Mirrors in Versailles, and riding a gondola to the top of Capri where they were met with a stunning view of the Gulf of Naples.

After being bitten by the travel bug, some of the young adventurers said they are already itching to set out on their next excursion.
