California Girl Scouts Touring Europe

Girl Scouts of San Gorgonio Council's Blog reports that largely due to money earned from cookie and fall product sales, Girl Scouts of San Gorgonio Troop 593 were able to travel to Europe. The fourteen girls and 6 leaders spent two weeks exploring London, Paris, Rome and Munich.

"A history previously only known through textbooks sprung to life as they visited sites once inhabited by artists, writers, politicians and other famous figures," writes Juno Kughler Carlson. "One girl was thrilled to visit the home of her favorite author, Nathanial Hawthorn. Another girl with an AP in art history gasped and cried when she saw Raphael's painting, "The Mass at Bolsena" in Rome for the first time. A World War II history buff was excited to visit the Winston Churchill War Rooms in London."

Where in the world has Girl Scouting taken you?
