Germany, Austria and Iceland Trip

Last week, Mr. Maragliano, Mr. McGrath, and a group of Oxford students returned home with great photos from this year's international trip. The group enjoyed eight days in Germany, Austria and Iceland. They toured Munich's unforgettable German, Bavarian, and World War II History, combined with a trip to the Dachau Concentration Camp. In Salzburg, the group viewed its great salt mines and the bucolic Alpine backdrop that makes it one of Europe's most beautiful cities. Finally, Iceland hot springs, lava fields, and glacier hike offered an optimal hands-on outdoors experience for everyone.

It was wonderfully memorable trip for all.
