Germany, Austria, Switzerland & Lichtenstein ~ 1988 “TBT” Senior Trip

In the spirit of “Throw Back Thursday” I am posting my Senior 1988 High School trip to Europe. I’m trying to digitize my old albums that are yellowing and taking up space, so this works perfectly. Also, fellow classmates that went on the trip will probably enjoy seeing photos from our trip they never saw. The trip was for 10 days and we journeyed to Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Lichtenstein. Our English teacher, Mrs. Crenshaw was the trip coordinator and brave leader.
