Seeing Value in the Simple Life

GREECE, ITALY AND SPAIN

By Ilse Ramirez, DCIS-Montbello

P1030622I’ve seen many amazing things throughout my 17 years, but nothing has compared to this trip. My visit to Greece, Italy and Spain was unexplainable – never in my life did I imagine visiting different countries at such a young age. I was blessed to have been able to go on this amazing trip with the 4 girls that soon after became my best friends.

While I was over there I was exposed to different people and different cultures; I had to eat my pizza with a fork and knife! My favorite parts of the trip were the Greek Islands, Aegina, Poros and Hydra because I saw the simple life they lived – no cars, no phones. Something I got out of this trip was the fact that Americans are very spoiled compared to other countries, and we are lucky to have so many opportunities.
