Spring Break Disasters

Dane Erickson, Junior

Q: Where did you go for Spring Break?

A: “I went on the Italy Trip for Choir”

Q: What Spring Break disaster happened to you?

A: “My flight to Italy got canceled and my whole group and chaperones were stranded in Atlanta for the night. A few of us decided to get a flight to Paris, and then fly to Rome. We couldn’t make our flight from Paris to Rome so we were stranded again.”

Q: What was it like to be stuck in another country?

A: “We were just sitting on the Paris airport floor with everyone else walking around around us. We saw pictures from what they were seeing in Italy which made us disappointed we weren’t with them.”

Q: What did you miss from the Italy Trip from your travel complications?

A: “We missed out on the concert at Chiesa di Ognissanti and All Saints Church, in Florence. And the exploring and sightseeing in Florence.”

Q: When did you finally get to Rome?

A: “We got on a flight the same day we got Paris. I carried my bags on with me, but the others checked their bags. Their bags ended up not making the flight with us.”
