Our first adventure begins in Chamonix, France, the closest city to Mont Blanc, which is the highest mountain in the alps.  Chamonix held the first winter Olympics in 1924, giving it an important place in the history books. Chamonix offers not only skiing, snow boarding, and mountain climbing, but also many bike riding trails, hiking, horseback riding, and man-made caves to explore.    

Our next stop is Vienna, which is the capital of Austria and is known as the "city of music" since its home to some of the world's greatest composers ,such as Mozart, Strauss, and Beethoven. We will visit the Wurstelprater, which is the oldest amusement park in the world, and the Naschmarkt, which is Vienna's world famous farmers market that offers fresh food and ready made meals from all over the world.    

Our last stop is The Azores Islands, which is a special destination for paragliding.  The nine islands that make the Azores Archipelago belong to Portugal and are all of volcanic origin.  The islands are best known for whale and dolphin watching and also offer 600 species of fish, including sharks, mantra rays, and string rays.  Dive down deep enough, if you dare, and you can also explore ship wrecks!!
