Student Photo Gallery: Germany, France, Belgium

Fall 2013 Semester at Sea students are exploring Europe in a whirlwind while simultaneously capturing each culture through their own experiences and photos. Ranging in experiences both urban and rural, students opened their eyes and absorbed as much as they could in their sprints through Germany, France, and Belgium. This collection of images is a small sample from the SAS shipboard community.
