And as I said, I have had a few break off from their school tours and stay with me while living overseas, not just from America either. They just hated being shuffled around like cows all day.

17 is not a kid considering I have served along with 17 year olds in the military.

Should you go in Spain, France Greece and Italy because are the most amazing places in Europe (by my thought, of course!)
I've been in Italy and Spain:
Spain is very funny andthe people are friendly;
Italy depend in what place you must stay because in city like Rome, Milan and Florence it's all chaotic but there are many monuments to see,
in Venice or in other cities immersed in the green the people are very funny and polite.
Many friends tells me that france is very romantic and Greece offer many beautiful overview.
for the flight try to bring a tabloid or some books.
In italy should you go on a farmholiday because it's cheapper than hotel and it's more funny and interesting.
if you want more, ask me and i'm going to answer you .

I ran into so many from these school groups/tours, I have had a few even break off from their groups and stay with me. It is something about the whole shuffling around like a bunch of cows that they didn't like.

Spain has a great night life, enjoy the freedom!
Note that in Spain and Greece. The party starts around 11PM and goes on to 5 or 6.

Heck yea!

I use to live in Greece, would love to live there again. The party starts up at 11PM and goes on into the morning. More than a few places never even close.

Sober up, eat breakfast then go home, crash and start agin the next night, same routine day after day...loved it.

Of course winter was bland, but Athens had some nice big clubs that were happening so had to take a ferry every weekend to get off the island.

True--it depends on the kid, doesn't it? All four of my sisters were married by 17 and had kids by 18, and did fine. I started much later and still wasn't ready!

It depends on the person as I also served with 20 and 30 somethings that i would never consider giving them any kind of responsibility other than cleaning a toilet, and even then I would have to double check it was done right.

thank you all for the great information, yeah im not looking forward to being in a big group all day, (i think theres 75 of us going) but im pretty sure we have a few hours to go do whatever we want and i really want to hang out in some local places so i will have to remember all the places you all have mentioned. About the drinking, no were not SUPOSSED to drink, but what the chapperones dont know wont hurt them, i dont plan on getting hammered. lol. But thank you all again for telling me about europe and what ill expect when i get there. Im kind of mad though because our curfew is like 11 or 12 so its not like ill get to enjoy the nightlife a whole lot, but oh well. Thanks again.

A beer?? Did you notice mdawg said he/she was only 17?
I would never (personally) encourage drinking either.
But, keeping in mind, that the drinking age in most European countries is at 16 (for right now).
It use to be 14, when I was growing up....
But, anyway.....it's his/ her personal choice I guess, and of course we don't encourage something like this in any shape of form, period.
However, we simply phrase the customs and laws "over there."
What he/ she does with this valuable info, is entirely up to the OP.
Nonetheless...have a blast, and have a good time !
