Chadd goes on a European vacation with the Mattive family!

Chadd recently traveled with the Mattive family to France and Italy! 

While there, Chadd climbed the Eiffel tower and saw a rainbow over Paris. He loved skateboarding around the I.M. Pei designed pyramids at the Louvre and surrounding gardens with Vela. 

Then Chadd hopped on a short flight to Nice where he took a lot of train rides to explore the French Riviera. He attended the Monaco Gran Prix, visited a Picasso Museum in Antibes, and hunted for sea glass in Menton. Next stop for Chadd was the French island of Corsica, where he explored the medieval port city of Bonifacio. Chadd then took a ferry (and got a little sea sick) over to the island of Sardinia which started his adventure in Italy. He climbed down over 600 steps to visit "Neptune's Grotto" to a beautiful crystal cave. 

Then Chadd was off to Florence for a wedding, held at the oldest church in the city! He loved seeing the Duomo and the famous Michael Angelo statue of "David". And his favorite part of the trip? Eating the best gelato in the world of course :)
