Michelle Obama and her daughters, Sasha and Malia Obama, are headed for Europe.

The First Lady’s mother, Marian Robinson, will accompany the Obama women on an upcoming trip to London, Milan and Vicenza, Italy, from June 15 to June 21, according to a press release from the Office of the First Lady Thursday.

Obama, 51, who recently visited Japan and Cambodia to promote education for girls as part of her Let Girls Learn initiative, will next meet with students in London on the topic. There, she will “discuss how the U.K. and the U.S. are working together to expand access to girls’ education around the world – supporting adolescent girls in completing their education,” the release says.

In Milan, she will lead a presidential delegation to the Milan Expo 2015 as part of her Let’s Move initiative, which is dedicated to creating healthier families and communities.

In Vicenza, the First Lady will visit U.S. military service members and their families stationed in the city. She’ll also fit in some fun by visiting cultural sites in Venice before returning to Washington, D.C.

This isn’t the first time Obama and her daughters have visited Europe together. They also took a family trip to Northern Ireland in 2013, according to the Huffington Post, and in 2010 the First Lady took Sasha on a vacation to Spain’s southern Mediterranean coast, CNN reports.
