Dreaming of Europe

I feel like this is going to be a big component of my blog in the next few months... but I'm so excited for it, because, yes, I am going to Europe! My family is going on vacation this summer; London for a week and Paris for a week. My dad's been planning this trip for years, it feels, and we wanted to make sure we went at the right time (when my littlest brother was old enough). It's weird that it's finally real and within a reachable grasp. When a lot of our Christmas gifts to each other were Europe-focused, it started to get really exciting! Because this is such a big trip and unfortunately I'm not one of those people that has traveled the world a million times around, I'm excited to bring it to my blog! ....Which means I've already been bringing it to Pinterest and Tumblr  and saving pictures to my phone to send to my family. (Also, trying to figure out the new location feature on Pinterest so if anyone has any advice, let me know!!)

We have lots of books laying around my house and I got a book about French food for Christmas... do you even understand how excited I am to eat lots and lots? So many things about going to both London and Paris are getting me pumped. My favorite kind of conversation is the one where my dad pulls us in to the room to show us a video of the Eiffel Tower or ask about train rides. It just reminds me of how blessed I am to have such a loving family and opportunities to travel. It'll be especially cool because this is the summer before I leave for college!

I had a lot of fun preparing for my adventures last summer with this blog (my first one, about Boston!) I mean, my Boston post is how I met Eleanor, who's now a great friend, and get this- studying abroad in Paris right now! So, I ask the blog world, what do you think? Where should I go, what should I do, eat, wear, and learn?! Isn't this the beauty of blogging? Knowing that there are bloggers from all over the world and can give real insight into these kinds of things? Anywaaaaay, let me know if you have anything on England or France!

  1. So exciting! It's my goal someday to make it over to Europe! Right now I've just been staying in Central/South America because I figure I might as well use my Spanish fluency while I still have it!
