Dear Journal Viewers, 

Well as many of you know or now will know, I took an amazing ten-day tour through Europe this Easter break. I wouldn't have traded it for anything, I am so thankful to my parents for giving me the oppurtunity! 
Our wonderful group of highschoolers and chaperones--35 total, went through 3 major cities (Paris, Brussels, and Amsterdam)  and took three mini-trips (Bruges, Antwerp, and a little town outside of Amsterdam that I forget the name of!).

I decided then and there that I am determined to live in Europe!  It's truly amazing, so much history and a true culture! 

So without further adieu here are the long awaited photos--there are lots! They speak for themselves. 


.Our beautiful French tourguide, Jean Christophe, we nicknamed him "J.C"  


well this is self-explanitory...


The military acedemy statue...


this too...! 


Musee d'Orsay..


the entrance to gardens at Versailles! 


me randomly in Paris waiting for the metro! 


woops forgot to resize lol but a Paris street, this makes me happy! 


Effiel Tower lit up at night! it sparkles!! 


somewhere in Brussels! 


Bruges is amazing! (it's in Belgium)


Atomic thing in Brussels from the 58' world's fair! 


more Bruges beautifulness 


Seaport town outside of Amsterdam maybe called Vollendam (??) 

Well that's just the tip of the iceberg as for all of the 600 photos I took.  Hope that was enjoyable! 

haha one more for crown_the_queen of Catherine the Great--I couldn't get this one to upload before--GAHHH--

Love the pics!
Jep Bruges is amazing, it's my favorite Belgium city. In a few weeks, we're going on a school trip to...PARIS!
So I'll post a few pics when I'm back and then it will be very quiet on my lj, exams are comming very close :S
the atomic thing as you called it, we call it the Atomium :p
Never forget that ;)
I'm so jealous you saw Versaille, I went a few times to Paris and never saw it.

omg thanks so much, I loved your Berlin pics.
Also thanks for the advice on the LJ cut thing, it worked clearly!
Yeah my school year is coming to a close soon too, so I need to pass everything, so it will be quiet on my end for awhile too.
Omg have fun in Paris, eat a chocolat Crepe for me:) and just savor the moments in that magical place.
Atomium, yeah I forgot what it was called thanks for reminding me:)
Versaille is beautiful, a bit lavish lol I can see why they rebelled!
But the gardens are amazing! Maybe you'll go this time!!
Hope all is well
*hugs from America*
