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--

haha I know! I hate when it's dark, I don't mind clouds but darkness is very sad.
our summers depend, it can be very warm--which is nice BUT it can also be so humid that its impossible to sleep! Now I don't like that. How bout where you are??
