A little window into my world

Im home!

I just got back from my summer in Europe and looking back at the last six weeks, can't believe all the things I have seen and done. From climbing the Acropolis in Athens, to taking a gondolier ride in Venice and haggling in the bazaars of Istanbul, Europe has definitely shown me its many different cultures and all I can think about is going back.

We started our trip in Brussels and did a huge loop of the continent visiting 15 different countries in just 43 days and taking trains the whole way. Everyday was something new and we met so many interesting people from all over the world, each with a different story to tell. I surprised myself with my ability to adapt to the different cultures. Eastern and western Europe are so different but each just as charming as the other.

I am currently working my way through hundreds of photos and once I get them together I will be giving a full report on my adventures complete with the bizarre, lovely and just plain funny stories of what we got up to. Until then here's just a couple of cheeky snaps....
