British TV Commercials

Here's a little lesson I learned a few weeks ago when this commercial came on. British television can be really weird.

The French Rivera

Nice, France was beautiful and relaxing. We slept, we walked, we laid on the beach, we burned. It was pretty great. In one day, I went from Nice to Monaco to San Remo, Italy. This was a good week.

City Lights and Protests

I fell in love with Paris. It is now my favorite city-above and beyond my expectations. It's just sad that I now have to write a research paper. While we were there, we watched the Olympic torch come through. There also was a ton of protesters in support of Tibet and the entire scene was so crazy! People were yelling and running and the police were pushing cameras out of their face. It was so cool. I definitely want to see this city again. I have to. This is me in the window of Eryn, Casey, Jaclyn, and Jessica's room at our hostel in Paris.
We took a bike tour of Paris our first night there. It was amazing.
We spent a whole FREE morning in the Louvre. I love this one.
A view of Paris from the Sacre Couer. I really love city lights so a lot of my pictures are some form of this one.
This is Sainte Chappelle. It has the most beautiful stained glass I've ever seen!
The Little Dancer means a lot to me--even more than that.
And I guess since this is Paris, I should probably show you the tower.

Days That Inspire & Make You Smile

Yesterday we had beautiful weather. I sat in University Parks just writing and listening to music for hours. I walked all over town after that just going nowhere and doing nothing. It was magical. At the park, I thought about my trip to Scotland this past weekend. I like to do words collages and these were the words that came:

-affirming
-castles
-girls
-cold
-spectacular
-age
-lessons
-wide
-trains
-kilts
-music
-rivalry
-friendship
-warmth
-kindness
-tradition
-family
-freedom (of course)
-daffodils
-rainbows
-beauty
-strangers

It's a long list, but it was an eventful weekend. I'll tell more tomorrow.

Quando il gatto manca, i topi ballano

(When the cat is missing, the mice dance)I figured it was about time to mention Italy! We spent two days in Venice and two days in Rome! It was so much fun and it was absolutely beautiful. I don't really know what to say about it. It's Italy... beautiful, pigeon-infested, history.
