england & france: part one

well, I’m home. it feels good to be back. I’ve been going though all the 3,000+ photos, to share with you all & it’s really hard to decide which ones to share! just to give you an overview of what we did, we arrived in London on Saturday morning and we spent the rest of the weekend with my aunt Arlene, uncle Ray, cousins Becca & William. my other cousin, Adam, who is from Florida, is staying with them for a few months was (and is) there too. Monday, we went to Bath. from there, we went to Stonehenge & Avebury & the Cotswolds. it was such a sweet city, and the b&b’s we stayed at were wonderful! Friday, we took the train back “home” to Bundanoon, my uncle & aunts house. {which is located just outside of London}. we stayed there for over a week exploring London & the towns there. then, we went to Paris. oh, Paris. it was everything I thought it would be. we actually stayed a few nights in the narrowest building in the whole city! {it’s in guidebooks & everything!} we went to so many museums filled with so many masterpieces {including the Louvre, of course} that it was kind of hard to mentally think about it all after a while. we climbed to the 2nd level of the Eiffel tower & did lots of other things. we rode back to england on the Euro Star train & spent our last two days at Bundanoon. over all, I would do it again. I had such a great time, I would only change one thing: I wish I had eaten better. (i normally do eat good, it was just being on vaca that threw me off) I know it was vacation, but I was so tired all the time! it really changes how much energy you have, so I think by the time we made it to Paris, my body was getting quite tired out. so, my advice is, eat protein for breakfast! lunch & dinner isn’t such a big deal, but breakfast is.
anywho, this is just part one, so on to the photos! cheers!

goodbye, america

excited, excited, excited. that pretty much sums up what i’m feeling right now. i’m so excited to fly on an airplane, to touch down in london & to see and stay with my family who i either don’t remember, or have’t seen in a long time. then, i’m going to bath and after that- the fashion empire, paris. for a whole week. of course, i will miss my daddy & brother & little yappy dogs a lot {lacey, theo [who is doing a little better today! thank goodness!!] & millie}, but this is the trip of a lifetime. yay!

my dad pointed this sunset out to me a while back- i finally uploaded it. so gorgeous!
lately we’ve been having wonderful sunny, if not very windy weather. love.
