The Day I Pretended to Be Marie Antionette

It was my last day in France, and I had another bucket list item to tackle by myself: Versailles. This was what I would call a triple threat: I am someone who loves history, architecture, and all things royalty. Well look at that, it's got all three! I allowed myself to sleep in till 9.… Continue reading The Day I Pretended to Be Marie Antionette

The Day Everything Was Better in Switzerland

We wrapped up Italy with another hotel breakfast and more Nesquick in coffee. We piled ourselves onto the bus and set out for Switzerland. We passed Lake Como on our drive, vacation destination for many rich celebrities. We only saw it for a good 5 seconds. For those 5 seconds, the bus was a chorus… Continue reading The Day Everything Was Better in Switzerland

I mean, granted I haven't spent enough time in any of the places I’ve been, but there’s something about Germany that makes me wish I could have stayed much longer. We started off with breakfast at our little hotel in St. Goar. Breakfast there was scant. They… Continue reading The Day I Almost Died on A Bike

The Day We Got Rowdy After Wine Tasting

Another day, another whirlwind of an itinerary. It's a good thing our bus trips are long; otherwise I’d never finish these entries. Day 2 of the official Contiki trip began with breakfast. My roomies and I dragged our lazy selves out of bed after a fun night in Amsterdam and we treated ourselves to a… Continue reading The Day We Got Rowdy After Wine Tasting
