I'm so happy to be back and tell you all about my spring break on the continent! The cities I visited were absolutely gorgeous and exceeded my expectations. I'm so happy and appreciative I got the chance to see a small section of Europe over two weeks! Below I have posted the best photos from my trip. First, my friend and I met up with our friend in Paris, then we traveled to Barcelona on our own, stayed in Madrid for a few days, and then I flew to visit my friend in Florence. The pictures hardly do the sites justice, but I did my best to capture them!
|The Eiffel Tour, Paris, France.|
|The beach in Barcelona... I brought my bathing suit thinking I was going to get a nice tan... but it was extremely cold. I only wore shorts a few times! Barcelona.|
|A Gaudi building... I didn't know if I liked him at first or not, but I quickly fell in love with his style, and coloring. Barcelona.|
|There were these "magic fountains" that danced to music that was played. We went on a beautiful day and it seemed like a popular attraction... there were hundreds of people there. Barcelona.|
|The campus in Florence: they were gifted a villa. Probably one of the prettiest places I have seen. My Florence pictures were done the least justice, but you can get the idea here. Sigh. Florence.|
|They had a "lemon garden". I really wanted to pick one, but couldn't because it was a museum! A friend told me that during a certain day they had a "festival there" and made Limoncello, and lemon cookies... yum! Florence.|
I hope you enjoyed these pictures. I certainly had a great time looking back at them, and remembering the past few weeks. These are only a few of many pictures, so if you would like a second blog post of just pictures, let me know, and I will post another one. I have planned for my next spring break post to be on traveling (boy, do I have recommendations for you!). I had such a wonderful time, and I am just so thankful I got to see all of these places. This is definitely not the last time I will be visiting Europe. There is so much to see and do, and multiple times, that I can't wait to get back!
So glad to be back with you all!
Until next time,
