It feels so good to be back in my own room here in Scotland!
I had an irreplaceable time backpacking throughout Europe for the past three weeks. It really makes me appreciate all the blessings that I have and how much family and friends mean to me back home in the states😊
I have some great stories and pictures to share. Hopefully I can get those uploaded tonight. I actually have time to do it, although it might take a while because I have over 2000 pictures. Whoops😊
Some have asked me what my favorite place was that I visited. The winner is Rome, with Paris as a close, close second. If I could, I would see all of Italy and then all of France. The place I liked the least would be London; way too overcrowded and dirty. Spain would have been great if we had found a sunny, warm day in a touristy neighborhood, but we didn't. Athens is NOT at all what I thought it would be. It was a pretty terrifying place; I wouldn't go back to Athens, but would most certainly go to the islands. I have friends there now who said they are beautiful and are what postcards and books portray Greece really to be.
I now consider myself to be an "experienced" traveler😊 I have learned SO much about traveling and communication that I know will be helpful for my future plans.
Classes start up again on Monday. I need to finish up some essays and then I'll be done for the semester, besides exams.
Time to upload some pictures!
