European Adventure

Everyone says Europe is magical.  The culture is inspiring.  The architecture is breathtaking.  The food is incredible.  I never knew how true these statements were until I had the opportunity to visit four amazing European countries this past summer.

For just over two weeks, I traveled to Italy, Spain, and parts of France and the U.K.  It was my first time to mainland Europe and one of the most incredible trips I have ever taken.  We started in Rome for three days and then boarded a cruise ship that took us along the coast for the next two weeks.  It is impossible to see these countries in their entirety in two weeks but we spent every moment making the most of the short time we had.

While it would be impossible to explain all of the incredible memories I made on this trip, here are a few of my favorites….

– Eating an early morning breakfast on a rooftop garden in Rome

– Listening to church bells rings while in the Roman Forum

– Sipping a cappuccino while watching the sunrise over the Mediterranean Sea

– Exploring the famous flower market in Nice

– Stumbling upon a silent disco pool party

– Walking alongside the wild monkey population in Gibraltar

– Eating tapas in Barcelona

– Relaxing on a beach in Ibiza

Does anyone else have a travel memory that gives you goosebumps? Comment below and make sure to follow the blog for new post updates!

Sincerely,

Lydia

    It’s so interesting to see Europe from an outside perspective! Growing up smack in the middle of it all, I never perceived it as “one culture” or something magical – though after seeing your super pretty pictures, I get it! 🙂 Your trip sounds amazing!

    Awesome! I loved Rome, one of my favourites in Europe! Talking goosebumps though . . . Standing in the middle of a never-ending road leading to Death Valley, California. Hadn’t seen another car for about 3 hours! Scary but so exciting at the same time!

      1. It is a beautiful country! But it is not so kind to us budget travelers haha! We are currently housesitting here so that makes it a bit more affordable.

    Remembering the melody of cowbells in the Swiss Alps, the aroma of market stalls selling local produce and the toll of church bells in a French village…love your pics
