Hey guys! I am officially half way through my journey and my brain is definitely freaking out from sensory and language lingo overload. I've made it through Paris, Versailles, Bayeux in Normandy, checked out the beaches, Eiffel Tower, Louvre Museum and ate lots and lots of crepes and pizza from the Latin Quarter. By the end of last week I was relaxing in a sweet little hotel room in Madrid, and finally trekking up and down Las Ramblas in Barcelona. I got to check out the real original "Guernica" and Picasso stuff as well as the hugest aquarium in Barcelona where I got to walk through an underwater glass tunnel with sharks everywhere!
Today, after a 22hour train ride, I am in Rome Italy and hanging out at the laundromat while spending a ridiculous amount of euros for the internet. I should be here for a couple of days, filling up on pasta, good breads and lots of historic sights. I met so many cool people on the long journey here and i need to say thanks to all of them for keeping me company, making me laugh, and helping me find my way around! Thanks to all you guys sending the supportive emails! I wish i could share some pictures with you, they show alot more than my words can explain.

So this is where I'm at. I made it, jet-lagged and all. Security at Logan was insane-they made me take off my hat and sneakers! And then six hours flying overseas was great but only because I got to watch two flicks and eat three meals. But arriving in Amsterdam at 7:30 in the morning, not speaking a word of Dutch and trying to find bags and trains is crazy. No sleep, very tired and now I'm lounging back at a twelfth century castle for the night (shhh, thats hush hush) and trying to refuel for an eight hour bus ride to Paris in the morning. Lots of fun, great small houses and gingerbread looking homes. It's like a miniature Vermont with lots of ducks, oh and two moats. Miss you guys!

Okay, guys! Only two more days left before the big flight! I'm taking off around 6pm and should be landing in Amsterdam at 7:30am on 2/14. I'm sure it will be quite interesting. I'm definitely a bit nervous but also excited for the challenge. Make sure you check back to see where I'm at No comments:
