LONG TIME NO SEE!
My plan of posting every now and then during the trip completely backfired, apparently, but after sore legs every day, sweating profusely on non-airconditioned trains, desperately wishing to scoop up the tiniest three-year-olds speaking French to take back home, stuffing our faces with pizza and gelato, jumping off of piers 40 feet above water, and surviving the shakiest ride back in the plane through a thunderstorm, I would like to point out that I'm back in the United States of America.
Only in our house for two days, I've found myself wistfully thinking about Europe. Except Rome, which nearly killed me. Just kidding...it's just such an intense city, with the cumulation of smells (not great), sounds (okay), and sights (monumental).
I was scoffed at by my fellow expedition partners (aka my older sister and my husband) for my insatiable urge to stare through the camera lens and maniacally bask in the glory of the sound of the shutter that was constantly galloping like horses' hooves, but I would like to point out (again), that some beeeaautiful photos that ALMOST serve these places justice became the byproducts of my annoying habits.
Care to look at a few sneak peeks?
Oh, and can you guess what my favorite city was?
The wedding (INSANE, by the way>>horse carriages, a venue that resembles Downton Abbey, Rolls Royces) was outside of a beautiful town called Aspley Guise, which I sadly only have a handful of photos of. I'll still share them, so no worries! London, though...I have countless visuals of you. :)
And who would have known that one of the most crazy-beautiful beach towns is within an hour's reach of Rome by train? This, my friends, was the perfect way to relax before coming back home. Spoiled? Check.
Somehow I'll have to find the power within me to sift thorough my thousands of photos, but I'll definitely share more!
Have you guys ever been to any of these places?? What did you think?
And by the way, I've missed you all!
