The End of Paris + Amsterdam

I was sad to say goodbye to beautiful Paris. I was in awh of the Eiffel Tower {even though it is much better at night} and the leaves were just changing colors which made for a lovely backdrop. I was blown away by the city’s stunning architecture and amazing designers {this being my favorite} + shops, however, my bank account was happy to see me leave. Next, stop…Amsterdam!

Our taxi driver in Amsterdam told us that the people there live by the idea of “life is to enjoy.” I would have to agree with his statement. I have never seen a place so different from America. I will say that the people there are happy campers, there are thousands + thousands of bikes {who have more authority than pedestrians}, more canals than Vienna, and the cutest little streets, bridges, and buildings. It was a fun place to explore.

Tomorrow I come home. Can you believe it? This trip has been an absolute whirlwind and although I am so excited to get back to reality, my feelings are very bittersweet. It has been such an adventure and I feel so fortunate to be given this opportunity to explore the world with my sister.

So, back to regular scheduled programming soon! I’ve missed you guys.
