Europe Adventures

I can't believe I am embarking on my sixth month of being overseas. It honestly feels like I was at the airport in Adelaide yesterday, bawling my eyes out and saying goodbye to family and friends. But, it is time to leave Sunderland and go on an awesome 24 day tour around Europe before heading home to my little old Adelaide.


Excited to be back in Paris!

Notre Dame by night

Love Locker's bridge. Lovers write their names or initials on the locks, lock it to the bridge and throw away the key in the River Seine representing forever lasting love.

Lauterbrunnen in the Swiss Alps

After skydiving in the Swiss Alps!!! (clearly still on a high)

HUNGARY - Budapest

Yeah, this happened. 20 Euro for all you can eat AND drink (alcohol included). We got rowdy.

Budapest, on the river bank between Buda and Pest. The shoes on the edge represent the many Jewish lives lost here. They were made to line up, take off their shoes so they could be sold, and shot as a group into the river. 

Beautiful Budapest

Amsterdam brought the end of an absolutely AMAZING 24 days. It flew by so fast and there is so much I could write pages about the crazy fun times I had with a bunch of fantastic new friends, but these select few photos sum it up without words.
