España: Barcelona

Ahhhh,España! Finally a country in which I feel comfortable speaking their language. Of all the places I was going on this Contiki tour, I was most excited about Barcelona. A little Spanish flavor, a chance to practice my not-often-used language skills… I couldn’t wait. Continue reading

France: Paris and the Beaujalis Wine Region

In London I joined a Contiki tour, and from there we headed off  across the English channel via ferry to Calais, France. My first real taste of France came when we arrived to Paris.  What surprised me the most about Paris was the wide, wide avenues they have. I was expecting cramped, small streets but the Champs de Elysee is huge!

I was really looking forward to seeing the Eiffel Tower in person and I have to say it definitely did not disappoint!

England: London, Bristol, & Bath

This was the third time I have been to England/ London area and I have to say it was one of the more interesting times. The last two times I was in High School and going out sightseeing with your parents is a different vibe than by yourself/ with friends.

Bustling London is an  extreme contrast to the quiet and tiny capital of Reykjavik. It took me a few days to adjust to the sheer amount of people walking around London at all times, hurrying here and there.

Eurotrip2012: Iceland!

If you read my last blog I wrote in May I was going to try and travel blog whilst in Europe. That plan failed because I didn’t have the time/computer access. Now that I have sorted through the 4,500 + photos I have taken in Europe I am planning on writing a little bit about each country I visited.

First stop: Iceland. Continue reading

Eurotrip2012!

For about the next 2 months I will be traveling in Europe! I am traveling part myself, part with a tour and part with friends. :)

I will attempt to keep a running travel blog during this time, but I am realistic that I will not always be near a computer. I will update whenever possible.

What does this mean for my daily projects you might ask? It would be tricky to do an art project everyday while traveling, so instead I am going to do a photo-a-day (dailyshoot) while I am away. This will be super easy to do as I am expecting to take a million pictures during my trip. :)

See you on the other side of the Atlantic!
