A Five Year Love Affair…

Tomorrow is my twenty-third birthday, and due to becoming a year older, I have been nostalgic recently. Five years ago, I took my first trip to Europe. I had just turned eighteen (as in two days before the plane took off) and it was, in a way, my first taste of independence (I was with chaperones from school, so I was not completely independent). The following are some pictures from the trip and quotes from my travel journal.

"Assisi is beautiful. It's MUCH more peaceful than Rome."

"It's so pretty when the Eiffel Tower sparkles. I can't even describe it."

"Mark, you aren't allowed to use your accent in London because they'll hear you and be like, 'dude, you're white.'" (That would be a quote from my friend Kristen)

"The Colosseum is amazing. I couldn't stop touching it, but it doesn't feel real"

  1. I cannot even begin to describe how jealous I am that you got to see the Eiffel tower sparkle. Had you not used that word, I’m not sure my jealousy would be quite as extreme. 😉
