Pictures of Europe

For the past two weeks I’ve been completely absent on the blog but this time it’s for a good reason. I took a trip with my mom to London, Paris, and Amsterdam… I didn’t do much (any) reading but I had a fantastic time and I thought I’d share a few pictures since I have no reviews to post right now. Anyway, this is totally un-book related but here you go – my first trip to Europe, in pictures.

I have tons more – classic shots of the Eiffel Tower and me sitting in a giant wooden clog in Amsterdam – but these are just some of the ones I wanted to share. While I was in Paris I got the best email ever – I was accepted to the University of Toronto! So that’s been pretty exciting to think about and hopefully now that I’m done my university applications I’ll have more time to read and blog. I’m still reading A Tree Grows in Brooklyn for school but I’m actually LOVING it. I’m planning on writing a review for it which is pretty rare considering I often don’t review school books. I hope you guys had a fabulous March (so far – it’s not over yet) and are enjoying the beginnings of spring! It’s still cold here but the air is starting to get that spring feel and it’s staying light outside so late these days. Happy reading πŸ™‚

    These look great! I can’t believe I have never been to PAris -especially because it’s probably like a 3 to 4 hour car ride from where I live. You’ve made some incredible pictures!

    It’s so amazing that you got accepted! CONGRATS πŸ˜€

      Oh my gosh, it must be so cool to live that close to Paris (even though you’ve never been there, haha)! And thank you!!!
