Italy – Part II

Hey everyone, I am back in Madrid after my week-long vacation in Italy with my family. The second half of my trip didn’t go as planned, unfortunately.

Reading Week Woes

My picture is from London’s West End. I can’t believe it’s almost christmas!

Holidays in Europe

One of the greatest perks of being in Europe during the Holidays is being able to take advantage of the Christmas Markets! Vienna offered decorated halls, bright lights, a huge Christmas tree, warm mugs, and much more. The market was definitely one of the biggest I’ve ever been to. Lucky for us, we happen to ...
