30 Days in Europe....First Stop....Paris!

So this past fall I graduate from college and thought to myself "I wanna see the world." And despite having no job, no money, and no prospects, it was the perfect time to go. Economy in the dumps, having all 4 years working towards a piece of paper that says "Look I was educated!" It didn't feel like much until I experience the world. So I raised the money and brought on a buddy for this EuroTrip. It was like the movie, only I was living it. Believe me that movie doesn't seem that far fetched after all. ^_^

Even though my bank account is exhausted. I'm glad I went and saw everything I wanted to see. Art, culture, meeting different people, bunking with other travelers, sleeping in hostels...

I've literally taken 4,000 photos give or take. @_@ The miracle of digital cameras! Since it's just sitting here on my desktop, I might as well share them. (Yeah I'm one of those who are too lazy to print them out. I can't even fathom how you print 4,000 pictures)

Hopefully you can be inspired by the pictures.

First Stop Paris!

Despite what a lot of people think I found the French charming and not as snooty as everyone claimed they are. Yeah, there are strange people everywhere and maybe I'm just a New Yorker being use to it. I said it was the best and weirdest 30 days of my life. But really just a polite "Merci" and "Bonjour" and they'll smile.

(Art History Anyone?) (My first Creme Bruele)
(The Orsay Museum) (An Awesome Paper Cutter!)

I'm off to finished whatever the hell I need to finish... I never have enough time to do everything I want in a day. Oh and that digital piece...still working on it! -_- I'll eventually post it...

Paris... you lucky girl - I'm envious! That's definitely the next holiday we are going on - Europe. Haven't been on a holiday for over 8 years! My girls and I are obsessed with going there, but there's 4 of us and well - it's going to be awhile before we can go.

Love the pictures, can't wait for you to post more. Really neat to see the man cutting silhouettes with scissors... My Mom did paper cutting silhouettes - they're all over my house, framed - very dear to me as she passed away a couple of years ago.

Hope you get things done so you can post some more! ;o)

I never finish my day's to-do list either. ;P

I think it's great that you made a way to go travel-- and you can't beat doing it backpacker-style! Honestly, I think you get so much more into the heart of it all and meet so many more other international travelers that way! Good for you! :) Besides, cheaper trips=more travels!
