European travels pt. 1

Our travels began in Venice last weekend, where we finished our program. It was an anticlimactic end to 3 months together as slowly in 1's and 2's, our group fizzled away. I loved our group. We had so much fun and pretty much no drama for 3 months. Props to a group of incredibly down to earth girls with their heads screwed on right. There are definitely a few people who I am missing a lot, one of which is Kate "Gatto" Clark (who also happens to have the best blog out of the lot of us... if you care to read, which you should, click here). She was my roommate, confidant, and wingman! I couldn't have been paired with a better match of a roommate for me!

Jumping on the bed pictures... shh... don't tell Pazit.

This is a picture of the 4 of us roomies, Pazit, and Dr. Bonomi, the director of our school. Little did we know that Pazit would turn out to be a ton of fun, and also sometimes really scary. I learned quickly to lie low and fly under the radar.
Anyway, back to our travels. We stayed an extra day in Venice, and then went to Verona. I left my camera battery at the B&B that day, so I don't have pictures. After Verona we stopped by Milan and then continued on to Lucerne, Switzerland. I loved it there. It was gorgeous.

We took a cablecar up near the top of an Alp, Mt. Pilatus. Then we hiked the 3 or 4 hikes that take you to the tops of different peaks of the mountain. It was amazing.

It was nonstop amazing. I loved it there.
(more pictures of all of this coming later, once I get my ducks in a row)
Now we are in Paris. So far, it's kinda lame. I'll write again later elaborating on if my feelings change. Cheers until then!
