Katie's first post

Wazzzzzuppp! I mean...bonjour! We are currently in the train station, Gare du Lyon in Paris. Paris deinetly beat out Prague as my favorite city so far. This trip has gone so unbelievably fast. I can't believe we only have five days left. I feel like we just started yesterday but also I feel like we have been traveling forever. Next is nice, France and then finally Spain. I am so beyond excited for Barcelona. I feel like I really need to study abroad here in France. It has been three days and I feel that my French has improved immensely. I have met some amazing people and definitely have some crazy memories. I'm excited for nice because I can just relax. Because we did The optional versatile trip we had much less time in Paris. We went to the moulin rouge last nit and I was blown away. It was quite possibly one of the best shows I have seen in my entire life. I am on my friend carolyn's iPad right now in the train station, she is an awesome girl :) Def. Must see for those out there who have not visited Europe...go to see the gothic churhches in Prague, after Paris, they were my favorite thing. And oh my...the beach off of Corfu,Greece is absolutely amazing. God really has blessed Jenna and I and we are so thankful. I think I am going to come home with big hulking shoulder muscles and huge callouses on my feet. Some people say that Paris is dirty but I think it is beautiful, so beautiful. Currently I am sitting here remembering drinking wine in Toscana and haggling for leather in florence. My leg is falling asleep and I am tired. Au devoir mes amies. A bientot!

P.s. Notre dame is breathtaking, Jesus is truly alive!

We are currently sitting in a train station in Paris! We are about to catch a train to Nice, which is about six hours... we will stay for two days, after Nice we have an eight hour bus ride to Barcelona where we stay for two days and then depart for home.

Sorry my posts are so short, I still haven't found a computer!

Oh! Last night we saw a show at the real moulin rouge, it was spectacular! Seriously, the best show ever!

Au Revior!

I have been terrible at posting. Totally missed Amsterdam, wasn't a huge fan but I'll post more when I have a computer because right now i just have my itouch.

I love Paris. It my favorite city I think. It's gorgeous, went to the top of the Eiffel tower last night, stayed three hours until it was all lit up..... Incredible!

Miss you guys. Can't wait to see you, one week left!

Well hey there,

We safely arrived in Amsterdam yesterday evening. We got all checked in and then headed into town, our hotel is on the outskirts of town so it was about a ten minute walk to the tram station and a thrity minute ride into town. Once in town, we visited the Anne Frank museum which was really cool to see but at the same time really, really, really, sad. I can't imagine hiding there with no sunlight and no fresh air for two years! It blows my mind. Amsterdam is more of a city and lots of less to look at. Its so wierd that weed is legal here, its everywhere! Today, we are going to visit the red light district - I've heard its pretty interesting to see. I'm not really sure I'd say interesting, probably more like SAD but we will see.

Um, we are also visiting the Van Gogh museum today which should be fun and also the I am Amsterdam sign. I wish I could upload pictures to show you guys but I cannot! There is also a huge flee market here that we are going to check out. We have two whole free days here with absolutely nothing scheduled so we should have some down time which will be good because we are both exhausted. Twenty five days of traveling will do that to ya - man on man, ten more days. As amazing this is, I think I need one day of just sleep. I swear the long bus rides just drain the life out of me. Not complaining though, its VERY worth it.

Thats all for now. We get wifi here and will be here a few days so I will keep ya posted (hahaha no pun intended)!
