Bec&Val EuroTrip!

Bec&Val EuroTrip!

This Easter break (one month off (!) instead of the lousy one or two week spring break done in the States) I had the absolute pleasure of my friend from the US visiting me. We set out to have a multi-country European adventure, and it was absolutely amazing. Completely worth nearly killing myself to get all my work for my Master’s done so that I could properly enjoy my break. I tweeted a bit about #bec&val_eurotrip but obviously that was completely inadequate to seeing the photographs.

Without further ado, I present my incredible trip (I attempted to only do one photograph per location so it would not be overwhelming) but I was only partially successful haha):

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM

St. Paul's Cathedral in London


St. Paul’s Cathedral in London – we hiked up to the top of the dome for stunning city views

Fish and chips just taste better on the beach, especially under the blue skies of Brighton

ANVERSA DEGLI ABRUZZI, ITALY

Mountains of Anversa


Mountains of Anversa – think the beautiful views of Swiss Alps but warm (major win-win). Easily one of the most breathtaking places I’ve ever been to.

I still cannot believe we stayed here! Our Italian improved drastically, as did our charade skills

NICE, FRANCE

Beach of Nice, France


Needless to say we went to the beach every single day in Nice

Harbor of Nice, France


Gorgeous hidden views of the harbor of Nice from castle grounds

Thank you SO much to our friends for letting us stay with them and to my brother-in-law’s family for letting us stay in the apartment – you made this trip so wonderful.

It was so hard to get back into doing work after such an adventure. But I am so pleased my magazine is finished – the culmination of all of the projects done this semester. Just a few weeks left in my Master’s course and then it’s off to do my final project!

Friendship


Until next time, my friend 🙂
