Sunny, Sunny Spain

Sunny days call for sunny adventures

Seeing flamenco shows, going to the theatre,
 and catching Europe's largest flea market are all good fun,
but there's something about just getting lost in a city like this.

Portugal. the country

Took off to Portugal for a bit last week with some friends
What a beaut.
Palaces and castles and music and landscapes
 also way too much ice cream.
no regrets.

Was delighted to find out how similar portuguese is to spanish
What i thought would be a wall barrier between languages turned out to be more of a fence.
Definitely made for some interesting conversations.

My favorite thing besides making friends with our waiter was this:

No picture will ever do justice to the greatest view of Europe I've seen yet. Stop by Lisbon and Sintra if you get a chance at Portugal.
It was a good time.

Te amo, Paris.

Well, that was unforgettable.
Paris was a remarkable host this weekend
don't believe me? ask the dishes ;)

Arc de triomphe waved hello once we landed

Champs-Elysees wore its diamonds at sunset

La Tour Eiffel wrapped its arms around us for a photo

chocolate tarts winked at me everyday

the opera house showed off its majesty and royalty

the streets smiled with colors every night

The Louvre didn't mind being touched

Love locks whispered sweet nothings in our ears

Paris rain played the sweetest music when meeting up with an old friend

Sainte-Chapelle's stained glass played tag with the sunlight all day

Oscar Wilde (finally) kissed me back

Notre Dame knew my love for arches too well

le crepes kept seducing me

Beautiful city, beautiful experience.
I'm the luckiest girl in the world.
