Traveller's Chant

Whew! For the first time in my life I went travelling! I visited London, Paris, Venice, and Rome - exciting, right? It was the experience of a lifetime. Mind you, I just went for a taste. I went to see where I want to go back in the future. Unfortunately, London was absolutely freezing. As enjoyable as it was, it was hard to really get past the thought of your toes falling off. Paris was positively wonderful! (My favourite part of the trip, as silly as it is, was how fast the metro in Paris traveled.) Venice was nice, but quite touristy. A tad too touristy for me. Rome was quite enjoyable too. Overall, my favourite city was Paris. The women and fashion were truly inspirational. There were many bumps in the road (much like anything else), but there were many good times. I had the opportunity to travel under the English channel, ride a night train (through Switzerland!) from Paris to where we stayed near Venice, and we had a connecting flight in Munich, Germany. We walked on the pavement in Germany, so I'd count that as another country I've visited....

We start our journey in London with a few pictures of my girls and I. The first picture is of us in a double decker bus. The other two were taken between Tower Bridge and London Bridge.

Ah, the beautiful Paris. Obviously, the top photo was taken in front of the Eiffel Tower. (Try not to pay any mind to my hair in these pictures. My skin and hair had a mind of its own 
the whole trip!) The last two pictures were taken in Versailles.

Did you ever wonder what the inside of an Italian train station looked like? Wonder no further! The photo on the left is me waiting for my train. The photo on the right is the inside of a water taxi, which we took on the way to Venice.

Just a lovely photo on one of the many narrow "roads" through Venice.

Finally, Rome! This is a photo of St. Peter's Square in Vatican City. 

Outfit in Paris: Jacket - Stitches, Dress - (missing the tag)
Outfit in train station: Jacket - Stitches, T-Shirt - H&M, Jeans - True Religion, Slip Ons - Airwalk, Luggage - Tracker
Outfit in Venice - Jacekt - Stitches, Plaid Shirt - Tommy Hilfiger, Sunglasses - Icing, Leggings - Similar, Rubber Boots - (missing label)

Items thrifted in these outfits were my green dress, slip ons, plaid shirt and my rubber boots. I can honestly say to anyone that if they get the opportunity to visit any of these countries, to do it. It is more than worth the money. It'll change your life. Until next time....
