...and on Monday I'm off to Prague, London, Cambridge, Amsterdam, and Frankfurt!
I feel like I've already had too much adventure for one little small town girl. I've become very good at pointing to things when I don't know a word and looking bewildered whenever someone asks me a question in a language I don't understand. I've gotten lost to the point where I ended up right where I wanted to be and I've learned that sometimes you need to be rude in order to get yourself out of a compromising situation. traveling can be overwhelming and extremely exhausting, but since I left the States in the middle of August, I feel like I've learned a million new things and can handle myself in (almost) any situation.
I'm spending my weekend resting, cleaning, preparing, and packing for my two week grand tour through Europe. I'm already anticipating how mind-blowing the whole experience will be, and I can't really wrap my head around how many new things I will see, do, discover, and eat over the next 14 days.
and so, let the adventure continue!
...this will be me!
I am beyond excited to say au revoir to Scandinavia for a week and take a little field trip to France. while it is a study tour led by my teacher, I've been assured that there will be plenty of time to sip red wine, eat baguettes, wear black cigarette pants and red lipstick, and pretend that I am French. now the real question is, who makes better pastries, the French or the Danish?

now that I've successfully (or not...fingers are crossed) taken care of all the schoolwork that I had to do before embarking on spring break, it's time to tackle the next thing on my list: PACKING.
I'm not the lightest packer in the world, and going through multiple climates on a 7 day cruise is going to necessitate lots of outfit changes. honestly, I can't wait to bust out my shorts and breezy shirts after spending so much time all huddled up in my winter-weight AA leggings and layers upon layers of sweaters and scarves. and so, I feel the need to pack every floral or crocheted item in my closet.
I'm sticking with a theme so that it's easy to mix-and-match once I'm on board: grays, pinks, feather and floral prints, cream, olive, chambray, and only a tiny bit of black. this is only a portion of what I've crammed into one bag. I may be bringing, like, 7 different bikinis.
and then I need workout clothes, pjs, shoes, shoes, shoes, toiletries, and who knows what else. I am inevitably going to forget something. oh well.
and I'm packing my hat.
what are your vacation necessities?
(no worries - I'm bringing lots of SPF)
and do you have any exciting spring break plans?
