Spirit of Europe

Wow, it has been so long since the last time I worte. Needless to say I have been super busy with my European Tour and havnt had much time or opportunity to log on and write.
The first place I went wasParis, which was beautiful, followed by the Swiss alps where I paraglided off of one of the mountains, amazing! After that came Nice, where I walked a lot and sun bathed on the pebble beaches and swam in the turquise Mediterranean sea. I tried to find my rich husband in Monaca, but must have just missed him, so instead I oggled at the ferraris, aston martins, lambourginis, etc. and ate a magnum mcflurry. Italy came next and it was my favorite! I got to see al of the things I saw in my textbooks, and felt proud that I could actually understand most of what was going on, I definitely needed more time and practice in the country though. I ate pizza, pasta and gelati everyday, sometimes gelati multiple times a day, and had fun dancing and swimming at the campsites with the rest of my tour group. In Vienna we stayed in the nicest hostel I have ever seen, it was even better than our hotels so far I think. The only bummer was we were there on a sunday so EVERYTHING was closed. We ended up just walking around and laying in the park for most of the day. Ive been to Hungary, via Slovakia, where I shopped in the markets and went to the old outdoor Bath (the old hairy men in speedos were a bit of a turn off though haha) Now I am enjoying my last night in Poland after going to the salt mines (a bit boring) and the Jewish quarter. Tomorrow morning I leave bright and early for Auschwitz.
I have less than ten days left of this trip and I ont wantto even think of leaving everyone. I have met so many great people and we are already making plans to stay with each other in the upcoming year. This trip has seriously been one of the best experiences of my life. ;)
Now, I am going to get off and enjoy the rest of the night with my new friends.
Hope everyone back home is doing well
