 Now for today’s post!

Last summer, I travelled to Europe with my parents to London, Dublin, and Paris.  It was the best 3 weeks of my life!  Why?  Well, I love traveling with my parents because my dad is my personal tour guide (seriously guys) and my mom is my shopping buddy.  I saw so many historical landmarks and got to explore three amazing cities.  As you will see, I took about a million photos on the trip.  I’ve posted some of my favorites below!  Most are of historical landmarks and my favorite experiences from my trip. Take a look and see why I am still so obsessed with my trip to Europe! #nostalgia

As you can tell, I had a ton of fun! It was my first time visiting Paris.  I have to say, it is my NEW favorite city in Europe (sorry, London).  I hope that you enjoyed viewing my photos!  I will keep you all updated on when I plan on heading back to Europe.

  1. Stunning photos!
    Although I really enjoy the views in Paris, particularly from Montmartre, I love living in London 🙂

    Speaking of historical land marks, we hit all 5/6 Chanel stores in Paris! At one point I had the street names memorized for their locations. Let’s see place vendors, champs élysées, rue Montaigne well that is 3! Best time. Let’s go back!
