I'm SO excited about a trip that I'm leaving for today to several different European countries and cities!
First stop: London
My friend Tabitha and I will be flying to London and spending four days and nights there, exploring the city that I'm sure will be CRAZY with Olympic stuff going on, since it will be only two weeks before the Games start! I'm excited to see all of that, but mostly I'm excited for the Harry Potter Studio tour...haha!
Second Stop: Cork, Ireland
After that, we will be flying to Cork, Ireland and spending two days there...I've been to Cork before but Tabitha wants to kiss the Blarney Stone and I love Cork so I definitely was up for going there again! Plus, there is this totally awesome marketplace where you can literally find EVERYTHING Irish you could possibly want! I can't wait to go there again!
Third Stop: Belfast, Northern Ireland
Next, we will take a train to Belfast where our friend Rachel lives! This will be my first time visiting this area and I'm really excited that we a.) get to spend time with Rachel and b.) have our own personal tour guide to show us all around!
Fourth Stop: Dublin, Ireland
After that, we will take the train back to Dublin and stay there for a few days! I love Dublin and can't wait to do lots of sightseeing! It is such a fun city!
Fifth Stop: Paris, France
After enjoying the sights of Dublin, we will then fly to Paris, France to meet up with two other friends, Kim and Meghan, and spend a fabulous 9 days exploring Paris! It has been a lifelong dream of mine to go to Paris and I am SO thrilled that this dream is finally coming true! We have a few day trips planned to visit other places around France: Versailles, Normandy beaches, and I think a few others!
All in all, I will be gone for exactly three weeks, which is a crazy amount of time to be gone, but I am so happy I have this amazing opportunity! I've scheduled some posts for while I'll be gone and I'll definitely be blogging more about my trip when I get back! :) :) :)
