Stepping out of the Whirlwind!

January 6, 2012 § Leave a comment

After I completed my teaching contract in Seoul on November 2nd, I set out on a backpacking trip through Europe. It was my first time on the continent, and I saw and did so much in the five weeks I was there that I’m only beginning to process it all. My goal was to visit four friends: Samantha in Turkey, Amy in Bulgaria, my cousin Catherine and her family in Italy, and Tom in the UK. In addition to catching up with my far-flung friends and family, and getting some much needed R&R, I saw some of the most beautiful and historic places in the world. Getting my Turkish coffee fortune read, visiting the Hagia Sofia, exploring abandoned Socialist memorials, visiting Roman ruins, riding an overnight train through 3 countries, sipping wine in Venice, haggling in Italian markets, gazing at the David, visiting Shakespeare’s birthplace and seeing tons of famous art and architecture were among the many, many highlights of this trip. Enjoy the pictures! There are many, many more on my Flickr.
