After seeing it my friend and I headed over to the Germany/Austria border to take a gondola ride to the top of a peak in the Alps. I sadly did not pack proper attire for such an event and quickly discovered that boat shoes don’t mix well with snow. But can you really blame a girl who has seen snow a handful of times in her life? At least I can now say I climbed part of a peak in the Alps with nothing but socks on. Although I highly recommend no one ever do that unless you want to have feet that are brighter than your favorite red lipstick mixed with the numbing sensation of the freezing snow.
Castles, beautiful churches, and snow caps aside I was there mainly to spend time with my dear friend Isi and her family for a relaxing Easter weekend. We baked, ate, decorated eggs, ate some more, and watched Harry Potter and Game of Thrones for three of the four days. Without having any family in Europe it’s nice to know I can always call or visit them for a little at home feeling. It was sad saying goodbye, but now I have just arrived in London for a week with my mother, who I haven’t seen in three months! I feel like I’m on a never ending vacation. I will forever be in debt to my family and friends who have provided all of these incredible experiences to me over the past few months.
