Now for something completely different



I didn't take outfit photos today, so let's enjoy a little blast from the past with photos from my trip to Germany and Italy in 2007! I don't really look at them much, as I was there with my boyfriend of the time, now ex boyfriend, so it's rather.. weird for me to think about that trip. Which is unfortunate, as it was pretty amazing. I'm never traveling with a boyfriend again! Girl friends and husbands only.



















We visited my friend Emily for a few days in Trier, Germany, where she was studying abroad. It was by far my favorite part of the trip. From now on I'm going to try to stay with people I know when visiting new places. It's always more fun to see a strange city through familiar eyes -- you see and experience things you'd never have discovered otherwise.

I can't wait to be that person for my friends when I'm living in London. They'll come to visit me and I'll show them around, take them to the pubs, explain the culture. I can't think about it too hard or my stomach will fly out of my ears.

Thanks to those who encouraged me to get an iPhone in the last post -- I think I'll be getting one pretty soon here! Giddy giddy joy!

Ahh wanderlust overload! I want to travel to Europe so so badly!! Germany has the coolest architecture, I love it. I'm glad you shared these pictures. Err, well I'm kind of not because I look out my window and see slushy snow and I want to go to Europe where it's sunny. Shh, I know it's snowy there too. Don't ruin this for me. L(

Wow I am insanely jealous! I have never been anywhere and these photos are amazing! I love having friends in different areas, that is how/why I end up in Chicago so much.

I need to win the lotto so I can come see you in England! PUBS. Hahaha, I think it is going to be an amazing experience. :)

I love the night shots, gorgeous. I'd never travel with a boyfriend again either, its so much better with friends (or alone!).
In regards to your last post you need to read The Firebrand by Marion Zimmer Bradley if you haven't already. Its the retelling of that story from Kassandra's point of view. AMAAAZING.
Everyone at work keeps yelling at me to get an iPhone, but I'm afraid Ill have to work when I'm not at work and pay an arm and a leg ugh.

Gorgeous pictures! Boys are dumb. Well, dumb boys are dumb. I am so happy for you-- your wanderlusty dreams are coming true! Go London!

Ah! Florence! I was there two years ago... Isn't it so so beautiful?! So many museums... The beautiful buildings... And the bridge with just the jewellers... And David and his... eh, unfortunate package. :/

I went to Egypt with the boyf this summer and I don't think I'll ever regret it, even if something happened between us. *crosses fingers so it doesn't* It was just so amazing =] I highly recommend it! None of my friends are really interested in going on a holiday that doesn't involve them getting shit faced and/or lying by a pool. Not my kind of thing =] That's why my BF is a great travel buddy =]

Florence was such a beautiful city, wasn't it? I love these blast from the past photographs - they make me want to go back to Firenze so badly!
Tschüss, m'dear!
