Now, before we talk about my trip, I just want to get this off my head: Spring 2018 has been likely one of the worst semesters I ever had in college, and it's not only because of a lower GPA. Reasons also include six full classes exhausting the heck out of me, and my weakest scored group project, where faults were made between me and some rather hostile teammates (ironically, working with them left me even lonelier than before).

Previously, I was 1 unit behind, which was why I made the hard choice of taking one class more. In the end, I passed all my classes and learned a lot, so it was time for me to move on. What's done is done.



But enough of that, let's talk about how my vacation (from 6/1 to 6/12) started. Italy was the first country my family and I went. There, the temperature was rather high, which was why we needed lots of sunscreens. However, the castles and buildings were quite beautiful. In Rome, we went to that "Eternal City," which involved St. Peter's Square and Basilica. Then, there was that Collusseum, otherwise known as the biggest amphitheater in history. And then throughout the first half of vacation, we went to many other places like the Leaning Tower of Pisa, and Venice (with that flying lion), where we rode on a gondola and went up a beautiful tower. During then, the weather was pretty scorching, but nothing gelato and cold water didn't help. And yes, we had pasta, lots of it. Nod 

Then, we went to Austria for one day. We explored the Dolomites, Cortina, and later Innsbruck, where we saw the Golden Roof, which was the said to be the "emblem of the city." During then, the temperature felt quite a bit cooler, and we remembered that famous classical music composers like Mozart lived there. There was also that majestic OlympiaWorld, which made me wonder if the Olympics took place in Austria. Overall, I enjoyed the German culture, and thankfully, we saw no signs of what happened from WWII...

Afterward, we went to Switzerland, home of the yodelers. At Lucerne, we saw the Lion Monument, where a dead lion got eaten by a pig. Later, we took a tour on Mount Titlis, where beyond the clouds, the snow was crisp and elegant. Plus, the Ice Grotto was really blue and sub-zero; it was pretty neat, so I recommend going there if possible! :D (Big Grin) Sadly, we didn't get to the Ice Flyer, but it was much too cold for us. Later, at dinner, we participated in yodeling and the Conga, overnight. That experience was fun, even though it was getting too late.

Eventually, we arrived in Paris, France, which was arguably my most favorite of places (despite the smoking) since I took French in high school. Sadly, I didn't implement much of my French, which was pretty rusty, but we still had fun exploring the Eiffel Tower and Louvre Pyramid, and buying lots of desserts and a Starbucks mug, for my older brother. There was also that Cabaret Show, which was rather NSFW since the ladies' outfits were...I won't finish that. Regardless, I still liked the music and dancing. Meow :3 Later, we had an expectedly nice dinner, where we had escargot and wine-cooked beef, and as an adult, I tried champagne for the first time...and it burned (Never again will I try alcohol). No, I disagree! 

After a bullet train, we arrived in London, our final destination. There wasn't a lot of time exploring, but we did see similarities between the UK and US, such as the roads and language. Then, we bought a lot of candy (Mostly pig-shaped gummies) for my brother to give to his friends. For dinner, we had meat pies, and fish 'n' chips, which were my brothers' favorite food. Later, we had a boat ride where we took photos of the London Bridge, London Eye, Dead Man's Hole, and that Oxo Tower. Sadly, our magnificent experience was cut short, due to our airplane schedule, but at the airport, my brother and I finally caught Mr. Mime (exclusive in Europe) from Pokemon Go! Wink/Razz   

Overall, this vacation has been one of the best I've ever had, especially with my brother being with us again. While the bus rides were long, we made good friends, slept in nice hotels, and got to experience one-of-a-kind cultures and scrumptious dishes. Expensive as it was, the trip was my brother's reward for completing graduate school. So next year, when I graduate, my family plans to go to Tokyo (actually cheaper than Europe), which I wanted to experience for its pop culture and such.Love

So tell me, how was your vacation? And hope you have a good summer! ;) (Wink)

The question is, how can you be a fan of a celebrity if they're likely to have committed a blatant crime? 
On my way of getting an intern at KidWorks. The future lies only in my hands.
