Europe Trip 2016 Thus Far

Although I told myself I would have time to write blog posts and edit youtube videos, it doesn't really come as a surprise that I have not had much time for either of those things. Between travelling on busses or trains and galavanting around cities I haven't even had much time for myself. Honestly, I haven't given myself much time to soak in my experience and the fact that I'm living the life I've only dreamt about for the last 10 years. Writing this now I'm realising how sad that is, and even how stressed I've been feeling these past few weeks, when in fact I should be enjoying every second of everyday. I miss my family. I miss my friends. It's difficult being predominantly on your own when you're so used to being surrounded by loved ones. But I'm learning things about myself on this trip that surprise me so much that I might even be in denial of some of them (I shall tell you about these discoveries post-trip, as I'm sure there are more things to learn).

Already I have broken a wheel on my suitcase (day 1 after my contiki) and converted to backpack. So now I'm OFFICIALLY a backpacker. And not a luxury suitcase-traveller. I have yet to travel with the backpack yet so we shall see if broken wheel becomes broken back.

The best part about my trip so far definitely has to be seeing snow again and having the opportunity to ski. I teared up a little bit at that unique, distinctive feeling of snow beneath your feet as it compacts down. Second best would 100% speaking french again. Speaking it everyday in my daily life here in Paris has lead me to feel like I'm forgetting my english!

Anyway, enough babbling about myself, here is what you all want: the photos.
