paris + brussels

it was my childhood dream to visit paris one day...and my dream came true last month!! i finally got to visit the city of love with irene and hye and it was amazing. we only got to spend one day there because we had to go to brussels the next day--but no worries, i'm making a day trip there before i leave europe. :)

while in paris, we spent a lot of time at the eiffel tower and the louvre. in brussels, we had lots of good food--french fries, waffles, and chocolate?! that's my kind of city. we really liked brussels a lot! it was a very beautiful city, definitely underrated. i liked that it wasn't as crowded as other cities and the people were very nice. :) i also had fun brushing up on my french in both paris and brussels! heh.

get ready, this post is picture-heavy!

even though i've seen it a countless amount of times in photos and movies, i still thought the eiffel tower was amaazing.

irene + hye visit london!

back in october, irene and hye came to visit me in london for a weekend! i was super excited for them to come because i missed my friends so much. there were a few things i had been wanting to do, but was saving for their visit--like going on the london eye and visiting stonehenge + bath!

overall, it was a great weekend filled with beautiful sights, great food, and lots of laughter! i'm very thankful to have friends who are studying abroad at the same time as me. it's nice having a piece of home over here (even if they're not actually in london...dublin, madrid--close enough hehe). irene and i visited hye last week in madrid and i'll be visiting irene in dublin this weekend! :)

here are the photos from that weekend! there's a buuunch. enjoy. :)

a friday in london

okay, i totally did not mean to wait a month to update my blog. i kept saying i would update and somehow...it's november. (what?!) i only have five weeks left here! can you believe it?! these past two months flew by. i've just been going to school, traveling, and watching netflix in between haha. after i come back home from a trip, i need at least two full days of rest aka lying in bed watching shows and movies all day. (that's what i've been doing since i got back from rome and madrid this past thursday.)

since i am very behind on posting, these photos are from a month ago...! i don't have classes on mondays and fridays so i try my best to explore london during those days (if i'm not traveling). one random friday back in october, i decided to check out a few cool places i read about online! i visited daunt books, checked out a cool restaurant, and wandered through east london. here are the photos from that day!
