I left for my first ever trip to Europe last Friday night. I was lucky to have a direct flight from LAX to Madrid so with the time differences I arrived in Madrid at 2pm local time on Saturday – just in time to check in at my hotel and meet my travel group! The first two weeks I’m in Europe will be spent with a tour group traveling through Spain, southern France, and Italy, followed by a 5-day road trip through Tuscany and Venice and a few days in Paris. I’ve been planning this trip for the past couple of months and I can’t believe it’s finally happening. These past two days in Madrid have seriously been a blast. Everyone in my group is great and I’m also getting to share these European adventures with two of my friends! Since I’ll be gone for the next three weeks my posts will be limited but I will try to send pictures and a brief update for Molly to share with you while I’m gone.
