Europe 2012

It is has yet again been months since my last blog – I really need to keep my word when I say I will keep it up!! Anyway, I did mention that I would post a blog of all my travels in Europe, that being Paris, Greece and Germany. I won’t go into complete detail as my blog would be much too long but a summary and some photos of my wonderful trip should do the trick. Enjoy guys!

PARIS: JULY 2012

I had spent an overall wonderful 4 days in Paris with my sister. I can’t say my introduction to Paris was very welcoming though – French people cursed at me and bumped into me because I was ‘getting in their way’ and I was nearly getting chased down the street by a French beggar simply because I shook my head indicating I had nothing for him. Not only that, but the streets and main city of Paris is really overrated and not what everyone imagines it to be. I felt afraid and unsafe and getting lost for an hour trying to find out hotel didn’t make things any easier. On the upside though, the tourist attractions were beautiful, especially the Eiffel Tower and Champ Elysees.

GREECE: AUGUST/SEPTEMBER 2012 

Two weeks on the magnificent Greek Islands where there are clear waters, beautiful beaches and wonderful communities. Athens was an unsafe place to be but I’m glad my best friend and I had better impressions of Ios and Santorini. We both got really tanned and loved every minute of it! We both did a cliff jump which we at first were reluctant to do but we’re both glad we did it. We miss it so much and really want to go back again one day!

GERMANY: SEPTEMBER 2012

Germany is definitely one place in the world I fell in love with. I stayed with a pen pal of mine that I had met for the first time in the 9 years we had been writing to each other so it was a really exciting time for both of us. She showed me around the beautiful city she lives in called Potsdam and also took me around Berlin which I found to be a really clean city. 4 days wasn’t enough time to see it so next time I will have to make a longer trip!

I encourage everyone of you to travel, especially around Europe. There is much to see and you will have experiences that you will remember for life.

One day

This would have to be the most beautiful but tragic love story of all time…

I loved it but I hated it.

Oceans apart

One of the hardest parts of being so far away from home is not being able to spend time with my friends, my best friends in particular. I communicate with my best friend Louise everyday through email and that gives me a lot of comfort because it feels like I’m with her and that I never left. Our emails keep me going when I miss her terribly.

Luckily she has plans to visit in the summer which is so exciting. It will be so surreal to see her in the flesh! I cannot wait for our plans overseas.

Louise is the one person who knows me inside out and she never judges me for anything. I love our solid friendship and being away makes me realise how close we really are and I treasure her even more now and don’t take her for granted. Thank goodness there are such things as email and skype otherwise I wouldn’t know what to do!

I wish she was with me everyday!

I love you bestie ❤

You.

You make me laugh, you make me smile. You already make me feel so special. I’m so overwhelmed by this I don’t know what to do!

My best friend

I have a sister who is 20 years old and only a year apart from me who I am extremely close to. Her name is Sarah and she is my best friend.

For those of you who have a sibling/s do you have a close bond too? I really don’t believe in sibling rivalry and I couldn’t imagine not being close to my own sister. Most of my friends have close bonds with their siblings which is really nice because at the end of the day, they are all you’ve got. Your siblings are your flesh and blood and are always going to be there for you no matter what.

I’ve been in America for a month now and I have never been away from my sister for this long and I really miss her because I usually see her everyday. I finally got in touch with her last night and we were on the phone for a good two hours. Hearing her voice and cracking up jokes like we do at home made me so happy and grateful that I am close to someone who is so amazing and who is apart of me.

Sarah and I share absolutely everything together. I trust her with my life and I would do absolutely anything for her. We get along so well and I wouldn’t have it any other way.

There are people out there who aren’t close to their siblings for whatever reasons may be but I just can’t understand how people cannot be close to their siblings. To dislike like them, hate them. I couldn’t imagine feeling that way towards Sarah. She keeps me sane, she makes me laugh and most of all, she is THERE. Sisters are the best! And life without her would not be the same. It would be like being deaf and blind at the same time. She’s my life and I appreciate her so much. You’re the best Sarah! I LOVE YOU!
