on traveling with friends

traveling with friends is certainly quite a different experience than traveling with your family. 

for starters, you don't have your parents to carry all your bags..

..and the opportunities for candid photos are plentiful.

But above all, it is just so much fun! And there's never a dull moment, at least not with my friends..

la tour eiffel.

I had just been on a plane for 8 hours, don't judge.. 

I decided that the eiffel tower needed a post of its own, for obvious reasons, like the fact that whenever someone says paris most likely the first thing that comes into ones mind is the eiffel tower. The eiffel tower is one of those things that you just have to see, I mean it would be pretty hard to go to paris and not catch a glimpse of this structure, but theres something quite fulfilling about laying in the grass in front of the eiffel tower on a warm spring day, something that just can't be replicated. Maybe its because I was running on one hour of sleep or maybe because it really was that awesome, I just wanted to stay there forever. 

Paris was great, yes there were an unmentionable amount of awkward moments, my french grammar probably made me look like an idiot, and there were numerous times that we just wanted to push one of our teachers into that huge lake at versailles, it was fun and I'll never forget paris (and even if I do, I have 650 photos to help me remember). 


p.s. If you think that this is the extent of my paris posts, think again. I took 650 photos and all my clothes are dirty (read: I'm wearing a skirt in 30 degree weather because I have zero pairs of clean pants) so you're not getting an outfit post.
