Where In The World Have I Been? PART I

Well, I just returned from an amazing three weeks in Europe! It was my first time overseas and I'm really glad I was finally able to go : ) I walked alot(pretty much all day long) and saw so many incredible things! It was such an inspiring and overwelming experience and it will definitely take a while for it to all sink in. I visited three countries: spending a week in Paris, France, then went to Italy, staying in Florence and Rome, and finally to Berlin and Frankfurt in Germany.
Thought I would share some photos from my journey beginning with Paris:

The Notre Dame was just around the corner from where we stayed:
View from atop the Notre Dame:Gargoyles are awesome!
Our apartment was on this quaint little street next to an old Gothic cathedral-it's so surreal to walk outside your door and see gargoyles staring down at you!
The Louvre-It's huge! It was really inspiring to finally see all the art I learned about in school up close. There is so much to see, I got lost in there(I did find Mona Lisa ; ). I visited the Musée d'Orsay as well-I loved seeing all the Impressionism there.
French pastries are so pretty(and yummy!) ; )
The Musée National du Moyen Age had all sorts of medieval art including the beautiful Unicorn Tapestries which were really incredible to see up close.
I thought this guy was cool!
The Sainte-Chapelle:
All of the cathedrals were so magnificent and intricate, walking inside them really envelops you in a state of wonder! Pictures just can't do them justice...Detail of the wall:
Of course no Paris trip is complete without a visit to the Eiffel Tower which I went to the very top of. It was really high and really cold but awesome to see all of Paris at night!
Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday! More pictures from Italy and Germany to come....hopefully I'll get over this jet lag soon...
