Hello ladies and gentlemen! 

Wow how is everyone?! Great I hope! I am now back home in the United States. It has been almost one week home and I am more ready then ever to go back on my adventure. However, we all know that’s not how life flows. Of course I have to go get a job and work for a while then back on the road I go! Here is some photos from my trip. Also, if you’re reading this comment if you want me to write about anything more specific. Places, food, tacos jk, just let me know!

Whats up everyone?! 

The last two weeks have been so busy. My traveling here has been a great experience and has opened my eyes to many things. There is so much to say I feel I can’t write it all. 

Now, Iam in Budapest and it is very beautiful here. It has a large mixture of modern and old. The weather is hot but it feels very nice. They have really good gelato here and we went to a shop where they shape your ice cream cone like a flower. Tonight, we are going to a spa party so I will see how that goes. 

My traveling has showed me many things. For instance how to have more patience and go with the flow. The other day in London we missed our flight as we thought we would make it in time by bus. Turns out the bus takes two times longer to get there. We had to pay about 90 dollars to have our flight switched over. That day was a huge mess but it’s okay cause I made it here to Budapest. 

London was good. It had some nice attractions but I think people talk it up a lot. The best moments were the unplanned and getting lost. Plus going to the wrong abbey road lol. I have to get ready now hope everyone is staying true to their dreams and working hard to make them come true. Xoxo.

Amsterdam xxx

It’s currently 2:50 am and Iam sitting at Starbucks inside the Amsterdam airport. In a few hours Iam going to Barcelona. Btw Starbucks here has way better flavors just saying. 

Let’s talk about the trip so far. On late Saturday I went to the airport at about 3am. I left Mexico and got to Fort Lauderdale at about 9am. I then sat at that airport until 10pm. Ya I know crazy long time. Then I flew and got to Copenhagen at about one. Then finally arrived to Amsterdam around 6pm. It felt like the longest trip of my life. I had met a girl from England on the way to my hostel she was hilarious. She actually came with me to help find my hostel. Which we laughed when I found my hostel was in the red light district. 

My first night I met two girls from Denmark.  We went out and walked through the red light district. It was pretty awesome and full of life and activity. Here there is many coffee shops, food, tattoos, and whatever possible. The streets were packed like walking through Times Square but only through a more narrow road. I found a shop only dedicated to ducks and cows lol. There is also many cheese shops and it tastes so wonderful here. 

The second day. I actually met a girl from Houston and she gave me some travel tips. I then went on a free tour of the city. After I ate some popular Dutch food. Which was good I love there things that look like waffle cookies haha. The supermarkets here have some really delicious food and it’s incredibly cheap. I tried this chocolate with Oreos and it was so good!!! I also then went to the ice bar. This was cool they gave you some free drinks and you could freeze for a bit. We then went looking for this bar and on the way it started raining. We then got lost and I was drenched, when we finally found it the line was so long! 

Today, I woke up and had to hurry and check out of the hostel. Which I recommend if you ever stay in Amsterdam go to the youth hostel meeting point. It’s a great place to stay and good beds. After checking out I was supposed to go to a canal tour. I was going then I got lost lol. I said f it and ventured to find the Amsterdam sign. And vondal park I believe it’s called. I  really love that park it’s so soothing. I sat there and ate bread while looking over a pond. 

The architecture is amazing in Amsterdam. You will see some houses lean forwards or some are just leaning. If they lean forward it was done on purpose to help get things through the window. If sunk and leaning that just means to much moisture happened beneath. I will be back on Monday. I can say this has been amazing and still hard to believe it’s actually happening. Much love!
