My favorite memories abroad, captured in pictures

Europe In Pictures

The summer of 2016 was one that changed my life forever. I spent my time traveling throughout Europe, all on my own, making memories to last a lifetime. In the months I spent studying abroad, I must have taken nearly 4,000 pictures, in an attempt to capture the beauty I was blessed to experience. While some may say no picture can do such a thing, here are some of my favorite memories, captured in pictures.

When I was a child, I used to look forward to Memorial Day Weekend from the time I returned to school after Christmas vacation.
