I Traveled To Europe This Summer, And Here Are My Favorite Things From Each Country I Visited

Europe has it all!

This summer, I travelled to Europe and had the opportunity to visit 6 countries and learn about their culture and traditions. I travelled to the United Kingdom, Belgium, Netherlands, Germany, France, and Switzerland. Each of these countries are so close to each other but have very different weather, environment, culture, traditions, languages, and many more. From my experience, here is one thing from each country that I loved the most about it.

1. United Kingdom - London Eye

In the UK, my favorite place was the London Eye. The pier and the area around the London Eye is very entertaining and has really cool food trucks for people to try new food. There are also many restaurants throughout the coast with delicious types of seafood and different cuisines as well. To go from one part of the city to another, you have to cross a bridge known as Charing Cross. The view from the bridge is breathtaking with the ships going across the river. The London Eye is also a major part of this area and is my favorite place I visited in London. The view from the top of the London Eye is amazing and shows the entire city view.

2. Belgium - Center of Brussels

Brussels is a small city and there's not a lot happening in the city. The center of the city has many ancient palaces surrounding it. With many chocolate shops and meaningful buildings, you can view all the major parts of the city by standing in the city's center area. The palaces are extremely intricate and have so many details in the architecture. Each palace has a different structure and different story behind it. They are all even different colors based on who lived there and the story behind it.

3. Netherlands - Madurodam

In the Netherlands, we went to an exhibit called Madurodam. Madurodam is a tiny, mini city. Everything is doll-sized. From buildings to airports to cruises, the city was extremely detailed and fascinating.

4. Germany - Heidelberg

In Germany, Heidelberg was my favorite place mostly because of the view of the city. Everything in the city had flowers decorated everywhere with colorful walls and aesthetic decorations. Another aspect that added to the beauty of this town was that it was located on the coast so there was a view of the Rhine River and all the boats and river cruises going across. It definitely could've been a scene from a movie!

5. France - Eiffel Tower

I've always been a fan of the Eiffel Tower just by looking at it through pictures and hearing people talk about it. But, when I saw it in person, it was even more beautiful than I knew it as. It was definitely my favorite place in France because of the beauty it holds. It was extremely gorgeous, especially at night when the lights would be turned on. For 5 minutes, it would also illuminate with a fairy-tale type of lighting. The view from the top of the Eiffel Tower shows the city and all the cool architecture and layout of the city.

6. Switzerland - Mount Titlis

Throughout my entire Europe trip, Mount Titlis was definitely my favorite activity and place I visited. We went on a gondola up the mountain and were able to go almost more than 10,000 feet high. From the top of the mountain we were able to see Switzerland as a whole and were at the same elevation of clouds. It was definitely an experience I'll never forget. We also were able to tubing down the mountain which was super fun!

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe. The period when kings ruled Rome could estimate at 245 years.

Love Lost

Being the girl that is falling for the boy is never easy.

Love Lost

You constantly text my phone telling me that you want to see me and hang out, even though we may not have sex we cuddle and that’s intimacy in its own. I’m tired of buying you food and being there for you like a girlfriend when you consistently tell me you aren't ready for a girlfriend. I am constantly feeling I’m getting slapped in the face because I’m doing all these things and getting nothing in return. Every day I feel myself liking you more which is just crazy because why would I even waste my time liking someone there isn’t a future with. I just want you to be honest with me and with yourself, tell me how you feel from your heart, stop just saying you aren’t ready. You are wasting time telling me you aren’t ready because while you are “getting ready” some guy somewhere else is telling me that he likes me and thinks I’m beautiful and wants to date me. I’m not asking for much, but I at least want exclusivity because you ask me for all these things but in return you give me nothing.

Pretty Little Liars

From reading the books in eighth grade to watching the television show all throughout high school, "Pretty Little Liars"basically defined my teenage existence. I was completely and totally obsessed on all accounts. However, even though I loved the fact that the books and the show are starkly different, there are simply just some ways in which the books are much better. Let's take a look:

To The Girl In The Back Row

I just want you to know you are loved. You are loved so very much.

To The Girl In The Back Row

Recently I was blessed to be a counselor at a wonderful camp, secluded in a cornfield somewhere in Virginia. I consider myself to be a seasoned camp counselor, as I have not only been a camper for most of my life but have been privileged enough to work multiple camps with all kinds of different facilities. I have worked camps with multi-thousand dollar facilities, with zip lines, rock walls, ropes courses, and boats. I have worked at camps with amazing water sports, camps with paintball, camps with canoes and paddle boats and floating blobs or trampolines in the middle of the water. I have worked at camps with in ground pools and camps without any pools, and even some camps with go-karts. I've had problem kids, kids who refuse to listen to anything I say, kids who sneak out after lights out to meet a significant other, and kids who are every camp counselors dream.

Why The United Nations Is Key For The World

"As to the U.N., things will be different after Jan. 20th"- Donald J. Trump

Why The United Nations Is Key For The World

The United Nations (UN) has been in existence since June of 1945. Since then, the world has come together to work on and solve some of the harshest problems that face the Human Race. Be it children in societal ills like Human Trafficking, natural issues like Deforestation, or issues of extreme poverty, the UN has worked together in an attempt to make it a better place for us all. It's the only organization in the history of the world to bring people together in a willing, peaceful way; a feat that not even the League of Nations could do in the Post- WWI era. Why was it that one organization failed, and the other one is still going strong, 72 years later?
