    My Graduation Present.

    When I graduated from High school, my mother said, “You can go to Europe or you can have a computer.” I have NEVER regretted my choice. You know how everybody goes on and on about how beautiful Paris is, well it's even better than what you have been told. I know it sounds...

    years and have visited most of the countries there. I love going and traveling to all the European countries. I love England and France the best for tennis. I love the beaches in Spain. I love Monte Carlo for gambling. Also, I love to go shopping in major cities.

    Gift Of The Cursed?

    Sometimes I feel like that I have an entire other view of the world that's only understood by few. Obviously, I'm sure this is true for everyone to an extent... but this is just different. Or so I feel. If not, please let in me in on the secret so that I can relate to everyone...

    Germany/Austria

    In the summer of 2005 my fiance, his parents, and I flew to Germany. We stayed in Garmisch-Partenkirchen in the Bavarian region. The Alps are simply breath-taking. Many of them have crosses on the top. What a sight to see! We saw all the castles, ate local food, went to the gorge...

    I really miss it! I spent some time in

    both England and France and they are lovely countries! My biggest wish is to be able to move to Britain one day because it is such a progressive, fun country with many lovely people and more culture than the US could ever have.

    Avoidance Of Heat

    I'm British, but love to travel to europe, each country still has it's own individual delights, personal favourites are the Netherlands, Scandinavia and Hungary. I'm biased towards cooler countries because i don't like the heat. It's still a great continent with great people.
