Default I'm Back from my Trip...

It was amazing. London was so cool, and Paris was really good too...unfortunately, their subway (or metro as they called it) kinda smelled really bad. I liked London's (the tube) better. However, both cities were great!

In Switzerland I went snowboarding on a huge mountain...that was the greatest riding experience I've ever had. Lucerne was a nice city, and smaller than the first two.

I also made brief stops in Austria and Liechenstien. They seemed pretty good, but I was really around to enjoy them for too long.

The trip ended in Germany. Munich is a great place to be. German beer is good.

From a musical standpoint, I noticed A LOT of the music is the same stuff that we have here in North America. But I also watched a couple german rock music videos on TV and heard some french and German songs played in stores. The videos I watched sounded pretty good actually, but I didnt understand much of what they were saying.

Here are some pictures of what I saw:

# 1 Some friends and I at Buckingham Palace. (I'm the one with the red hat.)

# 2 Some friends with St. Paul's Cathedral in the background.

# 3 Jenna and I with a glass "peace" memorial (it says peace on it in all the languages of the world I believe, probably minus the small tribal ones) and the Eiffel Tour in the background.

If anyone wants to see more, let me know.

that's so awesome! i wanna go back to europe. went to sweden and iceland last summer. both were awesome, but sweden (stockholm) was insanely crowded, so i kinda got tired of it after a week. but iceland, oh my god i love that country. I felt so at home there, the people are amazing, so cool and friendly, they have an awesome music scene, i found great bands there. and it is the most beautiful country i've ever seen. the landscape is just absolutely incredible. at one point your in these huge mountains that look like a scene out of lord of the rings, then you go a few kilometers and you're surrounded by huge craters and geisers spitting out boiling water and steam, then a few kilometers later you're in a fjord with hundred foot high cliffs and waterfalls falling all around you, and then a little later you're in a huge black volcanic desert with no trees anywhere near. Rekjavik (the capital city) is such a cool city, honestly its my favorite city in the entire world, and i've been alot of places. wow i went on for a really long time, but its just such an amazing place, DEFINITELY going back there.
