Ever since traveling overseas, the always wondered what it would be like to speak a different language, to grow up learning different customs, or to live in a completely different way than I do now. This past summer my dream finally came true. I got to travel to England and France with my parents. .
England's green hills and city life is unforgettable. Kensington, Westminster Abby, and Piccadelli Circus are just a few parts of London that are full of café's and little shopping places. My favorite experience in London was riding The Underground Rail to see the Broadway play Fosse and watching the guards at Buckingham Palace. England overall isn't too different from the states. The same language is spoken and their currency, the pound, is very similar to the U.S dollar. But the driving on the left side is hard to get use to.
The Eiffel Tower and Notre Dame are all located in the heart of Paris, France. Paris with its French Cuisine and its romantic atmosphere fills you with a sense of contentment. I'll never forget sitting at a café, eating a baguette and drinking water while watching the beautiful Parisian woman walking by. Paris's metro system makes going anywhere a fast and easy trip.
After my fabulous trip touring two countries it was time to return to the U.S. I had made so my new friends saw so many new things, and had so much fun. Going to Europe completely changed the way I look at the world. I now respect different cultures. I never imagined how different the world outside the U.S really was. My adventures this summer has left me wondering what the rest of the world is like. There's so much I've never seen and I can't wait to explore it.
