    Travel Journal from United States Nebraska, United States | Wed Jul 03, 2013

    In the first week of January 2012, I watched youtube videos of the New Years fireworks show in London.

    Travel Journal from United States Texas, United States | Tue Jun 11, 2013

    Well, I’m back home in the States!  My five months of traveling Europe are over.  I’m not very happy about this.  Although it is nice to see all my friends and family, sleep in my own bed, drive a car, and get back into a routine, I’d rather be in Europe.  My days of sleeping in hostel beds and having to use a map (rather than my iPhone) …
