  • 1.My Dream TripBy: Charlotte

2. Stop One: England! The London Eye! Dear Friends, Wow, I cant believe it! I have arrived at the first stop on my twenty- day trip! Im already having the time of my life, even though Ive only been to one stop The London Eye! It is so beautiful. Its definitely a great part of London, something I had always wanted to see and ride! Id totally recommend it, because it is astounding. You can see so much of London on this! And I even learned something new Did you know that it is also called the Millennium Wheel? Well, I am having a great time, but Im sure Im going to miss you guys a ton! Bye! 3. Stop Two: England! Cabinet War Rooms! Dear Friends, My second stop The Cabinet War Rooms! The Cabinet War Rooms, first operated in August of 1939, were underground rooms for Churchill and his advisors. I learned so much at this museum Who knew that Churchill actually directed World War Two from one of the underground rooms? Anyways, Im having an amazing time at the museums, and enjoying a little bit of the British fare. Goodbye! 4. Stop Three: France! The Palace of Versailles! Dear Friends, Oh my gosh Paris is so beautiful! I visited the Palace of Versailles, which was considered the symbol of absolute monarchy of the Ancient Regime. I learned a lot, especially about Louis XV. Did you know that he was arrested on June 21st of 1791? I certainly didnt The gardens were completely beautiful! I just couldnt stop looking at them! The food is great too, but Im sorry, I have to go expect more postcards! 5. Stop Four: France! The Eiffel Tower! Chers Amis (Dear Friends), I have NEVER seen anything more beautiful than the Eiffel Tower especially at this time of year! I mean, isnt this picture miraculous? Im so glad I decided to come here. I was debating between the Eiffel Tower or the Paris Louvre Museum, but I decided to visit the Eiffel Tower because its famously known. The food here, particularly the Chocolate clairs, are AMAZING! But I must say, I am missing the American food Well, I hope you guys are mourning my absent, because Im definitely missing all of you! 6. Stop Five: Italy! The Walls of Lucca, Tuscany! Dear Friends, This is my favorite stop yet! I feel so at home, even though I havent been here for almost five years. And I feel so welcome My old friends recognized me and everything! Plus, the landscaping is BEAUTIFUL! And, I just love the community; everyone is so welcoming! Thats why I chose to visit Lucca; the environment is amazing and I had missed it. The best is probably the food, because the gelato is absolutely AMAZING! And the focaccia yum! Well, Ill save you a piece. But for now Ciao! 7. Stop Six: Italy! Piazza Anfiteatro in Lucca, Tuscany!Dear Friends, This place is just as I alwaysremembered it beautiful. I metsome friends here today, and we hadan amazing time. They no longer havemy favorite gelato store, though,which really bothered me. Anyways, Im having a blast, but Icant believe that my trip is morethan half way over I really dontwant to leave this paradise! Well, devo andare, or I have to go!Arrivederci! 8. Stop Seven: Russia! The Winter Palace!Dear Friends,Isnt that picture just beautiful?Well, its a photo of the WinterPalace, the home of the late RussianEmperor, Tsar Nicholas II.I learned a TON here, principallyabout the Tsars family. Did you knowthat Alexei, Nicholas son, hadhemophilia? Well, I certainly didnt.Im having the time of my life, butI cant wait to see you in six shortdays! 9. Stop Eight: Russia! The Yusupov Palace! Dear Friends, Today, on the 16th day of my trip, I visited the home of Felix Yusupov- the second richest man in Russia during the early 1900s. His home was absolutely beautiful, especially the views, but I must say, I was partial to the stories they told Especially the one about Sir Yusupov trying to kill Rasputin. I found it quite hilarious! Im also picking up quite a bit of Russian here, so as the locals would say, (do svidaniya), or good bye! 10. Stop Nine: South Africa! The Cape of Good Hope!Dear Friends, My second to last stop wasabsolutely amazing. I visited the Capeof Good Hope, previously known asthe Cape of Storms. Personally, I likethe name Cape of Good Hope betterI might not have chosen to come if itwas called the Cape of Storms! Butthankfully, its alright, because thename was changed long ago afterBartholomew Dias sailed past it. Well, I have to go, but Ill see yousoon! And dont worry, Im bringingsouvenirs! 11. Stop Ten: Soccer City For the South African Team!Dear Friends,For my last stop, my tour guideand I decided to watch a soccer gamein the South African Nation teamsstadium. Youve probably read aboutit in the newspaper by now, but theUS was playing South Africa, and the ME!US won 2-1.It was a pretty intense game, and Ihad an AMAZING time, but my favoritepart by far was the end.Apparently, Abri, my tour guide, hadsome connections, so I ACTUALLY GOTTO MEET ALL OF THE PLAYERS!Ill tell you more about it when Iget home, which will be in only a fewshort hours!
