Bon Voyage

I'm too stressed to update my blog, but I'm leaving for Spring Break tomorrow morning and I won't have time to update for TWO WEEKS. It sucks because I know I'm going to have a million stories to share, but I won't have the drive to retell all of them when I return.

Tomorrow, Lien and I are taking a train to Paris to meet up with Ashleigh and PEETLES, my bffl from home. I cannot wait to see his curly head on the train platform. Lien and I are departing Sunday night for Athens, but we have an overnight layover in Rome, which is gonna suck. Red bull, anyone?

We arrive in Athens Monday morning and take a long-ass ferry to Heraklion or Crete. Now, I'm terrified of boats after an unfortunate sailing incident on my thirteenth birthday, so I got some French dramamine to knock me out. Anyways, we'll be in Crete for two days before arriving in SANTORINI for four days. Here, we'll celebrate Easter with the Greek at the Orthodox Metropolitan Cathedral. Greece decorates their towns in candles during Easter and after mass, they all eat lamb soup. The festivities should be beautiful and phenomenal.

After Santorini, it's on to Athens for two days, and then I fly back to Paris to meet my mom and my boyfriend for five days. :) I can't wait to pop champagne with Dylan beneath the Eiffel Tower on our sixth month anniversary. I cannot fathom how I'm going to react when I see him exiting his terminal in Charles DeGaulle. Aye.

Alright, when I return from Spring Break I will have a month until I come home. It feels like I just arrived, terrified and confused, in the Charles DeGaulle airport. Until then, bon voyage to me!
