Europe in 4 days

On November 22nd I got to go to Europe with L to see my sister, C, and my dad.  It was so fast, I feel like it was there and gone in the blink of an eye.  I miss it and want to go back!  Here are some photos from my trip...

Luggage

Me and L waiting for the chauffer

Me and L in the Virgin Atlantic Upper Class lounge (ooh la la)

My hard drink... a shirley temple

My little pod (the seat turns into a bed!)

L and I waiting for takeoff

Relaxing in our seat

There were only 5 people total in Upper Class, so we pretty much had 3 stewards at our beckon call for whatever we wanted!

Almost there...

Hogwarts castle wall

The door to Hogwarts

The great hall as well as some costumes

Me drinking a Butterbeer (it was kinda gross.  The "foam" was very very thick butterscotch concentrate, and the soda was cream soda)

The Knight Bus

The bridge

The model they used for ariel shots

It was so beautiful!

Me and L

Olivander's Wand shop.  Yes, those are all wand boxes.  There were thousands!!  

This was our view out the bus window.  No, that's not condensation, they had a sticker over ALL of the windows so they weren't see through!

L and I in the super deep tub

L and I on the London eye

C on the eye

C playing "shark attack" with L

Trafalgar square.  If you look close, you can see tanks from the set of "all you need is kill" which they were filming while we were there.

L'arc de Triomphe

C, walking down the Champs-Elysee

The eiffel tower set off these sparkling white lights at 9pm, it made it look like the whole tower was shimmering, it was beautiful!

The Louvre before sunrise

The eternal flame (I think that's what it's called?)

 It was so beautiful there, I can't wait to go back.  Hopefully I'll be able to go soon!
