well folks, i did it! i survived and no body was taken!! that's the one thing everybody asked us when we told them we were going to europe..."have you seen taken?" liam neeson did not have to use his special set of skills and come kick some tail and take some names.
we traveled through 12 cities, 8 countries in 3 weeks. i have never taken so many train rides, buses, or subways as i did in those 3 weeks. it really was an adventure of a lifetime! we had a lot of mishaps with travel and had even more laughs and funny stories! as sad as i am to be back and not still exploring, it is nice to be at home and kick up my feet and drink ice cold dr pepper and not pay money to use the restroom...freedom at it's finest!
