So I guess it's been a while since my last post. Sorry about that!
Anyway, currently I'm in Leon, which is just a beautiful city. When looking online, you find almost no hostels here, but a girl I met told me about this Hostelling International one-- I had to sign up for this hostelling club thing, but this hostel has the most GORGEOUS VIEW ever. It's up on a hill in the most pictueresque place ever. Really nice town/city.
Let me go back and explain what my last week or so has been. I went to amsterdam for a few days, got really overwhelmed, then visited Doris which was nice. After that I went to Brussels, Belgium. Not a very nice city, but it definitely comes alive at night-- I went to a concert for this band I like a lot and it was lots of fun, I even met all the band members.
After that I went to Bruges, which is pretty much a must-go place in Europe in my opinion. Such a calm, beautiful city, and I met some really wonderful people there and had such a great time.
I stopped in Paris for one night. Ugh. Paris is *so* expensive to get into, and the hostels are *so* shitty and expensive. I was glad to get out. I at least went to the cinema and saw this french movie I really wanted to see called Holy Motors. But I had to get up and grab a bus to Leon the next day so I didn't get to go see the Louvre which was the one thing I really wanted to do in Paris. Well at least I saw the Eiffel tower from a distance. I didn't realise it lights up like a giant disco ball at night, it's kind of silly. Anyway I felt kind of sick the whole time I was in Paris and was glad to get out. I took a nice bus ride down to Leon and it is just so gorgeous and calm here, I love it-- a great city for reading. Currently I'm reading The Brothers Karazamov, which is fucking incredible so this is a good place to be right now.
Anyway, my love to all yall who read this. I can't currently find my camera cable so there may be a bit of a hole as far as pictures go, the battery is on the verge of dying.
Hopefully I'll update you guys in a few more days (I'm in Leon 2 more nights, not sure where to next :D)
