Oxford, England | 2012
Paris, France | 2012
Paris is a magical place. I've always dreamed of seeing the Eiffel Tower and sitting on a curbside cafe and sipping on a cappuccino. My dreams come true more and more each year.
|The first view of the Eiffel Tower. |
It literally took my breath away. I'm pretty sure I squealed.
|My favorite shot. On top of the Eiffel Tower.|
|The Eiffel Tower at night. So magical.|
|The Arch De Triumph|
|The view on top of Arc de Triomphe. Beautiful!|
|Yup! That is the Eiffel Tower in the background.|
Love this girl!
|Inside The Louvre.|
Could have spent hours in the place.

Rome, Italy | June 18-22, 2012
Yes, I was able to visit Rome, Italy for a second time this past year. I went with my wonderful friend Madey! This was the first time that I have traveled "alone" and not in a group of 20.
We learned a lot. How to budget, how to plan an itinerary and how to be aware of our surrounding. Pretty much how to be responsible. ha It was a growing time. I learned a lot. I'm glad we did it and I recommend it.
It was even more beautiful the second time.
|Inside the Colosseum.|
|The Arch of Constantine|
|St. Peter's Basilica. The Vatican.|
|Inside the ornate St. Peter's Basilica. Breathtaking.|
|Authentic Italian Pizza. |
We pretty much lived off of pizza. It was the cheapest and it was delish.
|Trevi Fountain. |
Our wish the first time came true.
|The Pantheon. One of my Favorites.|
|The Spanish Steps|
|Had to get this. The traditional "tourist" shot.|
|Termini Station. The journey home begins.|
Auckland, New Zealand | October 25
Oh New Zealand! There is so much to say about this wonderful trip. How God opened my eyes to those around me, how my camera is a bridge to minister to others and that because Jesus lives in me I am to bring that piece of heaven down to earth and bless those around me. It was overwhelming and awesome!
|Fiji was an amazing experience. I was part of a video team, visited a prison and took pictures of families in the slum village. It was a great time. I learned a lot. I loved every moment.|
|Inside the Fijian Prison|
|The Video group! We are so cool!|
|Free day in Fiji!|
Well, that's it! God has blessed me this past year. I've been places I thought I would never see.
Through each journey God has revealed His awesomeness in me. I can't wait to see all that he will do through me in 2013.
