A Mumble Jumble of Memories

I found that writing these posts were actually enjoyable and made me really reflect on the trip. However, there were some things that I will always remember forever that didn’t have enough content to make an entire blog about it. So, I have decided to just make a mumble jumble blog of all of the shorter memories and impressions that I will still remember forever. It is completely random, but the assignment would be incomplete without including these.

My first one is a little cheesy, but I did want to mention it because of how neat it was. It was an absolute blast to get to travel all over Europe with Hannah Bushey. We had an awesome time together. Looking back, it is such an exciting thing to be able to share this entire trip with your girlfriend.

Chillin’ in the subway. Like a boss.

First arriving in Rome.

Secondly, I will never forget how acceptable nudity is/was in art. Everywhere I turned was a naked statue or a painting of a naked lady. It was cool to see how this was once a natural part of art. I included some awesome pictures for you guys.

What up statue?

Good ole’ Apollo.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Laocoon

Wasn’t supposed to take this picture, but I had to. This statue is absolutely huge, by the way.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Just hanging out with my boy, David.

 

 

 

 

Liberty Leading the People

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Thirdly, I had an awesome time with the guys on this trip. It really was cool getting to spend some time with them having man nights. Buck Schroeder was my roommate. We shared many a small rooms and thousands of Pringles cans. It will be awesome to get back to school and hang out with these guys still.

They always pushed our beds back together… awkward.

It will be easy for me to remember that Venice was my favorite city we visited. There were no cars, no hustle and bustle, and most importantly, an abundance of gelato. I mean it when I say that I ate my body weight in gelato.

Gelato- a way of life.

Gondolas in Venice

Beautiful canals of Venice

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Our wonderful night in the couchette will always be a night to remember. That’s about all you can say about that. I might even go as far to say that I would do it again…. Nah, probably not.

And these were the beds in the couchette.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Palace of Versailles is not talked about enough, but it was honestly one of the most impressive things to me personally. The gardens, the palace, and the amount of land were just amazing to me.

You literally couldn’t see the end of the gardens.

Outside of Venice, Canterbury and Siena were some of my favorite cities because of the sheer serenity and quality of life in these cities. Life moved at a slower place. They were both beautiful.

Lastly, I think it is safe to say that this trip as a whole is a “lasting impression”. No one will ever forget this experience. Thank you to all who made it possible for us.

    Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin

    Heya! I realize this is somewhat off-topic but I had to ask.

    Does operating a well-established blog such as yours take a lot of work?
    I’m completely new to writing a blog however I do write in my diary on a daily basis.

    I’d like to start a blog so I will be able to share my own experience
    and feelings online. Please let me know if you have any kind of ideas or tips for brand new aspiring
    blog owners. Thankyou!
