Since I graduated college, this time of year always has me pining for school supplies and new school year shopping trips. Ever seen You’ve Got Mail? The part where she talks about getting a bouquet of newly sharpened pencils just speaks to my soul at this time of year.
Four years ago, not only was I stocking up on new school supplies, but I was prepping myself for the trip of a lifetime. Europe. I still can’t get over how blessed I was to live in Austria and spend my long weekends traveling to any country I wanted. Wowza.
And I WOULD have forgotten that it’s been 4 years except yesterday I was going through old books of mine and came across this.
It’s my travel journal from when I was studying abroad. Notice the date?! EXACTLY 4 years ago yesterday I left for Europe and I came across the journal on the exact date 4 years later! SAYWHAT?! Either I just entered the Twilight Zone or Jesus gave me a little moment he knew I’d smile at. I’m gonna go with the latter.
So naturally I spent the next hour browsing through my journal, laughing at all the stupid, fun, crazy, dangerous, weird, and downright American things that we did.
Take a peek with me!
