I Dreamed a Dream...of Going to Paris! (TOP 10 EUROPE LIST!)

Ok, its no secret I REALLY want to go to Europe. I'm afraid being a Humanities major has almost driven me to the point of insanity how badly I want to go. And I will go! Some day! Weather it be my honeymoon (There, your wedding reference Jen :), a study abroad, or just a tour...I've fantasized about studying abroad in Paris, the European Humanities tour, and the European Religious Tour. I feel like its in my grasp to go if I can just have $4,000 to spare. I would do study abroad, but that is the same cost as a mission and I can't bring myself to do that. Anyways, I just wanted to go through some of the places I want to go to so much I could cry...and I probably would cry if I went there...

1. Paris, France. Thank you Napolean for acquiring a ton of European art and sticking it in one city to taunt me. I mean, seriously? This place is amazing. First of all, as if the art weren't tempting enough, I am seriously curious about the culture and the way people act. Do the French really hate Americans? Cause I want to know first hand! I want to see how Socialism functions and how the people like it (as with most European countries). Oh and also did I mention to Louvre!

2. Versai, France. Ok Louis XIV is one of the funniest Kings in history to me! The Sun King! I could talk/learn/discuss the history of Versai and Louis for hours. Its just breathtaking. HUGE. And the palace to end all palaces. 

3. Budapest, Hungary. One of my very good friends is on a mission here. Am I a little jealous? Yes. Liszt is from Hungary. And he is dreamy, so why wouldn't I want to go here? OH And I love his music! And the architecture of Budapest!

4. Berlin, Germany. Can you say, history? Music, art, war, Germany has been through it all. I want to see it.
5. Denmark. Jensen is Danish. I am very Danish. And this is possibly the most Socialist country in the world. Its the least religious in the world. And statistically the happiest in the world. Hello, interesting.

6. Vienna, Austria. Ok, I'd have more comments about all of this if I wrote this 6 months ago when I was in Humanities (That goes for all these places!). But for now, all I can say is history, art, and culture.

7. St. Pauls Cathedral
8. Vatican City. Do I even need to explain this one?

9. London, England. Alright. Hogwarts, Abbey Road, Big Ben, St. Pauls, Buckingham...the list goes on and on...

10. Scotland and Ireland. Its what I am :) Family history!

Well there you have it, my top 10 Europe list. There was no order of preference! Its just what came to mind first!

I've been brainstorming ways I could get to Europe...What if I work for BYU doing study abroad Humanities tours? I would die...that would be the greatest job ever in the history of the world I think...
