I have returned! 
Some of you may recall my previous journal where I was searching for a travel buddy to tour Europe with.  In doing so I made a great new friend, and can now report that the trip itself was incredible!

It was also pretty exhausting, because within just a month's time, I visited London, Paris, Switzerland, Venice, Florence, and Rome. We used the super speedy trains to zip from one place to another, which was a great way to see the changing landscape. 

Some of the highlights of the journey for me were:
--Seeing a gallery show dedicated to a large collection of John Singer Sargent's best paintings in London. 
          (one of my biggest influences)
--Seeing works by John Waterhouse, including his Lady of Shalott.
--Meeting several friends that I had previously only known online  (turns out internet people are real!)

--Saw an awesome play (The Merchant of Venice) performed in Shakespear's Globe Theatre.
--Saw the new Mad Max in London's massive IMAX theater!!
--Walked among buildings and ruins far older than 200 years for the first time.
--Enjoyed not having to pay tips at restaurants.

--Watched the sun set from the top of the Eiffel Tower.
--Discovered that food really is amazing in Paris.
--Nearly missed a train, but managed to jump on just as the doors were closing.
--Used one of Paris's public urinals (which are strangely out in the open) just for the awkward experience.

--Explored Merlin's Castle (from the TV series) otherwise known as Château de Pierrefonds.
            Pictures here:…
--Found one of the best sketching spots ever, high in the Swiss Alps. Pictured above and below.
--Stayed in a hostel for the first time
--Enjoyed Venice at night, when the canals are dark and moody
--Wore a mask around Venice, even though it wasn't during Carnival

--Fed the birds
--Averaged at least 6-8 miles of walking each day
--Saw works by William Bouguereau
--Ate lots and lots of gelato

--Revisited many of the landmarks I had traversed in Assassin's Creed
--Discovered tons of amazing artists throughout history

--Filled a whole new sketchbook
--Found myself yearning to return to my studio, so that I could put the inspiration to use!

Many more photos from the trip on my blog:…

Thanks to everyone who offered advice and encouragement as I was planning the trip. I'm looking forward to more traveling with more online friends in the future!
