EUROPE SIMPLY IRRESISTIBLE




Today I am joining beautiful Anita at Castles, Crowns and Cottages for the Europe: Simply Irresistible Linky Party. Thank you Anita for hosting this party every year. It has fast become a tradition for many!





CASTLES, CATHEDRALS AND STORYBOOK VILLAGES
Europe and the United Kingdon





When You Wish Upon a Star!

A young girl dreams, she reads about a princess and a king and queen in faraway places, she collects picture books. She grows older and she knows someday she will visit those places. Fairytale places were my dream destinations as a child and now I dream of visiting romantic cities, enchanted towns and scenic villages.
Come along with me to some of those faraway places, you see, dreams do come true!

I love the history of Europe. I find the architecture of the churches, castles, and monuments so interesting and beautiful. With each trip we do something different. We’ve backpacked across many towns and cities, rented cars and driven through France and we love traveling by trains. There are great bargains out there for travel and Europe is: “Simply Irresistible” and shouldn’t be missed.
Yes Anita, this adventure of ours Cest Trop Beau! Merci...........
