Welcome to Part 2 of my Euro trip. If you're interested, you can find Part 1 here.
The very famous Notre Dame cathedral. I'm going to go on photo overload because it was so stunning inside, it actually brought tears to my eyes.
Keep reading after the jump!
No trip to Paris would be complete without a visit to Laduree. This was located on the Champs Elysee and the tea rooms inside were simply beautiful.

My aunt was attending a conference so I tagged along to explore Belgium. We stayed in Brussels for 4 days, and here are some of the things we saw.
Mannekin Pis is a very famous statue in Brussels, and I will let you read about it here. In case you're wondering, yes, it IS a statue of a little boy urinating into a fountain (and that is a word I never thought would appear on my blog).
The Grand Place is a famous landmark in Brussels and a World Heritage Site. While it's beautiful in the daytime, it's truly stunning at night.
If you know who Tin Tin is, there was a little shop in Brussels dedicated to him!
While in Brussels, we stayed at the very creatively named hotel, 'The Hotel'. Naturally, it was the very same hotel that Obama decided to stay in on his visit to Brussels! It was rather interesting as there were police, secret service and many other security personnel out and about. Metal detectors and security screens were set up in the foyer, and there were snipers positioned in the buildings surrounding the hotel.
I also took the train to Bruges, about an hour and a half outside of Brussels. It's a lovely city that's also on the World Heritage Site.
It's full of canals and beautiful architecture!
And the highest profusion of gourmet chocolate shops I've ever seen!
There you have it, lovelies...my European adventure. Thank you again for staying with me through everything, I appreciate the support more than I can ever express!
