That One Time in Austria

Back in the day I was much more adventurous. Much more daring. Much more fun. Ha! Who are we kidding, I'm still fun! Although I was never really daring. Or adventurous. Until the summer of 2007 when I was in Europe. Then all hell broke loose...
The summer of 2007 something happened to me. I changed. Not for better or for worse. I just changed.
I had just graduated college. I was in a weird relationship. So my cousin {Bree} and I went to Europe for a month.  Probably one of the most memorable times of my life. Definitely the craziest. That's for sure. I did things on this trip, I wouldn't ever do again. Mostly because I am a weenie now. But I like to think of it as, I have a husband I wouldn't want to leave behind.... ;)

I would recommend to everyone they need to travel to Europe. With a girl friend, a girl cousin, whatever. But a girl. Don't get me wrong, I would love to go to Europe with Tony, but going with my cousin and both us being single, made the trip that much more memorable and fun. My opinion.

A lot happened while we were in Austria. Maybe they have something in the water. Or the alcohol. That brings out the crazy in a person. Maybe it's being blonde....who knows. But it was awesome!

We jumped off a cliff in Austria. No joke. We literally ran off a mountain and para-glided over the gorgeous green mountains of Austria.
We white water rafted in Austria in the freezing cold water of about 40*. 
We went to a huge fair while in Austria. Saw this bungee seat things, so we decided to check it out...we sat in a caged seat. And waited. Waited for the man to push the button, so we could be flung up to the heavens. Seriously. I felt like I could see the entire country. The rush of waiting for us to be flung. The adrenaline rushing through my body as we were twisting and twirling and screaming and laughing. This memory was caught on video. One of the best things ever! The things Bree and I said. By far one of my favorite memories!!
Lots of drinking. And more drinking. And more drinking. No judging. That's what you do when you're young and in Europe.
{oh yea...it was a 'white' night...so we ended up matching ;)}
Did I mention we drank?!? A lot!
Oh to be young again.... :)

Also, totally forgot...yesterday was my 500th post! Crazy!! Excited to see where the next 500 will take me :)

I've never had the opportunity to travel like that but I would agree that going with a girlfriend(s) would make it even more memorable!
