She's Baaaack!

So, Alexa is back and she had an AMAZING time.
I got my wish, she took lots of pictures (over 1300). I still have to really look at them, sort and edit them. That will be a big job!
In the mean time, here are a few (unedited) from each country.
First stop, England:

The London eye, which they did not get to go on due to a mechanical issue, bummer!
On to France:

At the Louvre, Eiffel tower and

at the top of the Eiffel tower.

Next stop Belgium:

Alexa at the Belgium chocolatier.

And then, the Netherlands:

Shoe and cheese factory.

Then Germany, where she had her home stay:

This is their backyard. She attended a day of high school with her home stay sister, Sarah. Her home stay was one of her favorite parts of her trip.

And last was the country she liked the most, Switzerland:

This was pre-white water rafting, which she said was a blast.

And they saw SNOW!!!! So fun for a group from AZ:

Alexa enjoyed every minute of her trip, saw so much, and made some really good friends. It truly was the trip of a lifetime!
