I made it!

Ok, I made it.  This is the view from my hotel window.  It was quite a long haul to get here, not without it's trials and mistakes, but all in all, I'm rather proud of myself for getting from Seattle to Amsterdam and then Paris.

Almost forgot going over the pole we had the best display of the Aurora Borealis, not much color but very clear and great movement.

Made use of my travel journal sketching passengers waiting for our delayed flight to board.

Tomorrow... possibly an amazing flea market.

I am jealous of the Aurora show ;-)
Looking forward to the photos and blogs, and the assignments!

I am SOOOOO excited for you Michelle! You look like you have done thorough homework for every possible aspect of your trip - so it looks like you'll be able to squeeze in so many many visual opportunities!

Looking forward to your blog updates, and can't wait to look at your travel journals when you get home. Wish I could be there too.
