    haha partying in Europe is always an experience! You'll definitely have to tell me what you liked the best once you've seen it all :) Oh that's sweet...good to hear that you're finally going to go to the place you've always wanted to go to! Um well my brother and his gf did a contiki tour and he said they spent about $100 a day (Australian dollars) with all the activities and food etc and I've always been to London with my parents so I'm not entirely sure about the budget but as far as transport goes, you can buy there's an all-day ticket that costs maybe 7.50 or 8.50 pounds that cover both buses and tubes which is better than just buying a new ticket every time you are going to travel to a new place But money really does go so quickly in Europe, especially in London so I would just say bring a lot haha

Hmm let's see, my favourite places while I've been there would have to be the globe theatre, london eye is a really great experience, oxford street was really fun for me because of all the shops, madame tussaudes was cool as well and just all the main attractions I guess would be good to see if you haven't been before :)

    The Louvre is amazing! so so beautiful, but very crowded too! I actually have brown hair naturally, dyed it blonde a few months ago because I get sick of my hair colour very easily but my mum has blonde hair and a lot of people in Sweden do have blonde hair...not everyone though haha

    I too want to see Italy, especially Rome, it's so beautiful and the History there is just something out of this world. Looking forward to seeing Paris, the Louvre, I love art, so you can imagine how great that will be for me. Okay sweet, I can see the blonde hair must come from your mom's side..lol..If I am not mistaken, most Swedish people are blonde? Or am I gravely mistaken? haha

  • Emma
