Europe photo dump

I took over 1500 photos in Europe but I am terrible at organizing them, so I just thought I'd share a few of the ones I have on my iPhone!

Not surprisingly, most of them are of FOOD.

My friends who are connoisseurs of Paris told me that I just HAD to try the macarons from Pierre Herme, and they were right! I was not disappointed - they were divine and the fillings were perfectly creamy but full of flavor.

The first stop on our road trip was in Reims, France, where we had delicious garlicky steak with the most AMAAAAZING buttery potatoes. I know I was on vacation but they felt so decadent that I had to give half to my bf ... also partially because he devoured his in 2 seconds and then began to eye mine ...

After which we enjoyed some ENORMOUS profiteroles. They were huge!!! And filled with vanilla ice cream.

Then we made our way over to Germany where I was ecstatic to find limited edition flavors of my absolute favorite chocolate bars. If you've never tried Ritter Sport bars, you must. They are divine. I loved the amarena kirsch - it tasted like cherries and had crunchy bits throughout (I think they were supposed to be the cone?)

At an adorable little cafeteria in Amsterdam, we found this fancy little Diet Coke. It came in a metal can that had been designed by Karl Lagerfeld, so of course I had to get it.

And lastly, I'll leave you with this photo of Amsterdam at night with the moon over one of its many canals. Amsterdam was such a gorgeous picturesque city - I can't wait to return to Europe!
