Guys...Here I Am!

I'm officially back from Europe. I have been for a few days now, and I think I'm just now getting over my jet lag. It's a weird thing for me. I woke up at 6am my first morning back and thought "Heck no. I'm not getting up yet," so I made myself fall back asleep. Only worked until 8:30, but it was better than 6. It's just been especially strange because, as I've mentioned before, I am NOT a morning person, so to wake up so early without an alarm is just...weird.

Also, I came back with a bit of a tan! That's impressive for me. I'm usually about as white as...well, as the drawings of myself I put in this blog. My very first day in Vienna, I got sunburnt. Pretty badly too. I was not at all expecting to come home from Austria/Germany with a sunburn. Luckily though, it's now turned into a fairly decent tan, so that's nice. Usually the progression is something like:

But this time, by some strange miracle, it's gone a little more like:

Oh, and I also have a Farmer's Tan. I'm not really happy about that, but I'll take what I can get.

So that things don't get too crazy with pictures here, (I took 700...literally) I'll just post some of my favorites, and not all at once. For today, here's some from Vienna, which was I think my favorite city. Enjoy. :)
