Europe Trip

I haven't been able to post for a while because I just returned from an amazing trip to Europe with my 2 sisters.  Over the span of the last month we traveled to England, Italy, Spain and France.  The trip far exceeded my expectations.  These countries had so much history and were far more beautiful than I had imagined.  The towns are hundreds of years older than U.S Cities and the architecture is beyond belief.  I had taken thousands of photos over the last month and will be posting some of them over the next few weeks.  This week will be some of the beautiful cities that we visited in England including Bath.  Below are some of the pics I took at the stunning Bath Abby.
