"Eh, Pepito!" Vatican City, Rome, Italy

My friends and I were able to go to the Vatican on a Sunday while visiting there. This was St. Peters square while waiting to see the Pope come to his window. Hundreds of people were holding banners and signs representing their organizations hoping to be seen by the Pope, and this agricultural group had yellow everywhere!

"Paradise" Bahía de las Águilas, República Dominicana

We traveled by public transportation (including buses, motorcycles, and vans) for 12 hours each way to reach this amazing beach off the Caribbean coast. It was in a very remote part of the country, and not many people venture out that far. This was absolutely the most amazing view I have ever seen, and it was completely worth the 24 hours of travel for one weekend.

St. Malo was the most beautiful and quaint sea-side town. Once you step through the gates, you realize a whole world hidden from the rest of France. The bay was sea-stained and intricate, and the characters so unique.
