For the past few weeks I've been criss crossing all over Europe, staying in different cities for a few days at a time. Before this I'd only been to the United Kingdom and France, so I was excited to explore new European countries.
Because of the brevity of my visits there isn't too much to say about most of the cities. I'll share a few anecdotes here and there, but this post will be mainly photos. Enjoy!
Brussels was celebrating "Car Free Sundays" when I was in town, so the streets were bustling with life. I felt a very strong sense of community while I was roaming around:

Amsterdam has quite a few idiosyncrasies including the strong biking culture, the infamous "coffee" shops, and the beautiful cityscape. But perhaps the most unique, and in my opinion grotesque, part about this city is the Red Light District. I barely made it 5 minutes in the area before hopping back on my bike and leaving. Note to self: The Red Light District is not a place where a woman feels empowered.

Without a doubt, Oslo is one of the most expensive cities I've visited so far. Sloan, Montana, and I visited a health foods cafe, and my ginger latte cost me a whopping 8USD. Also noteworthy is Frogner Park, home to an interesting collection of phallic and suggestive statues:
