What The Young And The Restless Star Eileen Davidson Really Did On Her Summer Vacation

Eileen Davidson has dazzled fans as Ashley Abbott on "The Young and the Restless" for the last four decades. There isn't anything Ashley hasn't done on "Y&R" — she's a Jill of all trades. Ashley has proven herself as an expert chemist, donned the CEO hat, and engaged in her fair share of steamy romances (via Soaps In Depth). Davidson doesn't appear as often as she did previously, but when she arrives on the scene, her presence is impactful.

Recently, Ashley had formed an unholy alliance with Nikki Newman (Melody Thomas Scott) and Phyllis Summers (Michelle Stafford) to rid their lives of Diane Jenkins (Susan Walters). Diane recently surfaced after being "dead" for years, and Ashley (and the others) believe she must be dealt with swiftly and effectively (via Soaps.com). However, they might hit a road block thanks to Jack and his love life developments.

However, despite Ashley's life being a stress frenzy lately, her portrayer, Davidson, has been living her best existence. Fans of "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" got an inside look into Davidson's life throughout her three season run on the show. Viewers know how much "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" love lavish trips abroad, and even though Davidson isn't on the show, she's still having the summer vacation of a lifetime.

Eileen Davidson visited multiple European countries throughout the summer

When she's not slaying scenes at all of Ashley Abbott's scenes on "The Young and the Restless," it looks like Eileen Davidson is living her best life on the vacation of a lifetime. In a series of recent updates to her Instagram, Davidson revealed she spent her summer exploring Europe. The list of countries Davidson visited would complete many people's bucket lists, and luckily for fans, she documented it.

The first post of Davidson's European holiday features a series of photos set in Paris, France. Davidson and her family are posing in front of the Eiffel Tower, and trying tasty French pastries. One follower referenced her "Y&R" character, writing, "Don't you live in Paris on Y&R? Why go there for vacation?"

Davidson's next stop took her all the way to Berlin, Germany, where she enjoyed the rich history of the city. In her caption she wrote, "BERLIN! An experience that will stay with me for the rest of my life. So much heartbreaking history and so much beauty all in one place." Davidson not only highlighted the history of the city, but she also took a moment to document the delicious German food on display as well.

Davidson's final European destination landed her in Scotland which according to her caption, took everyone's breath away. She said, "Edinburgh, Scotland! Beyond beautiful. Walking up the boulevard and Old Town reveals itself. We all gasped! Truly one of the most beautiful cities in the world!"
