Avignon et Toulouse

Two weekends ago I took a day trip to Avignon, France which is almost on the southern coast. It was absolutely beautiful! It reminded me a lot of Italy because of architecture.

I finally, finally saw a Flamenco show this past week with Katie when she visited. It was amazing, and now I want to become a Flamenco dancer, even though I found out these professionals have been dancing since they’ve started walking (which is not exactly my skill level). I never realized the passion, the intensity, […]
