I finally was able to make it to Paris! I fell in love with the city the minute I got there! It’s just as great as everyone says (minus the really confusing metro system.) I met my friend from home who is studying in England there and my friend from Toulouse who we were staying […]

Less than a month
I cannot believe that I already have less than a month left. It’s incredibly bittersweet for me. As much as I miss my friends and especially my family at home, I’m just finally starting to feel adjusted and comfortable here. But I know I am so lucky to be doing the things I’m doing and […]
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. My friend Christina and I just walked around and ended up finding a huge indoor market called Halle where we got to see […]
Vicenza, Venise, Verone, Toscane, et un peu de Lyon
I haven’t written on here since my trip to Italy so I figured I’d update everyone. I got back from Italy on the 10th and am now back to reality. Italy was absolutely amazing. My friend Christina and I stayed with a family friend of hers in Vicenza (they were American also.) Vicenza is a […]

Tomorrow will be exactly two weeks since I have left for France. It’s crazy how fast it is going by but I also feel like I’ve been here for months. I’m in love with this city and am starting to assimilate more and more each day. My French is steadily improving, especially my oral French […]
Jour numero trois!
There is so much to say from only being here such a short time! I have learned so many things. It’s crazy how when you speak another language enough you start to think completely in it. I’m even translating this post into French in my head without trying to. My host family is so nice! […]
I am happy to say that I successfully navigated myself to Lyon, France all on my own with luckily a total delay time of only 45 minutes. I flew from Bradley (“Hartford”) to Philadelphia on the smallest plane known to man (we had to put our carry ons with the rest of the luggage because the overhead […]
Three days and counting
It is a bizarre feeling to know that you are about to leave for France for four months in three days. I just spent my last weekend at Salve visiting my friends until next semester. I won’t be able to cross the Newport Bridge again until June (a sight I have to say that I […]
