Starting off this adventure story series with my (so far) CRAZIEST travel story yet…SWITZERLAND!!! Emily, my friend from Maryland, and I started our day by having our bus cancelled on us. Great way to start any day. Once we managed to get on the right bus, 30 minutes later we arrived in Geneva and were dropped off at a random road, which didn’t look like a road we should’ve been dropped off at. Continue reading
I was nominated for the Liebster Award by Vee at thelovelywho.com! Thank you so much for nominating me as one of the nominees! I never thought that a little blog like mine would ever even be close to receiving anything. I think these awards are a great way to show other, smaller blogs that we are all in this together.
Coming home from France my first job was to reorganize my things because before I left I cleaned out my room so, my little brother could move into it. I had put all my things into boxes and now that I was back, it was time to sort through them. As I was, I stumbled upon a plethora of books. I looked at all these books spread out on the floor and I caught onto a theme…they were all, somehow, related to Paris, French, or France! And that’s when I realized that I might have a little obsession.
Here on exchange I have had the lucky honor to meet so many various people from all over the world. And along with that, came the chance to get interested and learn about new languages & countries. One of my good friends, Astrid, has gotten me very interested in her country, Norway, and the language. I have had the lucky pleasure to become close friends with her over my 9 months so far on exchange and can’t wait to visit her country some day, and maybe, hopefully speak with her in her native tongue.

Now I know that on my blog I have already written about Paris. In fact, if you’ve been with me a while and have kept up to date with my posts, you probably haven’t forgotten my Paris In A Day . We all know that Paris is too big to do a day trip to. And recently not only did I do a day trip in Paris but, I had a second chance to visit the beautiful city. The thing is that I only got to add one more day! So. How did I get to see all the main attractions throughout Paris with only two days to spare? Continue reading
Stumbling out of bed at 6:30 in the morning isn’t as magical as most would assume, at least not for someone who isn’t a morning person. As my grandmother and I took line 6 to Charles de Gaulle Étoile I knew we were in for a treat. First we got a little lost taking the metro and almost ended up taking the wrong one but, lucky enough we got back on track and found the RER A, which we took all the way to Disneyland. Continue reading
This past week I spent with my Grandma, who came to visit me during my exchange in France. During her week here we had a tight schedule. We saw Paris, Lyon, Aurillac, Clermont-Ferrand, and Disneyland Paris. But for only spending one day in Paris we had to get as much done without being too rushed. In today’s post I wanted to share my mistakes, my favorites things I saw in Paris, and sights to miss if you have limited time.
As many of you know, I’ve been staying in France or more specifically Aurillac. Though this town is composed of about 30,000 people, there are many decades of history. I’ve been lucky enough to learn and gather as much as possible over my many months here and I’m happy to share it with you guys today.
As many of my friends, family, and followers know I am on exchange in France and I am lucky enough to spend two months of summer in this beautiful country before I leave. With the end of school approaching I have little to no time to get my suitcases pack for a somewhat backpacking adventure. Continue reading
Summer’s just around the corner and there’s so much on my list of things to do! Just recently one of my friends said she wanted to hike the Appalachian Mountains. Looking into it we found out that it was almost a 6 month hike to finish the whole thing. And that was just #1 not in our age range, because our parents never would’ve let us do that yet and #2 not in our time frame, which I assume most people don’t have 6 months where they have time to go backpacking. (though some people may). So this summer I decided to have a fun get together with some friends and plan a backpacking trip.
