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.

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
Before getting into things I wanna let people know that I am NOT a travel expert or experienced at all so, everything written in this travel guide are some tips and tricks, places to see, and other things!
For spring break I spent one week in the South of France with two of my close friends. We ended up getting a great host family for the week and seeing a lot of Marseille. We entered the city by bus and headed to la gare de Marseille-Saint-Charles. We got a quick tour of the city from the car and got a quick feel for the city. On Monday, we headed to the calanques and saw the breathtaking views, you can check that out in my other post.
If you ever just happen to stumble into Marseille there a few things worth noting. Yes, you can check out the Notre-Dame de la Garde, the Vieux Port, Palais Longchamp, and all those other things you get when you search Marseille into Google but, one of that things that I highly recommend is Le Parc National des Calanques.
So last month I posted something on Facebook asking people to write me some questions they had for me regarding my exchange, life in France, how applied, or just really random things. I also am partnering with my good friend from Maryland who is on exchange with me. So, some of the questions my be from her Facebook as well. (if you wanna check her out, the link to her blog is down below.) And here’s what I got!
Oh how time flys. Before leaving everyone said it was going to be fast and honestly I didn’t start to see how fast it was going till my friend Gina stayed with me in December. She’s here for 5 months so, at the end of January she leaves to go back home. Realizing that she was leaving was a punch in the face because I realized that if her exchange went by that fast then mine wouldn’t be any slower. There’s so much I’ve learned, besides the language, since being here for five months and there’s so much happening in the next five months that I am so excited to announce!
It’s the last day of Blogmas! And for today’s post I’m linking my Christmas break video but, stay tuned for a New Years Eve Part!!!
*p.s. from now on, since I’m not going to be posting everyday, my plan is to post 1 blog every weekend (at least). But if I happen to write more than there will be more. Knowing me there’s bound to be some crazy stuff 😉
When you go on exchange, no when you go to a different country in general, you know that you’re in for a real treat. That strange, crazy things are going to happen and this was no different for me.
I’ve gotten so many people asking me how my french is coming along. And to tell the truth, if you want just a simple answer, I don’t know. But since people have been asking I thought I would just answer it right in this blog. So, if my simple answer didn’t please you and you want more info continue reading.
