Être française aux États-Unis: Interview with Stéfanie Nunes

Hey there everyone. I am currently on an interview kick at the moment, with my most recent interview being with my French roommate, Stéfaine Nunes. This post was also originally featured on The College Tourist, so check it out there if you are so inclined (or just continue to keep reading below!). I conducted this […]

La France me manque

      I found this graphic on another French travel blog, and totally related. Although I have been to a great deal of places since I left France, there is no country like it. I remember all of the good times I had on the riverbanks, in Croix-Rousse and of course at l’université. I […]

Actual Finals Week

EDIT: I realize I am posting this while I am already back in America, but I really did write it while I was in the midst of Finals Week (but then added some thoughts post the-worst-week-ever). IT IS FINALS WEEK. Although many of my friends in America will laugh because I only have two finals […]

Toulouse: La Ville Rose et La Ville du Pizza Volé (stolen pizza)

“Toulouse is the forth biggest city in France,” my friend said with a really fantastic French accent, “but the streets are small and the bricks are pink, so it feels small…like Beauty and the Beast!” And right he was.

“Go to Marseille,” They Said, “It Will Be Sunny,” They Said…

And so, after seemingly an endless time at school (in reality, about a month and a half), begins Spring Break! My friend and I decided that it would be a good idea to go to the south of France since they have sun and beaches and joy, which Lyon seems to be devoid of at […]

The Californians Go to Pérouges

The UC EAP program pulled through once again and planned a short afternoon trip to Pérouges, a small medieval city which is about 15 minutes away from Lyon. The “city” is a circle which you can walk around in about 10 minutes. They have a church / fortress where the people of the town used […]

Welcome to France, Mon Ami! [Lyon Edition]

Like I talked about in my last post about Paris, my friend from America came to visit me in France on his spring break. We spent the weekend in Paris and then came back to Lyon for week because I needed to go to school (unfortunately). It was really fun having him her because it […]

Welcome to France, Mon Ami! [Paris Edition]

Last weekend I went to Paris in order to meet up with my friend who was coming to France (from America!!!) on his spring break to come visit me, and it was, in a word, awesome. It was his first time in Europe, so no pressure Molly, but you’d better show him all of the […]
