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 […]

Au Revoir, France (Or at least, À Bientôt)

And so I have arrived in Santa Barbara for the summer. It is kind of surreal that I had been in Lyon for a little more than 10 months, but looking back on the experiences I have been here, it is much more believable. I have met the most amazing people here in France; not […]
