Barcelona: Round 2

After our time in Madrid, we were feeling at least a little better so we were able to get up and go on our super early flight and not feel dead the rest of the day. After a healthy helping of Starbucks, we walked over to our hostel and got ready to go on the […]

Un week-end à Genève

I just got back from a two day trip to Geneva, Switzerland! I went with one of my friends from the Oregon program in Lyon, and we stayed with one of her high school friends who is currently studying in Geneva because she has a baller internship with the UN. She was also super cool […]

Story Hour

Hi friends! I have been updating my blog recently with just plans and random, general class information but now I believe that it is time for story hour, aka a bunch of the random things that have happened since I have been back but don’t merit their own subsection of the blog.

Paris: Days 1 – 5

Toussaint: Berlin

Toussaint: Barcelona

Third of all, Barcelona has a bunch of political and cultural problems that I didn’t even know existed (which is kind of upsetting since my major is International Studies with an emphasis in EUROPE). Okay, first things first. […]

3 Weeks of Class, 1 Week of Toussaint Plans and 1 Night Where I Got Really Sick

Hi everybody! Sorry for the hiatus, but I just finished up my last intensive language 3 week long class, so I finally have some time to update this blog. Even though honestly not much has been happening in my life that really calls for a blog entry, I thought that I would just update y’all […]
