Getting Ready for Peru & Blog News

In case you have not been told yet, I am going to be embarking on a ten day journey with my dad to Peru for spring break! This will definitely be one for the books because we will be hitting up Cusco, Machu Picchu, as well as the Peruvian Amazon. I am beyond excited to […]

Paris: Days 1 – 5

Even though school in Lyon has come to a close, I am still in Europe for another two weeks with my family in Paris! Although it is kind of a bummer not be be able to be home and seeing everyone in California for another two weeks while everyone else posts Facebook updates at the […]

Toussaint: Berlin

Hallo again! This post is going to be all about the time that I spent in Berlin, but unfortunately for me, I was only there for about two days before I had to come home to Lyon (still not a bad place to HAVE to come back to; I mean, look at this). Berlin is […]

Toussaint: Prague

Okay, I am finally getting around to writing posts for the Toussaint week even though I have been back for two weeks…sorry about that! Classes are really busy after a break because they want to be able to cram in two weeks worth of information into one day of class, so I’ve been listening to […]

Okay, first things first. […]

A Day in Beaujolais

Yesterday, on 29 September, the UC EAP Lyon program planned a trip for all of the kids in my program to go to Beaujolais and meet a French family who makes bread and makes wine…in their home in Provence. Basically, the coolest thing ever. Beaujolais is about an hour away, so we all got onto […]
