I haven’t been “Everywhere” but it’s on my list…

So you agree? You think Giverny’s really pretty?

Since Giverny closes for winter on October 31st, we decided to go plenty of time in advance…October 30th, of course.

London…so hot right now…London.

It honestly might be my favorite third favorite city in Europe, after Cannes and Paris, bien sûr. Continue reading


One of the best parts about studying abroad is being able to visit other places in Europe, like Cannes, Nice, Rome, Corsica, and, this past weekend, Amsterdam! Yup, Jeremy and I packed up and caught a train to the Netherlands.

We were our usual weirdo selves, of course…

Château du Clos Lucé

Somehow I mixed up my Leonardos, and wound up at da Vinci‘s château instead of DiCaprio‘s. Quel dommage. But as it turns out, Leonardo da Vinci was kind of a badass and invented, like, 6000 things, including the helicopter and the latex condom. Continue reading

How To: Mexican in Paris

As heavenly as baguette avec fromage et confiture is for every meal, every once in a while you start craving American food, you know, like pizza and Chinese take-out. So while my friends and I were in Nice last weekend, we decided to faire la cuisine that we missed the most from the States: Mexican.

Rome: The Eternal(ly Smelly) City

While in Cannes this summer, three of my friends and I decided to take a long weekend to Rome. We visited the monuments, ate gelato, practiced our Italiano, and obviously it was fantistico, but, I’m not gonna lie, it’s been my least favorite of the cities I’ve visited in Europe.

En Corse

What happens en Corse…shows up on my blog later.

I would like to tell you a little bit about my trip to the weirdest place in the world: Corsica. “WTF is a Corsica?” you might ask. Well, after taking a history of Corsica class and then spending 10 days there…I still couldn’t tell ya. Continue reading

Wouldn’t it be NICE?

If you know anything about me, you know my love for the French Riviera. Cannes is, and will always be, my hood away from hood. That’s why Jérôme, Kat, Chelsea, Sarah, and I (and Mari Cohen in spirit–DAMN YOU, EASYJET!) took it upon ourselves to take a weekend off from our busy, stressful pretty chill lives in Ole Paris to spend some time sur la Côte d’Azur. I know, poor us.

Weekend in Nice, anyone?

Betches Love Châteaux

Yesterday we visited a château. Betches love châteaux Salopes aiment les châteaux.

Château de Chenonceau. Can you believe some pro built this for his mistress? And I was content getting a Sonic slushy!

Côte d’Azur

Before I start unloading about the ups and downs of being a broad abroad…

I would like to take you to where it all began,

Going to a place called Cannes!

Brand new, unused, passport in hand,

Horrifyingly American Jack Rogers on feet,

One Professor Glacet is who I was going to meet,

Leaving the country for the first time was quite the feat!

Thinkin’ I was real Frenchy and all,

I exclaimed something along the lines of, “Bonjour, y’all!”

Yes, that might have been the start of my down fall…

Let’s hope for the sake of the readers reader–HEY MOM!–that this is the first and last time I get poetic, because, you know, it would be pathetic, if I made a reoccurring theme of using an AAA BBB CCC rhyme scheme…just kidding…but really.

Anyway, my summer on the French Riviera was très magnifique. I got the chance to attend a few movie premieres at the film festival, lived with the most badass 83-year-old widow you’ll ever meet–Shout out to Madame Clermont (in case she ever gets a computer) SUP WOMAN!–went kayaking in the Mediterranean, performed karaoke on several occasions (the French just couldn’t get enough!), caught a boat to Corsica, hit up Rome, Nice, Monte-Carlo, and–my favorite–ST. TROPEZ, and made awesome friends.
