Bonjour mes amis! Many of you have been asking why I’m in Paris, for how long, and, most importantly, what I’ve been eating while I’m here. I thought I’d write a post and update everyone on how things are. Spoiler alert: they’re great.
I’m in Paris for a six week study abroad program with nine other students. I’m studying French Culture, Art, and Civilization, which means I’m spending most of my time at some of the best museums in the world. I’ve only been here two weeks and I’ve already been to Notre Dame, St Denis, Chartres, Sainte-Chapelle, the Eiffel Tower, Versailles, the Arc de Triomphe, the Musée Carnavalet, the Musée de Cluny, the Musée de l’Orangerie, and the Louvre (twice!). I’m exhausted, but loving every minute of it!
It’s a scary thing living 3,625 miles from home. I knew I’d be challenged to grow when I decided to take my very first flight abroad to live in a country I had never even visited. But I’m having a great time doing things that push me out of my comfort zone. I rode on a hot air balloon even though I’m terrified of heights. I tried escargot. I ordered a chocolate croissant in French even though I feel like I have a toddler’s vocabulary. It’s scary, but it feels great.
For anyone who has been to Paris, please leave a comment or send me an email with your favorite spots to visit and must-eat pastries. Merci in advance!
