Day 3! Today I arrived in Paris via Eurostar. We went through the chunnel and came out in France. After going from the station to the hostel/living quarters for the next 6 weeks, I joined a group and we took the metro to an area of the city (I think it was the 10th arrondissement). We were walking around trying to find a place to eat. We ended up at a creperie called Cat’Man (yesssssss). I had the Elodie, which was a gallette filled with bacon, potato, egg, and cheese. It was basically a breakfast burrito-crepe. Then we walked around some more and stumbled upon some beautiful buildings. Then we venture further and there it was, Notre Dame. We only stayed for a little since it was beginning to get dark, but it was an amazing sight. I hope to visit soon so I can go inside and see those famous rose windows. Then across the river was the famous Shakespeare and Company. Next time I think I will buy a book from there.

Day 2 in London!

So today we had our tour of London by bus and we got to stop and see a lot of sites. I got to see Buckingham Palace, Westminster Abbey, Big Ben (Elizabeth Tower), Tower Bridge, London Bridge, and so much more. After the tour I was able to stop by the National Gallery and see Van Gogh’s Sunflowers. Then I traversed to Convent Garden, checked out the shops, then went back to the hotel to get ready to visit some local pubs. London has been so fun! I will be leaving bright and early tomorrow for Paris.

Day 1 on study abroad!

After traveling from SFO, rushing to make my connecting flight in Atlanta then going through customs in Heathrow Airport, I am finally taking a small moment to debrief all that has happened on this day. Met some cool people today and explored a little. I visited Camden Town and King’s Cross Station. The architecture here has been so beautiful and tomorrow on my grand tour of London, I will see plenty more. Hopefully, I will add more tomorrow after my full day of sightseeing then I am off to Paris!
