Florence V: Just My Luck
New Generation Festival-Night II When my alarm wakes me up, I head to the bathroom to get ready and this time I am not as nervous as I get dressed. I don’t try to leave a bit earlier as I did the night before and I don’t even put as much effort (or time) into…
Saint Jean Cap Ferrat
I ended up in this little hidden town called Saint Jean Cap Ferrat that was not at all on my radar. Cap Ferrat is nestled right below Beaulieu sur Mer which I fell in love with on a trip there during my study abroad days. I decided to visit Beaulieu once again on this trip.…
Beaulieu sur Mer
Imma let you finish but….Beaulieu was one of the best places of all time! ~Beaulieu sur Mer, France Pardon my Kanye inspired outburst but, how do I explain my absolute favorite place that I visited during my stay in France? The beauty, the calm, the soul bending experience of touching the purely divine. It helps…
On Wednesday Marthe wanted to get Marley hair so we went to the beauty supply store and I ended up trying (many) wigs. I settled on Beyoncé (wig style name) but the color I wanted wasn’t available so with the help of one of the store clerks, I was able to get the one on display…

Fun on Île Saint Honorat
We took a boat to Île Saint Honorat where we walked through wooded pathways and open fields to get to the ancient church/monastery. The view from the top was great and there was something mystical about the well right by the entrance. I noticed a guy down below taking a picture of the rooftop where…
Taking the Leap
School starts tomorrow and I am a bit scared on the inside. Everything will be in French. I feel like the guy in the picture except for the fact that while he’s got time to change his mind, I can’t back out. I’ve already leapt so let’s see how/where I land.
