Another Day in Rennes

I did laundry over the weekend and on Monday I spent the day in Rennes. Once I hopped off the train at Rennes, I took a walk around town and came across the Marché de Noël site before scoping out the area I was going for an appointment and the walk was invigorating.

Last Days in France

I decided to leave early from Nice due to stress. After having a semester filled with the most amazing experiences of awakening and growth I still felt that I could not keep up academically. During my last week in France, I spent my last days studying really hard and praying that I would pass all […]
