Is it really my 3rd month in France? Wow how time flies. I have one month left in Tours and I can’t believe my time here is coming to an end. It’s been an amazing adventure traveling and settling into this cozy French city, and I have to admit I will miss all of it very much. I’ll save the mushy thank you blog for another day- I just want to share a few of my adventures since my semester abroad started.
I started off the semester with some trips to a few famous Chateau in the region: Chambord and Chenonceau
Then I moseyed off to Paris for a day…
After that I spent a few weeks in Tours enjoying the region and happenings in town!
And then! I met up with my dear dear friend Madison Drury from UA studying abroad in Rome in the magical city of Barcelona for a weekend.
After Barcelona, I made off to Paris once again- because who can’t get enough of Paris?
After Paris, I had a week off from classes so planned to go to Brussels and Rome.
The next weekend I met up with another dear friend, Rachel Solino, at her new home in paradise (Menorca, Spain).
We had the day off for Armistice Day, so I joined my awesome roommate Marie at her grandmother’s house in Neuilly (about an hour away from Tours).
The next weekend, the attacks in Paris happened. I won’t lie- it was scary. And I stayed up until I couldn’t force my opens open anymore listening to the news. I decided to include some pictures from Tours during the aftermath of the attacks.
Looking back, its been a whirlwind of adventures! I’ve met so many wonderful people along the way and I’m excited to make the most of my last month here!
