To Do In: Barcelona, Spain

March 30, 2016

The first time I visited Barcelona this semester, I saw all the sites, but wasn’t there long enough to really appreciate the culture. The second time I went, I was there for longer, not by choice. My flight back to Paris was actually cancelled because of a French air traffic strike. So my friends went back to where they came from, and I stayed in…

To Do In: London

March 5, 2016

Big Ben: obviously everyone knows Ben. I even follow him on twitter haha London eye:  A ferris wheel made for having an aerial view of London, I didn’t go on it since I’m afraid of heights, the line was long, and it was more expensive than I thought it was worth. But some of my friends went and recommend it. Buckingham Palace (the changing of…

To Do In: Brussels, Belgium

February 10, 2016

When I was younger, my mom went on countless business trips to Brussels and that’s all I knew about it until I finally visited. I traveled there for a European Business Culture course, so the first day was spent in class. But the classroom we were in was in the EU building which was really interesting to see. We had lunch with all the EU…

Day trip from Paris: Champagne, France

January 29, 2016

Reims is in the Champagne region of France. The TGV (high-speed train) from Paris only took 45 minutes. First, we went on a tour of the Pommery Champagne House, which was very interesting. The tour was 90 km underground in the chalk caves. It was a mixture between history, the champagne-making process, and art displays. Champagne is my favorite drink and I never realized how…

Day trip from Paris: Fontainebleau

January 19, 2016

My first trip outside of Paris was a last minute decision to go to Château de Fontainebleau. We took the metro, a train, and a bus to get there. We also got lost walking, even though it’s a huge palace and we should have seen it from where we were. Once we arrived, it was obvious that we were in the right place. Fontainebleau is a beautiful…

Paris Guide: Montmartre

January 13, 2016

The first part of Paris I explored was Montmartre. I went on a tour around the area and learned a lot about it’s history. My favorite part is the view of the city from the church, Sacré-Cœur. It’s amazing how beautiful buildings can be.…

Bonjour Paris

January 7, 2016

I have wanted to study abroad for years now and the time is finally here. I packed my things in one morning and moved to Paris for the next 5 months. My airport and plane experience could not have been easier. I arrived in Paris and joined about 20 other people from Clemson University who are studying abroad with me. I found out my classes…

The Walking in Between

November 24, 2015

I took a printing class this semester where I learned about all different types of printing and I got to design a shirt. Obviously I chose my favorite lyric “life is not the mountaintops, it’s the walking in between” from Ben Rector’s song I Like You. I still remember the first time I heard it. The line just caught my attention. My friend and I…

In the Stream

November 6, 2015

On the drive from Nashville to Clemson in the Great Smoky Mountains, there is a long span of driving through a valley with no service and a long river beside you the entire ride. We decided to pull over at a random spot and explore. It was way better than we expected.…

A Weekend in Nashville, TN

October 22, 2015

      For fall break this year I decided to go to Nashville. I’ve been once before, but this time I crammed everything I could into our short time there. Not pictured is Hatch Show Print Shop (which was awesome because I’m currently in a printing class) and the two different times I went to Jeni’s ice cream!…
