As of tomorrow I’ll be spending *almost* a week in Pennsylvania traveling with some best friends and will therefore be posting a ton, obviously..

Even though this was the place that I had my first and only interaction with boudinContinue reading “Chez Martial”
One week. That’s it. One week from now I’ll be on a plane hating life because I’m no longer in France. I can’t even describe how I feel when I start to think about leaving this place. I know I’ve missed home at times throughout this trip but now I can’t even imagine leaving. IContinue reading “And the countdown begins…”
