Have you ever eaten a pig’s foot?

Tonight I quite possibly made the worst decision of my life. I ate a pig’s foot, tail and ear. Go ahead and read that again.. pig’s foot, tail and ear. I ate them. Worst decision ever. Auburn and I were out to eat in Vieux Lyon tonight and decided to be adventurous. Or at leastContinue reading “Have you ever eaten a pig’s foot?”

Of Monsters and Men concert? Yes, please

Yesterday I went to my first concert in France. Gotta say, it was quite amazing. We went and saw Of Monsters and Men and they were absolutely magnificent live. I couldn’t have been more happy with their performance and I’d recommend them to anyone. Seriously, if you ever have the chance, go see them. WeContinue reading “Of Monsters and Men concert?

Tomatoes and mozzarella

I’m developing a strange food obsession over here in France. Like I said, I’m eating things I normally wouldn’t try at home and I’m loving them. Things like avocados and tomatoes. But there’s something that I love the most over here that I don’t think I’ll be able to get enough of when I getContinue reading “Tomatoes and mozzarella”

Pigs and Gypsies

I knew coming over to France that I would get a lot of attention. My blonde hair makes me stick out like a sore thumb in this country. However, I never thought the attention would be this extreme. I have to say that I’m already incredibly sick of a lot of people in this country.Continue reading “Pigs and Gypsies”

Cannes, you have my heart.

I don’t even know where to begin when talking about this weekend. All I know is that it can be summed up in one word: Indescribable. We arrived late Friday afternoon and the day was perfect for the beach. Funny thing is, we never really made it there. Friday just happened to be the Fête deContinue reading “Cannes, you have my heart.”

Field trips galore

  Today, we explored Hôtel-de-Ville in Lyon, which is like city hall in Lyon. It was absolutely beautiful. It was like a castle, seriously. As you can see from the photo above. Stunning. Most of the day, though, I spent looking forward to the trip that we’re taking tomorrow to Cannes. Auburn, Austin, Tessa and IContinue reading “Field trips galore”

My host sister is better than your host sister.

TODAY IS A GREAT DAY. I FINALLY HAD MY MEXICAN. LIKE REALLY. So.. basically I have the absolute best sister in the entire world. I was out this afternoon with Auburn for drinks and a snack, just walking around our favorite part of Lyon, taking in life in Vieux Lyon. Around the time we wereContinue reading “My host sister is better than your host sister.”

And so the quest for Mexican food begins…

I.. Need.. Mexican.. Food.. Soon.. Honestly, I’m not sure how much longer I can last without my chicken nachos from back home. It’s only been two weeks and I’m already dying from deprivation of the deliciousness. Not to mention chips and salsa. OMG. I’d kill for that right now. So, this undying hunger is whatContinue reading “And so the quest for Mexican food begins…”

A New Adventure

So, I realize I haven’t posted in quite a long time on here. I blame that fact on life. Life is crazy busy. But anyway, I figured now is as good a time as any to pick back up and update, seeing as how I’m IN FRANCE FOR THE SUMMER. Yeah, that’s right, France. IContinue reading “A New Adventure”
