As I’ve mentioned quite a few times, I was abroad in France during the summer for an exchange study group called Go Global – Stories in Motion, organized by the Vancouver campus of the University of British Columbia. One of the requirements for the course was to keep a blog and from time to time we would be assigned different topics to write about. As my last post, I shared with my class my experience during my time in Europe and I thought I’d share it on here as well because it’s just one of my favourite posts. I’ll begin with the original French version, but I’ll include an English translation at the end as well. Enjoy! 🙂
Annecy – little Venice of France – had always been on my top list of destinations to visit when in Europe. Since Jessica, my traveling companion who has pretty much appeared in all of my blog posts, and I purchased rail passes for four trips, the last being undecided, we agreed to pay a visit here. Joined by two other friends, we set out for a one day adventure in Annecy! View Post
A week following our second trip to Paris, Jessica and I set out to Nice to enjoy our lovely weekend at the beach. View Post
“Paris is the only city in the world where starving to death is still considered an art.”
I have been back in Canada for a few weeks now. Surprising how I was away for so long, yet I’m not suffering from post-vacation blues at all. Guess it must be because Vancouver is just as beautiful a city as anywhere else. Anyhow, thought I’d open my post today with this little quote by Carlos Ruiz Zafón from his book The Shadow of the Wind. View Post
First time celebrating my birthday away from home and of course, I had to celebrate it in Paris under the sparkles of the Eiffel Tower!
