A Parisian Getaway

It’s been well over a month since I’ve been back now, and every day I think about how much my semester abroad changed my life.  Before, I was a traveler, taking in the sights and the experiences and creating memories.  Now I’ve become a storyteller, relaying my experiences through words and photos.  While it’s good to be home, I miss being a traveler, I miss collecting European memories!

One of the most eventful trips- Paris. The one that stole my heart more than I believed it would.  Here’s the story-

Luck of the Irish

Well, I’m finally settled back at home, but that doesn’t mean I’m done talking about all my adventures!  I’ve still got lots of pretty pictures to share, as well as stories to tell, so this blog isn’t dying out quite yet…

And it.

Was.

Awesome.

Until I found out it was National Cycling Day in Spain.

Which meant that there were no cars allowed to drive through city center.

Major. Game. Changer.

603?

A place straight out of a movie. Beautiful, green, serene, simple and endlessly fascinating, the two days we spent in Moultonborough, New Hampshire were beyond anything I could have ever imagined.

I made a video documenting our weekend which you can watch here, but no video or picture would ever be able to do this place justice.
