This is the first of many posts to come about the magical city of Paris, whose streets I was lucky enough to spend a semester strolling through!
Versailles is one of the most beautiful places I've ever seen. There's not one single leaf out of place...it's pretty enchanting. Paddle boats on the pond and picnicking in the park. His name was Louis XIV, welcome to his crib.
Anyone who has ever gazed at a Monet painting should spend a day walking around his dreamy world in this tiny town in France. There’s a reason his paintings have captured the eyes and hearts of so many, and this place is it.
When I was studying in Paris, I took a day trip to Normandy to see the D-Day beaches, and I’m so glad I did. It was sobering, but also incredibly powerful.
