My Favorite Spots in Paris that aren’t the Eiffel Tower

This is my last week here and I can say that although I have visited a lot of places here, I still feel like I need 4 more months to finish seeing everything. But based on what I have seen so far I decided to make a list of my personal favorite spots in Paris that aren’t the Eiffel Tower and tell you a little … Continue reading My Favorite Spots in Paris that aren’t the Eiffel Tower

What Paris Taught Me About Sitting

It’s been 2 weeks in Paris now and I have really enjoyed getting into a routine and feeling like Paris is my home.

This past week has been filled with studying, winding down classes and beginning to do departure procedures. There are several things to take care of, paperwork wise, and it’ll take some time, so I’m getting a head start so it doesn’t pile up at the end. In the midst of all this craziness, though, the University of Bonn’s international office decided to do their “final farewell” … Continue reading (First) Farewell am Rhein
