And so the journey began..

On an amazing roller coaster ride through  life! My travels have been nothing short of an adventure and I am truly enjoying every second of my time abroad. I am not one who normally speaks on behalf of what I love but this trip has already opened my eyes to so much and I am eager to continue through my program and visit the remaining sites. Three days down, over 40 more to go!

Since last weeks update I have seen a handful of cities, and traveled from France to Spain. My Study Abroad course began this Monday and since then I have been non-stop exploring (with naps included) the cities I am staying in. Currently, we are in Madrid and heading to Barcelona tomorrow morning to continue on our tour of Mediterranean cities. Who knew school could be THIS fun?

Bordeaux, France

I took the local metro bus into the heart of Bordeaux and decided to wander around until I saw all that my eyes were attracted to – which happened to be a lot! At first I stopped in a patisserie for a quick breakfast and stuffed my leftover croqúe monsieúr in my purse before heading out to see more of the city. I decided to head towards the water and follow paths that led to high church towers. If I saw it peak out behind a building, I walked in its direction. That path led me to beautiful sites and made me fall in love with the Place des Quincones fountain!
