Hello! As you know, I love to travel. Besides traveling, however, when I'm not out and about exploring somewhere new in the world, I'm at home...watching YouTube videos to satisfy my wanderlust! ...yes, I know. I'm crazy when it comes to thinking about travel almost 24/7, not just from strolling through Instagram feed after feed … Continue reading My Favorite Travel YouTubers!

Bonjour! After a strenuous, all-day hike at the calanques de Marseille, the teaching assistants and I spent the following day exploring more of the city center of Marseille. Even though we were super sore from almost 20 kilometers of hiking the day before (I'm not exaggerating), we still did a lot of sight-seeing in the southern port … Continue reading Destination: Marseille, France- Part 2 (2017 Edition!)

Bonjour! As you might have recalled (or not, I won't judge), I spent a few days on vacation during this past February holidays in the south of France, specifically in the city of Marseille.
