As you read this, I am most likely frantically packing at last minute and adding things to my suitcase that I will never use. In a few days, I leave for a study abroad program in Paris! I'll be gone for six weeks, during which I'll take two classes, all while making Paris a home-away-from-home. I'll also be traveling on the weekends to Germany, Switzerland, and possibly Italy! Now as to how I'm supposed to pack for six weeks in one suitcase, I have no idea where to even begin.
So far, I've compiled a few lists of places to see, eat, and wander in Paris and in the surrounding areas. My goal is to see as much as possible and document it with photography. As some of you may know, one of my main passions is photography - that being said, this trip is going to provide me with some unique photo opportunities, which makes me that much more excited.
You can also guarantee that I will eat my way through Paris - apologies in advance for the large amount of foodstagrams you'll find on my Instagram (but also, not sorry). If anyone has any recommendations for food (or anything else, really) in Paris, I would love to hear them!
The last time I went to Paris, I was nine years old. So, I only remember the most random snippets, such as playing cards with my sister in our hotel or how sticky my hands got after eating an ice cream cone from a place called Berthillon. I am beyond excited to make Paris my city for six weeks and see all that I can.
If you want to keep up with my adventures, I will be posting here on the blog! You'll likely find more frequent updates on my Instagram: @caitlinmarie17.
In the spirit of my trip, Au Revoir!
