For the first time in over five years, I’m returning to Europe! In my early 20’s, I traveled a lot- between two semesters studying abroad in Australia and England, and a long-distance international relationship, I was able to explore cities all over the world. In fact, I started blogging when I created “Lauren’s Road Less Traveled” as a way to document my nomadic lifestyle. Oh, how things change
Alex is taking French classes right now, and I knew I wanted to visit Europe again before my graduate program started, so we figured that we either go now, or wait another three years until my graduate program is over. We found $650 roundtrip tickets last year and pulled the trigger! Plus, my dad is currently living in London, and one of my best friends from Washington D.C., Anne, is living and teaching in Aix-en-Provence, so we’re hitting
two three birds with one stone!
We’ll be gone for 10 days, and we’re using that time to see Paris, London and Lyon. It only makes sense for a foodie to visit the Food Capital of the world, right? Our train tickets and hotels are booked, but we’re still planning our days. And that’s where y’all come in to play. To all the Francophiles and UK expats out there – where should we visit? What are your tips for visiting France? Anything you can offer will be super helpful!
