Weekend in Paris! or ‘Parlez-vous anglais?’

The Eiffel Tower at night

This past weekend marked the halfway point in our program. Summer is flying by, but I’m trying to make the very most of it. Thus, for our four day weekend I planned a trip to Paris with fellow Sweet Briar student Carolyn Hicks. As you might have guessed from the title of this post I do not speak any French (and neither does Carolyn) which spiced things up a bit. Before we left, I did make sure to learn some key phrases and since many Parisians have at least a bit of English we got on very well.

As I’m sure you can imagine, Paris was a truly incredible experience. I had never been before, so I stuck to some pretty basic and touristy stuff. Our Paris agenda included the Arc de Triomphe, the Eiffel Tower, the Luxembourg¬†Gardens, the Pantheon, Notre Dame, Musee d’Orsay, and the Louvre. In fact, we saw so much I ¬†think it deserves more than one post!
