As you may know, we’ve moved on from Seville to Paris for the last six weeks of the semester. I should probably mention that we’ve already been here for four weeks and are going home two weeks from today! I’m a terrible blogger, I know. Since so much has happened in the past few weeks, this post will mostly be a summary of everything (and mostly in pictures).
We only had two weeks of classes before spring break and my friends Danielle, Alyssa, Stefany, and I all decided to go to England and Ireland.
Our trip was amazing albeit extremely expensive, but we all decided it was definitely worth it! One of the best parts was probably being able to communicate with everyone in English!
Yesterday we took a trip to the beaches of Normandy, the American Cemetery and Memorial, and Pointe du Hoc. It was an incredibly powerful and overwhelming experience to be on the site where so many young Americans honorably lost their lives.
The service of our young men and women is one of the many reasons I am so proud to be an American.
Overall, everything has been going really well but I definitely miss home. I can’t wait to come back after I get through these final papers and exams!
Au revoir, Emily ❤
