If you are, or have been, an assistant in France that did not live in the European Union, you probably know about OFII (L’Office Français de l’Immigration et de l’Integration), since you, like me, need a visa to legally work here.

I am by no means a winter person. I’ve always preferred the flowers of spring and the beachy days of summer. I hate the feeling of my skin stinging when I come into contact with the freezing air, when my lips crack from the dry air every time I smile, and the endless process of putting on and taking off the many layers of clothing. But despite this deep hatred for winter and the bitter cold, I love love love the holiday season.

After a few lovely days in Nuremberg, I took a Flixbus for four hours over to Frankfurt, where I spent the remainder of my vacation!
When I told people that I was visiting Nuremberg, a good amount of them said something along the lines of “why would you visit Nuremberg? There’s literally nothing there!” to which I replied “Honestly it was the cheapest place to fly from Milan so I kind of just booked it without really thinking lol.” Well… to all of you doubters out there, Nuremberg was phenomenal and actually was my favorite place out of everywhere I visited!
After two days in Milan, Cahlia and I took the train from Milan Central Station to the beautiful city of Verona AKA the city where Romeo & Juliet takes place!
The morning after my day in Bordeaux I boarded a flight to Milan! I arrived in Milan in the mid-afternoon, but by the time I actually got into the city it was almost 5:00 since the airport is an hour bus ride from the city itself!
