So as I mentioned a few weeks ago, my parents came to visit for April break! They arrived late morning on Saturday the 14th, so that day I showed them some sites in Nice and then the next day we explored Monaco (I took pictures but I’m not going to post them here because I’m lazy).
Then on Monday we took an early flight to Amsterdam!
Even though I’ve been learning French since middle school, I didn’t take my first college-level French course until my second year at UMD. During that first course my professor at the time (who also happened to lead my program in Montpellier, France the summer of 2015) told me about TAPIF.
Since this weekend was the second-to-last free weekend we have in Nice, Grace, Trey, and I discussed a potential Saturday trip to Lyon this weekend. Unfortunately after searching trains, buses, and even planes, we decided that a trip to Lyon was out of the question since the cheapest option was still over $150 round-trip. After some searching, we decided on taking a bus to Aix-en-Provence instead!
This past Saturday marked 12 weeks since I arrived in Nice and it has me feeling emotions, since there’s only five weeks before I’m US-bound again. The last two days were pretty busy for me, though, since I went on two day trips Friday and Saturday!
