I’m not crying, you’re crying.

Monday, May 15th: Right now, I’m sitting in my hotel room in Paris definitely not super sad that my European adventure is coming to an end.  My flight is tomorrow afternoon and this is probably the weirdest feeling I’ve ever felt.  I have so many amazing memories from these past nine months.

To make things worse, I picked my absolute favorite pictures of mes amis et moi during my time in Nantes to rifle through as a reminisce about my amazing french life.

February – Starting over… again.

After celebrating Z’s birthday at, you guessed it… La Bodega.

Since Mark and Daniel were both from California, I was obviously also from California (?).  Please notice how that is neither the US or Californian flag.
Ice skating
There were multiple advantages to living right next to an ice rink

This is literally my favorite picture of Kiana, I originally just wanted to take a picture of that *ahem* masterpiece while at the National Gallery in London, but I thought she looked prettier.

This is an old picture of Ana and I from Hamburg, but it’s appropriate because she was a doll and was able to visit Nantes so we could see each other one last time.

Last night in Nantes with the my super fun friends from Top Campus.

So that’s a wrap, Nantes.  All I can say from experiencing these past three and a half months  as an international exchange student is that I’m glad I had this lot of people to go through this crazy semester with.  Times were rough at some points.  Nantes weather was nothing to joke about, neither were our BS classes.  But we tackled this city together, and for that I am truly grateful.

Be careful who you make memories with, those can last a lifetime – Ugo Eze

Thank you, all, so much for making Feb-May a few months to remember.

*Next blog will be about my last 24 European hours, my feelings, and little snipets of advice about how you too can have a European adventure like myself but maybe a bit more organized*

Gros Bisous,
