Okay, I know you all want to hear about my time in France so far, but I had this post started and I like things in chronological order so you get this one first 🙂 I’m working on posts about Paris and my apartment though! Coming soon… stay posted!

Hey everyone, just a quick note to say I made it to Paris! Courtney and I are currently sitting in a McDo (McDonald’s) using their free wifi. I have somewhere to stay the three nights I’ll be here in Paris and then early Sunday morning I’ll head down to Nice. No big mishaps on the trip, we got all our luggage, more details later!
There are A TON of places I want to go while I’m in Europe; I plan to take mad advantage of the proximity of many different countries, ease of travel, and people I know in Europe. However, I also need to be aware that traveling costs money and I’ll be living on a limited budget, so I need to pick and choose places I go. That being said, there are a few places I DEFINITELY want to go, and I even have some plans in the works already.
First up: PARIS! I’m flying in and out of Paris, and when I first arrive Courtney and I are going to spend a few days there. I’m not sure what exactly we’re going to do since we’re only going to be there a few days and will be dealing with jet lag and such, but before my time in France comes to an end I definitely want to see all the sights Paris has to offer, like…
I didn’t go to Ikea at all this summer, but if I had my own place, I have no doubt I would be there weekly. Hilarious Swedish words + cheap home decor + assembling your own furniture = awesomeness.
If you’re not aware, Woodfield is a HUGE mall that nearly gives me a conniption every time I walk in, especially during the months of October to January. WHY DOES IT HAVE THREE FLOORS?? However, it is nice to have nearly every store I can imagine 6 miles from my house, all in the same building. It’s convenience to the max.
