Day Trips in Provence, France

Provence is one of the most popular regions in France, and it’s really not a surprise. The idyllic countryside dotted with purple fields of lavender, small towns with markets selling everything you could need, and, of course, Homer’s wine dark sea – the Mediterranean. Provence is filled with beautiful little towns, which all have theirContinue reading “Day Trips in Provence, France”

Spain 2015

In the summer of 2015, I spent 3 weeks in Sant Cugat, Spain (just outside Barcelona) with some friends of my family. It was on that trip that I started this blog, and though the blog has changed a lot since then, I still want to preserve those old posts and put them somewhere forContinue reading “Spain 2015”

Italy 2018

Studying abroad in Orvieto, Italy was one of the best experiences of my life so far! I really fell in love with the country and everything it has to offer, and it was pretty hard to contain that excitement. In the 5 weeks that I was there, I wrote 9 separate blog posts gushing aboutContinue reading “Italy 2018”

France 2018

In the fall of 2018, I had the incredible opportunity to spend the semester studying abroad in Aix-en-Provence, France. It was an amazing time in my life; I saw so many amazing places and also learned a lot from my classes. That’s a very nerdy thing to say, but I honestly took some great classes.Continue reading “France 2018”

Traveling Alone: Paris, France

Paris, Paris, Paris,De mes amours c’est lui le favori Josephine Baker really put into words the enchantment of  Paris.  The  above lyrics are from  “Paris, Paris, Paris,” which is a song that says “Paris” so many times that it stops sounding like a word.  However, it is also one of the songs that was playingContinue reading “Traveling Alone: Paris, France”

Italian Beaches and Wonderlust

As we near the end of January and I work on planning out my blog posts for the upcoming months, I decided that, rather than a travel post (because I have been very busy), I would post this reflection on the title of my blog – Wonderlust Writings. But first, it’s January, and I’m  getting […]

Reflecting on Study Abroad

One year ago, I returned from a semester in France.  I’ve had a decent amount of time to reflect on this and to think about my experience and what advice I would give to other students.  Given that I am writing about the entire process of this from picking a program to coming home, thisContinue reading “Reflecting on Study Abroad”

Reflecting on Rome

Rome, the Eternal City.  I spent a weekend in Rome while I was in Italy last summer, and despite the heat and crowds, I still really enjoyed it.  There’s a reason it’s popular, after all!  For me, one of the thrills of Rome is the age of everything – like a lot of places inContinue reading “Reflecting on Rome”

Top Five – Semester in France

With less than a week left here in France, this will probably be my last post for the semester (finals and a flight are really all that remain).  Overall, this week was pretty chill – final presentations, end of semester discussions, and free food.  CEA, my study abroad program, offered a Stinky Cheese Tasting aContinue reading “Top Five – Semester in France”
