This twenty-year-old is ready to conquer the world. Sort of.
Let me conquer the City of Lights first.

europe

I spent the whole summer mulling over whether or not to still go abroad and whether or not Paris is where I wanted to go... but by the end of the summer I was still not any closer to making a decision.

When I got back to school I realized I had to actually start taking this whole thing seriously.

Things that I knew:

  • I wanted to go to Europe
  • I didn't want to do a homestay

So I did what any logical person would do. I found a map of Europe (gotta love Google) and made a list of places I was interested in going to and places that didn't appeal to me at all.


Places I could go:
Belgium
Czech Republic (Prague)
France
Italy
Spain

No desire at all:
Austria
Bulgaria
Croatia
England
Estonia
Greece
Germany
Holland
Hungary
Ireland
Latvia
Lithuania
Northern Ireland
Norway
Poland
Portugal
Romania
Russia
Scotland
Slovenia
Sweden
Switzerland
Turkey

And here's the conclusion I came to...

Belgium is too small. Don't want to go there. Prague (Czech Republic) is sandwiched between Poland and Germany. Don't want to go there. That leaves France, Italy and Spain. Well, if I go to either Italy or Spain I might as well go to France since I've been taking French for the last ten years. It would be stupid to be in one country over.

And so it was decided. I would go to France. But where in France?

Go to Strasbourg and the surrounding small villages. Paris is nice and fantastic but Strasbourg is a little more original.
