L’été à Paris

Week 2

I am now a quarter of the way through the program and do not want to even think about leaving Paris. The streets, the food, the culture…I fall more in love with the city everyday. Monday I began my internship at Les Vistes de Maud, where I will be helping her with visits, working on the website, and writing blog posts.

Tuesday we went to Versailles to give a private tour of the gardens to an adorable couple and castle and I managed to take a lot of photos (click to make them bigger and to read some information about the photos!).

Wednesday we continued the visits with the couple and toured part of the Louvre and Musée d’Orsay.

Thursday was a national holiday and I spent the day wandering around the 13th arrondissement and Île Saint Louis, before picnicking along the Seine.

Friday I woke up verrrry early to catch a bus to Deauville, where I met up with the rest of the students on the beach (pictures coming soon). We then took another bus to Honfleur, a quaint town where we ate a late lunch.

Saturday I explored the quarter around Canal Saint Martin, a canal that cuts through the 10th arrondissement. There were wonderful restaurants and shops along each side, bridges over the canal, parks, street art, and even boats you can rent! I returned there Sunday night for another waterside picnic (this seems to be a staple of my dinners here).


Until next time!
