Lately, I think about this trip all the time. I think that means a new trip is in need very soon. My backpacking trip was one of the most meaningful trips I have ever been on. I was as happy as a clam, nothing could bring me down. We got the most out of the trip by foot, and saw everything without any complaints. I was floating around pretending I could speak french and ordering all these weird things I would never normally eat. Not only did I surprise myself in so many ways, but I also surprised others around me because everyone doubted me. “Oh you’ll never last that long with a bag that big- you’re too SMALL- good luck carrying it” or “How are you going to be without a blowdryer!” And my responses to these questions were simple…
1. I am small, but I will carry it , even if my bones break. AND I DID. I got some serious muscles too.
2. I don’t need to worry about going without a blowdryer, because I have a converter! HA!
Anyway- the reason I am writing this post about Paris is because it is one of the most beautiful places(at least I think so) and I feel obligated to tell everyone about how amazing it is. You must see it for yourself though, my pictures cannot do it justice. Also if you are someone who is interested in different types of fashion and avante garde outfits, Paris is the place to be- there are so many styles and so much to take in. With beauty surrounding every inch of that city, it’s hard not to fall in love with it.
These photos were taken in Paris, but also in southern france (Bordeaux)…
My pilgrimage to see where Jim Morrison was buried.
Nicoise salads all day everyday.
Bordeaux for a wine tasting.
Breakfast was always simple.

Looking homeless, wearing everything I own
The best Sangria & the awful kissy face-I’m glad I stopped that.
The cathedrals were beautiful
