During 9 months abroad I traveled as often as possible, for travel within Europe was inexpensive and easy. I made the journey to France twice during my year abroad – once to Paris with one of my girlfriends from high school, and once to the South of France to meet up with one of my university housemates.
My must-sees are the Rodin Museum and the Musée d’Orsay. I spent hours (literally) wandering each one. I spent another day and a half in the Louvre (if you love art, highly recommend planning for this!).

South of France
The view overlooking Nice in the South of France. We stayed in a great little hostel near the train station and spent a good amount of time taking in the sun and enjoying the food and drinks.
If that wasn’t enough of a reason to visit this beautiful region of the world, this one is a picture of the beach in Monaco. I highly recommend a day trip to this beautiful city.
The legendary casino in Monaco.
A perfect afternoon in the south, this time in Cannes.
