Normandy Excursion!

My IES Abroad program is so wonderful because we get to go on multiple excursions as an entire group! These trips allow for new connections and the opportunity to visit places in France we may not have seen otherwise. These trips are through IES Abroad, so we speak en français the entire time ... to the best of our ability. There are always a few moments where you forget and say something in English, but then remember: "En français s'il vous plaît!" I tried to make this video short and sweet, but also show some of the fun we have with each other during these crazy weekends. Although the weather was not necessarily in our favor on the second day of travel, it definitely created some hilarious memories. I also included a video of a Friday night activity that was hosted by our wonderful assisstants. We all made and ate crêpes together as a cohort. I thought the video of Grace flipping her crêpe was special because it shows how much support we all have for each other in this program. We are all going through similar changes, but I love that we all want each other to succeed. I hope you enjoy!!
