First of all, shoutout to the Olsen twins for the inspiration on the title of this post (great movie, by the way). Anyways, a few weekends ago, I flew to Paris to visit a good friend of mine from Bowdoin and explore the city. I’d always wanted to see the city, and arrived ready to go with a list of favorite museums, parks, and landmarks in my pocket. On the list, I included Sacré-Coeur, the love lock bridge, the Louvre, the Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame, Musée d’Orsay, Arc de Triomphe, Jardin du Luxembourg, Musée de l’Orangerie, and Sainte-Chapelle. It was an ambitious list, but despite three straight days of rain, we managed to see it all, even fitting in time for a little gem of a farmer’s market stand called Chez Alain Miam Miam and Lenny Kravitz’s favorite kebab. Although the whole trip was incredible, I had several highlights that made the weekend especially memorable. I’ve included some pictures below!
It was an amazing weekend, but it feels good to be back in Granada for the last few weeks of the semester… More updates to come!

I'm an Anthropology major, Spanish minor, and am also pursuing a pre-health track in order to one day attend medical school. I love to run, and can't wait to explore the trails in Granada and the surrounding Sierra Nevada mountains. I'm excited to get to know a new city from the inside out, and want to visit as many quirky coffee shops as possible, immersing myself in Spanish language, culture and cuisine.</span></p>
