Hello! My name is Lee and I will be spending the next four months in Nice, France. As of right now, I’m writing from the coast of Maine where I was born and raised. Tomorrow, I board an airplane, and I’m off to France. I put this short video together to introduce myself and to show where I am from. I love the ocean and I am especially looking forward to the Mediterranean Sea!
I study broadcast journalism at the University of Colorado at Boulder. Since I’m not taking any journalism classes (instead, focusing on French studies), I thought it would be helpful to video blog to keep up with my skills. In the future, I can see myself as a news anchor, or filming and editing my own videos, so video blogging is a great way to gain experience. Also, blogging is such a great way to show my friends and family what I have been up to!
Nice is such a beautiful place — at least from what I’ve seen from the many times I’ve googled it. I do not think it is anything like Maine or Colorado. I love the constant sunshine in Colorado and the wonderful ocean of Maine. I hope that Nice will combine the sunshine and the sea that I enjoy in United States. plus, I'll be in Europe! Spending a semester in Europe will give me the time to learn and adjust to a new and exciting culture. Creating video blogs will allow me to showcase the beauty and the culture of Nice. Also, blogging is such a great way to show my friends in family what I have been up to!
Be sure to check in again for the next video!
My name is Lee Foden and I am a journalism student at the University of Colorado at Boulder. Born in Maine, I love the ocean and am looking forward to spending my time by the Mediterranean next semester! I am taking a break from the Rocky Mountains of Colorado and headed to the rocky beaches of Nice, France. Follow my blog to stay up to date with all of my European adventures!
A month ago, if I were able to fly home early, I might've done it. Adjusting to life on the island has been difficult for me. Physically and mentally I’ve struggled to adjust to the small town that is San Cristobal.
My first post on London is about one of my favorite things, public transportation! My friends all know that I am a subway connoisseur, and I couldn't wait to get to know the Underground. London's Ungerground, or most often called 'The Tube', is huuuuge.
I did the online research and hunted them down to bring you this: an ultimate list of my favorite Dublin coffee shops and restaurants that allow you to get work done with a coffee in one hand and a pen in the other.
It’s finally fall in Barcelona. I shiver without a thick sweater, and the light fades come 7 pm. With the new chilly weather I find myself craving comfort foods. Nothing is better than sitting in the many cozy cafés Barca has to offer.
