Paris/Bordeaux/San Sebastian

Hi everyone!

Sorry It has been so long since I have posted, there are things to do places to go! This spring break I traveled with Greg from Paris down to San Sebastian, Spain. We had a blast, it was one of my favorite trips of all time! It was great to have a comfort of home here with me at the "half way point" of my 4 1/2 months here. I am so lucky that I have a sibling that is also a great friend and someone I want to spend time with. I am so blessed. Here are some pictures of ourweek together, enjoy!


Day at the Louvre Museum in Paris. 

Outside the Palace of Versaille. 

Our memorable/miserable sprint to the train station in the rain and wind! brrrr

First day running around in Paris.

Rented bikes and got lost!

Top of Notre Dame, awesome gargoyles! 

Greg and I found an awesome little restaurant in the middle of Paris, stone walls, great food and wine, and entertaining company.

Quasimodo is back.


Photo-shoot on the INCREDIBLE sand dunes in Bordeaux, France. This I believe was Greg's and my highlight of the trip. This trip here was very unplanned and last minute. We are grateful for this decision, because this was such a stunning and hidden place! These sand dunes spread for miles and when looking down the "spine" of these giant mountains, on the right is the ocean as far as the eye can see. On the left is vast plain of beautiful lush forest. It was unlike anything I have ever seen...

Finally made it to the top!


Greg delicately eating Gelato, always memorable. 

We rented bikes on the first day and rode around the coast line of the city. We stopped at this fun spot for a while to watch the waves crash up onto the rocks. 

bici rent bikes, Gregs "favorite" place.

beautiful sunset!

We hiked to the top of some mountain, not sure the name. BUT a beautiful view of San Sebastian, need I say more?

One month left, stay tuned!
