Day Trip to Paris, France

Monday, October 08, 2012

As promised, I want to tell you all about the day trip I went on this weekend..to Paris! This highly anticipated trip was so much fun, and was very educational as well. Before heading to Paris, I asked one of our CAPA professors what sites we should check out - especially any that would go hand-in-hand with the work we have been doing in class. Dr. Frith gave a few recommendations of places to visit during my trip to Paris, and I made sure to check them all out.

It takes a village to... get sick?

If there's something that I've had to learn the hard way in London, it's definitely getting sick. London is best known for its rainy days and unpredictable weather, and this is something that us TWC interns took a little too lightly these first couple of weeks. After running around the city, exploring day and night, through different neighborhoods and around massive amounts of people, we are all beginning to get into sick mode.

It's all about Potter

So, in my previous blog post, I REALLY wanted to write about this, but a small paragraph wouldn't do this event nearly enough justice. So, I'm dedicating this entire blog posting to... HARRY POTTER!!  

It's been a busy week, to say the least...

I hope you all had a refreshing week! I most certainly enjoyed the past few days in London, because my schedule was JAM PACKED this entire week. There are a bunch of places I was able to visit over the course of the week, and my classmates also got the opportunity to go to Bath and Stonehenge. I personally wasn’t on the trip, because of a class project I needed to complete on the same day (stay in your seats, I’ll tell you all about it)! However, I heard Stonehenge & Bath was a great experience for my classmates who participated!

Okay, I’ll admit it: I’m new to blogging.
