As the plane took off I had a full view of Barcelona one last time. Thankfully, I had 3 rows of seats to myself, so no one could see me crying like a baby as we ascended further and further away. On my last full day in the city, I...
If I had to choose one thing that I am glad I discovered here, I would say it would be pumpkin. I know that can sound weird but let me explain this to you. Everything began when my roommate Julia, one sunny morning of September, came home with a...
Spring break is coming. Next week, a large amount of you students will fly to warm destinations and sunny beaches. You will be drunk all day, partying with loads of students in Mexico, Florida or California. Well, that is the image that we, French people, have of the “Spring...
