A French Homecoming 2015

Thursday, December 17, 2015

In my Thanksgiving post, I mentioned a little tidbit about a trip to France. For the past two weeks, that's where I was: Spending time in the city where I studied abroad, doing research and spending time with loved ones I have not seen in over a year.

Throughout the entire fall quarter, I spent a lot of time applying for various research grants from my University and the History department in order to travel to Caen to spend time doing research about the reconstruction of the city after WWII. It's a project I have been working on for the better part of a year, and I'm so grateful to have had the chance to fulfill a dream of mine to do historical research in another country.

While the majority of my time was spent in an archive sifting through boxes and hundreds of historical documents, I did have some time to play as well. Here were my highlights from my most recent trip to France!

Seeing the people I love in the city I have come to consider a second home.

(as well as some quality Memoranda time...)

My favorite view, and my favorite foods.

My first time seeing the Musee de l'Orangerie, and Monet's Nympheas.

I've been absolutely swooning over them on instagram.

Being asked for directions (more than once!).

Finding the magic in the city of lights.

Would you ever go to France? What are your must-see sights?
