Mr. Crêpe

Meet Mr.Crepe! He’s got the best specials in Bastille. A crepe, a panini, and a drink for 5 euro! I had to hit his stand and fill my tummy. He was so friendly and kind to me and mez ami (friends). Definitely coming back to this guy




Helping Hands for Paris

Me and a group of St. Johns students hit the night with goody bags for the homeless and hungry. Though we are a miles away from our homeland, it is still important to help the people that need it the most. We walked the streets of Paris and I was shocked to se the amount of homeless people in Paris. When you think Paris, you think city of love, Eiffel Tower, shopping- not Homeless! It saddened me to see the women, men, children and dogs  with hopelessness in their eyes. While walking around, I saw all types of shelters. One guy inhabited a phone booth, another with a cardboard box and another under a store awning. The hunger pains that haunt them day after day, night after night can be hushed for a little while with these bags of sandwiches, chocolate and water. So tonight the pain will cease for we are coming with great treats. G’night Paris.

CRIBS: Louis XIV Edition

J’adore Paris

It was truly amazing to look through this telescope and see the wonders of Paris. You never know how great somewhere is until you feel you’ve seen it all.

Dinner is Served

Dinner is served here at the Paris cafe. Everything on this plate smelled soooo good. My friend and I couldn’t wait to dive in. We assure you that our plates were clean. It was simply Delectable!

Arc de Triomphe

Here we have a beautiful look at the Arc de Triomphe.  I learned that this Arc stands to honor the French army after they had conquered most of Europe. Names of the  French soldiers were inscribed in the inside and all around the Arc. It’s detailed design, careful crafting and it’s significance is what makes […]

The Best View in Town

A view of the Eiffel Tower from the Theatre National De Chaillot. Its known to be the best view in town and it definitely gave me the chills.  There’s a romantic air about this place and that’s probably why its represented in so many love movies.

How I’m Living

This is where I sleep. It’s quite cozy if you ask me. Its not springy and uncomfortable as you would think college beds would be. It serves it’s purpose.
