Au Revoir Paris!

The Streets

I had a blast in France! From the fashion to the people, the museums and the architecture, everything was awesome. This was truly a once in a lifetime experience. When you first arrive, you’re a curious tourist, after our 6 weeks, we called it home. I know that by working hard and following my dreams, […]

Journey to Mona


My friends and I ventured off to go find Mona! Mona Lisa– that is. We walked from campus to the Louvre, it was about a 25 minute walk. Admission was free because we had our Art and Architecture cards, free is always good here in Paris. Every inch of this place was a photo-op. I […]

Showers of Blessings


It is said that if you travel to, and attend Mass at Notre Dame or Sacre Coeur this year, you will receive special blessings. Well I traveled to Notre Dame and attended Mass on Sunday and it was the Mass of all  Masses. When you hear Notre Dame, you think Hunchback of Notre Dame- I know. But this church was the biggest church I have ever step foot in. Its stained glass and high ceilings  were simply gorgeous. The service, though it was in French, went smoothly and I could sing along because I can read music and have sung in French  before. I snapped  a few photos for your guys. Check it out😉

The Burial Place


I took a trip to the Pantheon and it was very interesting. The art work was so detailed and it honestly evoked a lot of emotion. Here I stood in a place that history’s greatest figures are buried. Voltaire, Rousseau, and Marie Curie rest here in a dark and quiet  commemorative place where their memory and legacy are preserved.

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

A Tribe Called You

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.
