UPDATE FROM ME

Hi everyone! I'm really sorry for keeping you all in the dark. With all the stress surrounding school and college right now, I am going to be taking a month-long hiatus.

That being said, my Twitter and Instagram will still be updated regularly, but my blog will not.

Thanks for understanding.

xoxo, Leena

SPRING BREAK PART 3

Day 3 was a day of travel.  We just kept stopping and visiting places when we could. Our first stop was Le Corbusier's Villa Savoye in Poissy, France.  



After spending time there, we got back in the bus and drove to Bayeux in Normandy to visit one of my personal favorite piece of art, the Bayeux tapestry.  This 70-meter long tapestry tells the story of the Battle of Hastings.


We continued our day with a trip to the D-Day beaches and the American Cemetery and Museum.



We finally got to Caen for our night there. We went to dinner (which was really weird) and then were allowed to have some free time.  This basically meant that we could wander the streets for an hour at night.  We ended up meeting a woman from Texas, and managed to get on the roof of our hotel.  Definitely a fun day :)

SPRING BREAK PART 2

Day 2 in Paris was an interesting one.  We started off with a fascinating bus tour (that I slept through) followed by an educational trip to the Pantheon (which we weren't allowed to go into) and then lunch at a cafe (the highlight of my day).


We then headed to Notre Dame Chartes, the first cathedral to use flying buttresses. Aside from the hilarious name, Chartes was really cool.


After Chartes, we drove back to Paris for dinner and a night at the famous and wonderful Eiffel Tower. 


We also met Rico from Hannah Montana (he has really long fingernails)
