Anyway, continuing with the catch-up posts, I went to Bordeaux to see two of my greatest, most awesome friends ever: Naomi (who lives there, but is English) and Kasey (who's on exchange there, who's American). Needless to say, we had a blast together - I hadn't seen these girls since my exchange trip to France in 2009! It's hard having best friends so far away from home but totally worth it.
And as you all know, I let the photos to the talking most of the time. The black & white photos are mine, the others were taken by Kasey who brought her kick-ass DSLR with her.
Where we first met at Gare St. Jean - see the happiness in our faces!
Getting ready for a day of adventures. Wearing: H&M beanie, Urban Outfitters check shirts, Supre jeans, black patent Docs from eBay.
Naomi's building. I'll never get sick of the buildings in Bordeaux.
A random print in front of a store. Haha. IT'S US! No.
Couscous, ratatouille(!!!), roast chicken and spicy sausages. We used to eat this at our school in France, it sure brought back precious memories! PRESHMEMS!
Je Veux Mon Chapeau by Jon Klassen - *the* greatest children's book of all time. I think the English equivalent is called I Want My Hat Back. Wearing: H&M beanie, New Look acid wash sweater, Supre jeans, black patent Docs from eBay.
Other things I loved: Numb faces while walking through the streets of Bordeaux, cheap (but amazingly good) pate, learning how to actually enjoy wine (even 1 Euro bottles of it!), camembert and baguette after a meal, the ice on the floor that had been there since it snowed the previous week, walking to a club on a boat in the snow, crazy-awesome German electrojazz bands, how everything was as it was even after two years of not seeing each other.
And now, I'm off. But not off just anywhere, oh, no. I'm off to my first ever university lecture! How exciting! I feel like a bit of a losery first year student (probably because I am. I know no-one) but I'm hoping people in my classes are nice!
Have a good week, all x
