Brussels is a necessary destination for anyone who enjoys waffles, chocolate, frites and beer. Seriously, if you like those things then you must go to this city! It seemed as if every other shop sold chocolate, waffles or frites;...

With the new semester starting up, it’s kind of insane to think that I’ve been in France since September… and even more insane to think that I’m going to be here until May. The end of last semester was kind of sad—lots...

December 6, 2013
