Europe

I don’t know about you, but when I think about the south of France, I picture hilltop villages, lavender fields, herbs and fresh fruit, castles, and the French Riviera.

If you described to me a 15-mile-long gorge with an accompanying milky neon aqua-colored lake, I’d assume you were waxing poetic about Slovenia.

Anyone remember their high school superlatives? I never got voted in for anything, which I was quite happy about (cause y’know, can’t put homegirl in a box). But if I had to give my 17-year-old self a title, I probably would have been the Most Determined (to get the hell out of my hometown and make it into a top college), or Most Serious (a far cry from the goofball I am today, but back then I had no time for LOLs, chats, or fun).

Yep, that’d be me. I didn’t visit any museums, OD on pastries and sweets, or try snails or any other French delicacies on my recent week-long trip to Paris.
