Going to New York

Not a very original title post, but I am packing my bags to go back home. What an amazing trip that I had. Visited 7 different countries in two months and countless cities. Will write all about my excursion in Spain in my next post, but for now I am anticipating the big city life once again! Heard the temperature is in the 80's!
Goodbye Europe!

Paris Arrival

I visited the Eiffel on a rainy afternoon. The entire trip was magical. I'm still excited to have experienced such new and beautiful surroundings.

Black on black trainer, thick black sole, this is my dream shoe.

I got this today and it is great for running as well as walking.

Rain in Riga

Rainy spring day.

While Riga's cobbled streets  are unusually empty, I am running around snapping photos of the historic architecture.

Went to Riga Birza museum for only 2 euros. 
Ended up seeing some great art from around the world. 

Quiet and peaceful day in this beautiful city.

Le Livre

Preparing a list of books to take with me on my bus trip.
Plan on reading these books before I make my stop in Paris.

I am halfway through reading #GIRLBOSS. Always remember, you are your own best investment!

Lessons in French, Hilary Reyl
An ambitious young American art student lands in Paris to assist a famous photographer, and falls headfirst into a glamorous international crowd of wealthy, famous, artistic strangers. Sound like familiar territory? The compelling way this bright young heroine finds herself and discovers her own truth makes this coming-of-age story feel fresh.

Paris Twilight, Russ Rymer
A mysterious Middle Eastern diplomat calls an expat French doctor home to Paris to consult on a mysterious patient, just as she receives a surprising inheritance—an apartment with a mystery inside. A bundle of love letters leads her on a path to a family secret, while her own love story blossoms despite the ominous backdrop. Absorbing, smart and beautifully written, it’s a Paris love story with a graduate degree.

Me Talk Pretty One Day, David Sedaris
Proof that not speaking the language of the language of the country you reside in is rich comedic fodder, Sedaris mines his early days living in Paris for tales of miscommunications, cultural differences, and relationship woes for everything they’re worth.
