During our trip to Europe last summer, we had the opportunity to spend a quick day in Brussels. One of my good friends Andy put together a great itinerary for things to see and do in Brussels. So let’s get started! I’d recommend beginning at Le pain Quotidien on Avenue Louise. There are plenty of other great breakfast places in that … Continue readingFritland, Delirium, Manneken Pis, And More At The Heart Of Belgium
This past summer we decided to take a back to back trip through central Europe, with the goal of hitting 8 cities across 5 countries within 9 days. It was crazy when we were planning it, and it was crazy living it. It was unlike my study abroads in Madrid and Toulouse, and vastly different than my solo trips to … Continue reading9 Days > 8 Cities > 5 Countries

A few weeks ago, I took an impulse trip out to Stockholm and took the DJI Phantom 3 Pro to film the cobblestone streets and ochre-colored buildings … Continue readingGamla Stan – Stockholm, Sweden
Much overdue video of our trip to Arcachon Bay during our stay in France. Located on the southwest coast of France, we visited this little beach town on our way back from Poitier and before our trip to Bordeaux.
About a week ago we visited several companies in Bordeaux, including Safran. Although we weren’t able to talk pictures, they did give us a guided tour of their facility. The company is a large conglomerate of many smaller companies and is a fairly new company, forming very recently in 2005, but does business all over the world reaching markets in North … Continue readingSAFRON Propulsion Solide – Bordeaux, France
About 2 weeks ago, we stayed in the city of Poitiers in western France, taking classes at the ENSEMA campus located at Futuroscope just outside of the city. Poitiers was quite different than many of cities we had visited thus far during the program. Unlike Marseille, Poitiers has much older architecture. Unlike Carcassonne, Poitiers walls were destroyed and left to … Continue readingPoitiers and ENSMA
