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
This past summer we took a family vacation through central europe. On our way down from Belgium, we found a beautiful cathedral not too far off the highway in France. The following is some drone footage I captured using a DJI Mavic Pro over the church.
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
Over the past weekend, on our way back from Marseille, we had the opportunity to stop by the old medieval city of Carcassonne. Inhabited since before 300 BC, the city has some of the oldest architecture and history than any other city in France. Only an hour drive away from Toulouse, Carcassonne stands as a portal into the history of … Continue readingThe City on the Hill – Carcasonne
This past weekend we traveled to San Sebastian, Spain. We had the opportunity to join a surf camp while we were there and traveled to a small city, called Zarautz, west of San Sebastian. With beaches, mountains, hills, cliffs, and beautiful sunsets, this city was beautiful. This picturesque city in the mountains was the perfect escape. I recommend watching the video in … Continue readingGlimpse – Zarautz, San Sebastian, Spain
It’s been one hell of a week. I arrived here last Thursday night, and it’s been quite a ride since. Toulouse is a beautiful city, with great people, and the program has kicked off with a great start. Not going to lie that it hasn’t been a struggle adjusting, but it’s been an experience. So far, when we haven’t been … Continue readingLa Villa Rouge – Toulouse, France
Within the next hour, I will be on one of 3 connecting flights on my way to Toulouse, France, to spend the next 6 weeks taking classes in Aerospace Engineering, acquainting myself with some of the top Aerospace firms in Europe, and learning more about French Culture. While I’m not a stranger to traveling abroad, I can’t deny that I’m … Continue readingSummer in France – Le Projet Francois
Have you ever wondered how someone else just like you, but raised in another culture, lives their day? The photography project is aimed at making that more transparent. How does a student in France, compare to myself in the US? How does a parent in France, compare to their counterparts in the US? These are the questions I hope to … Continue readingLe Projet Francais
