mémoires de voyager

Today I am in France. Today is a gorgeous day: the sun is shining, the air is crsip like the first bite of a golden delicious apple. The atmosphere is relaxed yet chic, modern yet antiquated, and despite the prevalence of most signs in English, still deliciously un-American. It’s amazing to be here – hearing a new language and seeing incredible views around every corner. The scenery in Europe truly can’t be beat. Kind of stinks that the US is newer than all of this and we’ve already done a great job of screwing up quite a bit of our own scenery. Cultural faux pas aside, I think this trip has been great. I want to rent a motorbike and drive it all around France. But first… to learn French!

– October 2007 in Biarritz, France, on a trip to the Basque country (Bilbao, Biarritz and San Sebastian) while studying abroad.
