Kicked off the 8 week European work-personal trip with a visit to Nantes, France over the weekend where I spent time with a college friend. I can't think of a better way to have begun orienting to Europe than devouring savory crepes and pain choc aux amandes, wandering around this historical city, catching up with my good friend, exploring the jardin des plantes, and ordering food off a menu I can't understand. Life is full of surprises and we're embracing this motto for the 8 weeks ahead!
