My Summer in Paris

I have always been infatuated with both art and travel, and last summer, I chose to expand my passion and travel to Parsons Paris for their three-and-a-half week summer intensive program. Carefree and ready to get out of the States, I ventured to Paris for the summer without knowing one single person or even the […]

When in Rome…

To put it simply, Rome was amazing. It’s also a city that you can see the majority of it/the hotspots in just a weekend which worked perfectly in my favor. We departed Barcelona at 4:30 am by a bus which brought us to the airport and from here we began our quick journey to Rome. […]
