follow the sun

good evening kids.
to start this post off right, here's my favorite ad in all of france.
maybe in the whole wide world:
i'm super sorry for the almost week long blogging hiatus, but i ran away to milan for the weekend (!) and since then been spending my afternoons on the beach and my evenings hanging out with friends.

this morning, i may or may not have skipped class so that i could skype b.
with this dumb time difference, we never get to talk more than 20 minutes because one of us is always running off somewhere or getting in bed or something, but 
finally we had a real conversation. 
here's proof:
please ignore that thing on his face.
that's his deployment mustache...
i forgive him because the rest of him is just so damn cute.

anyways, life has been amazing around here.
as i said, we went to milan this weekend!
it was crazy.
we ate so much pasta and pizza and gelato,
went up to the roof of this amazing cathedral, shopped a lot, and ate some more.
here are some picturas:
i realize we're miniature, but that's cause this thing was a giant.
and somehow they convinced us to pay 5 euros to take the stairs all the way to the top...

the shopping was also a success:
  a few cute things for me, and a few souvenirs for some pals.
i can't believe i just hopped on a train and took a weekend trip to italy.
partially because i hate trains, partially because umm, it's italy.
it was a good weekend.
but one thing i didn't like about italy?
the men.
one hundred percent disrespectful.

today was a little afternoon trip to st. marguerite island.
we stopped in cannes first, took a boat over, explored some, and then laid on the beach.
yet another beautiful view:

also, we tried snorkeling!
it freaked me out actually, but was cool to try.

i still have a moment almost every single day where i think 
"this is really my life?!
 thank you jesus."
coming on this adventure was one of the best decisions i've ever made.
thank you to all of you who supported me in that.
especially my family.

off to have some more fun.
fun in the form of speculoos secretly.

p.s- the awful angry british couple upstairs recently got a new dog.
a yippie dog.
best neighbors ever.

p.p.s- for those of you who couldn't care less about travel pictures 
[i don't blame you, i'm usually one of you actually]
i'm planning on posting a normal me post later tonight. 
don't even worry your pretty little heads.
