France...sugar coated violet candies, Basilique St Sernin, warm panini sandwiches, Victor Hugo Market, La Garonne River, bike riding along the canals, tiny cups of coffee, Bastille Day, fireworks, beach days along the river, Pont Neuf, cassoulet, sweet nectarines, Lafayette Maison, filled donuts, sleeping in, violet and rose flavored gelato (everyday!), Jardin de Plantes, dinner beneath a brick ceiling with scientists from around the world, Capitole, crepes, chocolates sprinkled with violets, morning sauna, train ride, Carcassonne....a real castle, medieval cobblestones beneath our feet, blue skies, views of Greenland from the plane and a happy safe homecoming.

Jet lag isn't so bad when you have Hermies and Ladybugs to cuddle and dreams of France dancing in your head.

Oh Erin, what a wonderful semester it must've been. We could've spent so many more days enjoying that city.

Lovely photos! It looks like a wonderful place to visit...does it feel like a city or town? The rooftop shot makes it look like a true city. TFS!

Artisanallunwound it felt more like a city than a town. Quite a bit going on but also quiet corners throughout.
