Nearly a month ago, I left for academic travel with my entrepreneurship class. Although my peers traveled as far as Botswana, Iceland, and southern Italy, my class stayed in Switzerland, visiting Geneva, Lausanne, and Bern. I had visited both Geneva and Lausanne earlier in the semester, but I really enjoyed discovering Bern for a few days. Despite being cooped up in presentations from start-up companies, IP offices, and organizations of the likes, the time we spent exploring the towns (aka eating & shopping our way around) was enjoyable. The best part of those two weeks, though, were when we were able to part ways with the group and either travel home to Lugano or go elsewhere. My two friends (Claire x2) and I rented an Air BnB situated right next to the Musée D'Orsay in Paris, and we spent three days there living like true Parisiens. I assumed the role of tour guide, taking them to my favorite corners of the city-- notably, Centre Pompidou, the restaurant L'éventail, Angelina's for hot chocolate, and the top of the Arc de Triomphe, among other locations. This was my first time back in France since I went the summer after studying abroad, which was nearly two years ago, so it felt good to be back "home".
