Feburary Vacations: Whole lotta running to do...

So, it's vacation time again in France. One thing I really like about French schools is how many vacations we get, which is fair because we do have classes for longer school days. Anyways, I have several plans for this vacation which is happening in four stages. Stage 1 was going on a bus trip to Venice with a few of my classmates with a group from school. Stage 2 is currently happening, where I am taking a few days of to work on homework and just get some needed rest. Stage 3 begins this Friday where I will be heading for Toulouse where I have some Rotary foreign exchange friends that I'll meet with and just hang out in the city. On Sunday begins Stage 4 where I will go on a Rotary bust trip from Paris to Barcelona. So, yeah, the next week and a couple of days will be jammed pack with excitement. I'd like to just thank my Rotary Club here in France, S├Ęte for paying for the trip to Venise and letting me enjoy my stay a lot more. Also a shout out to my club back in the States for giving me this oppurtunity. Below are some pictures from my trip to Venice that I hope you enjoy.

Still here!

So this is going to be a quick picture post. I'll be moving a lot soon, during the Feburary vacations I will be going to Venice on a school bus trip, then I'll go see some foreign exchange student friends in Toulouse and finish up the holiday with a bus trip from Paris to Barcelona!
Here are some pictures from the past few months!

London Town! I've got a bunch of pictures from this trip but this is certainly one of the best!

Every tourist does this.
