Veni Vidi Vici

Today was an absolute breathtakingly beautiful day on the Ile de Bendor situated not far from the French coast along the Mediterranean Sea. I’ve had the luck of meeting the family of a dear friend back in Los Angeles who is originally from France. Her family has been beyond generous and hospitable to me, completely making me feel like a part of the family. With about a month left of my European adventures, I seem to appreciate more and more each day that I am surrounded by such amazing places I never thought I’d see. This is one island of a chain known as the Isles de Paul Ricard, named after the man who invented the Ricard, a local and favorite drink of the people in the south of France. While I haven’t tried it yet, I’m definitely looking forward to it. 

Can’t wait to see what this last month in Europe will bring my way.Today was an absolute breathtakingly beautiful day on the Ile de Bendor situated not far from the French coast along the Mediterranean Sea.
