Time to clear something up. Where am I from, many people have wondered… France? Non. Netherlands? Nee. U.K.? Nope.
I come from beautiful Kansas City, Missouri, USA. I just have trouble staying in one place for long, and I’ve quite liked it that way all these years. And this is my bike. 💚🚲 The bike that my mom bought me at an estate sale a few years ago for $35. It was brown and had been neglected for probably 30 years. For my birthday last year, my parents had it repainted for me to match the #fallingoffbicycles logo. 🎂💚🚲 And here we are together at a real KC gem, the @nelsonatkins Museum of Art. 🏸 Even though where I’m from is considered by some as “flyover country”, there is much to do and see here… like pose with giant shuttlecocks. 😉😂

If you’ve been following me here or on Instagram for a while, you already know how big I am on Study Abroad, and I must say, I studied in the best place in the world: Dijon.

This quarter, I contributed articles to the above FREE online magazine Insiders Abroad, once again. This time I wrote about two charming places, one in France, one in Belgium. Need a weekend away? If you’re close to Belgium, Ghent is a charming city that is accessible from many other places and makes for some great photos. The other article is about something very important to me: study abroad. I feel very passionate about people – especially Americans – spending time abroad. I hope you enjoy the article all about how I happened to study in a city that was not my first choice, but led me to so many other wonderful things in my life.
