Michelle Sohne is a student at Texas A&M University and an ISA Photo Blogger. She studied abroad with ISA in Paris, France.
This picture of ‘Notre Dame’ was taken on a casual morning on the way to the ISA Office in Paris, France. Everywhere you go, it feels like you’re in a movie.
The famous ‘La Louvre’ museum is free to students in Paris. I can go to the Louvre museum whenever I have some free time during the day or just whenever I feel like it. This is one of many perks of being a student in Paris.
‘The Fontainebleau Castle’ was an excursion with ISA, but this picture shows the new friends and memories you’ll make through your semester abroad.
A walking tour through ‘Montmartre’ with ISA showed me a unique town of it’s own within Paris. The street artists have some mad skills.
The ‘Quartier Latin’ is a popular area for students and teachers known with many neighboring schools, endless access to affordable food, school supplies, and stores.
The theatre “How to become a Parisian in one hour” was one of the funniest, entertaining, and most informative performances I’ve ever been to. You don’t want to miss Olivier Giraud’s show!
Authentic, home cooked meals in Paris are exceptional. At a home-stay, you become accustomed to the cultural differences in French dining etiquette while having the opportunity you improve your French talking about your day.
Dessert is a must. The patisseries in Paris are unavoidable. Not only do they temp you through the window, but once you try a bite, it’s impossible to walk past one.
Eating out is always a mystery. The restaurant ‘O Comptoir’ played live music throughout the whole course of dinner. The musician encouraged requests and even had one of the ISA students perform. I was a great welcome dinner from ISA Paris.
The ‘Gaumont Parnasse,’ one of the many cinemas out of the numerous things to do in Paris. Feeling a little homesick, go watch a movie that’s playing back at home. If you’re feeling brave, watch the American movie in French.
The world awaits…discover it.
