About Me

Bonjour! I’m Ariel, a senior marketing major and international business minor at the University of Louisville. I studied abroad at Essec, a business university in Paris, France, for the Fall 2016 semester.

I love traveling, shopping, and eating my way through Paris and the rest of Europe. The only issue? I’m living the broke college student lifestyle. This blog was born out of my desire to share not only my experiences in the City of Lights, but also my tips and tricks for studying abroad, especially on a budget. Because who wants to be worrying over every penny spent when they should be having the time of their lives?

Check out my posts to read articles about my life in Paris, my travels, and my advice for living, traveling, and studying abroad.
