flâneur

Upon entering my study abroad experience in Paris I had goals. I wanted to let myself experience as many things as possible without judgement or hesitation. I wanted to find my sense of freedom and spontaneity that I had somehow lost over the past two years. I am happy to say that I was successful in doing this. My study abroad experience provided me with the cultural education I needed to feel so comfortable in a city I had never been before, that I was able to take full advantage of everything it offered. It made me happy to just explore on my own and go off without knowing where I was even going. When I look back on my experience abroad, these moments were my favorite. When I went off in no direction but somehow was always going the right way. When I went to my favorite place in the city before I even knew it existed. And most of all when I walked with the freedom to do so and the freedom to not have anyplace I needed to be.
