My cousin is spending a semester abroad in France and has a blog (with videos!) to document her experience. Here is her bio and a link to her blog!
“Hi! My name is Alison, and I am a biochemistry and French double major at Colgate University. Beginning in January 2014, I will start my study abroad adventure in Dijon, France, at the Université de Bourgogne.
The reason behind this website is to keep everyone back home filled in on what I’ve been up to while I’m away. I hope to be able to make a weekly post in the form of a video. However, I realize that as I will probably be busy a lot of the time, I may not be able to do that. If I am short on time, I will write a short blog about that week and follow up the next week with a video. Keep checking back for updates!”
