I've been slacking on my blog lately (lately being over a month…) so I’ll try to post two or three successive blog posts! I’ll focus on my fall break in this post, since traveling is always interesting to read about. I split my fall break into two shorter trips, first visiting Marseille and then Edinburgh.
