We can't believe it's already day 10 and our research is coming to a close! Our last market visit consisted of a trip to the Marché Président Wilson. This market was located right outside the door of our Airbnb, so we were fortunate enough to see the set up and take down of it. The … Continue reading Day 10 – Notre temps en France est fini
Hi everyone! Coming to you live (ok so maybe we're a little late) from the 9th day of our project!! Today we saw two "kind-of" markets. The first was the Marché Aguessau by the Church of the Madeleine, and the second was the artists' square at the Place du Tertre in Montmartre. We did not … Continue reading Day 9- Always a surprise!

We apparently felt very ambitious a month ago when we booked train tickets for 6:57 a.m. Despite the early morning, we said goodbye to Meg's host parents and took off for Strasbourg! Five hours later our train … Continue reading Day 5 – American Drama Queens
The first alarm went off at 7:15 a.m. today, and then about another four alarms rang before we finally got out of bed. Tired might be an understatement for how we felt this morning, but the rest of the day certainly made up for it! Today the goal was to visit two markets: L'Isle sur … Continue reading Day 4 – L’Isle sur La Sorgue (say that 5 times fast)
