So I was going to write up a long post about finishing my first week in freaking FRANCE, featuring about 10-70 photos of the same river and a lot of ranting about the fact that nothing- and I mean nothing- is open between 11 and 3, after 9, and on Sundays. If you want to find lunch, you better either pack it or resign yourself to the fact that you will have to eat kebabs. I’ve eaten so many kebabs in the past 7 days that I’m contemplating vegetarianism. Don’t even get me started on what this has done for my drunk food habits. I never thought that I’d say this, but I miss the White Spot and those two creepy Mexicans that keep smiling at you while you eat and always bring you free fries.

BUT I’m not going to do that because just thinking about writing everything down stresses me out to no end. That being said, if I can figure out how to use technology, there MIGHT be a new travel feature coming to WhatKumquat soon. No promises though as I still can’t figure out how to use Twitter, let alone a whole new editing software.


One thing I’ve noticed about the French: everyone is so goddamn trendy that, were they at UVA, they would be consistently given weird looks and probably asked if they were lost and looking for parents’ formal or something. I could probably wear a full-fur cape here and no one would bat an eyelid.

My wardrobe is pretty much neutral anyway (besides, obviously, these pants) so I didn’t have to spend heaps to not look completely American. I’m also thankful that pants like these are the norm over here, like in Italy or especially Greece, so I don’t have to give up my favourite trend IE consistently wearing items that double as pajamas.

I paired these pants from Thailand (no, I’m not that cultured, these were a gift) with the same black slip-ons from the last post and a soft heather grey crop top that’s just long enough to be acceptable for the daytime.
