Hey guys !

After my series of article about my trip to Roma (here is part 1, part 2 and part 3) as well as to the Vatican, I’m taking you to…California ! If you’ve been following me for a little while, you might know that I’m currently living in Monterey for my studies, therefore every weekend is an opportunity to discover new places.

My first road trip was to San Francisco, an amazing city. Let me share with you my discoveries and my pictures. Enjoy !

Roman holidays (part 1)

After years of wanting to go to Italy, I finally went ! The plane tickets were kind of booked on the spur of the moment with my boyfriend as we finished our exams around the 25th of May but he started his internship on the 1st of June. This was a very small window, but we took the opportunity to travel thanks to Ryan Air and their really reasonable prices.

Several exams and one Airbnb reservation later, we were on the plane to enjoy our first Roman holidays. To my great pleasure, this meant that would be able to speak Italian, take cool pictures, and eat pizza every day (spoiler alert : I totally did!). After having shared my day at the Vatican, here are my pictures from the beautiful city of Rome.

Book review #5 :The Summons by John Grisham (2002)

After having tried for the first time to read a John Grisham a few weeks ago, without really knowing his work, I decided to try it again despite my first reading being a disappointment. This time, I finished my book a little bit more satisfied. I’d give it a 6/10.

Here’s the story :

The main character, Ray Atlee, is a law professor with a good salary at the University of Virginia. He has a brother, Forrest, and a father, known to many as Judge Reuben V. Atlee. Ray is sent to his father’s house in Clanton, Mississippi, to discuss issues regarding the old man’s will and estate. When he finds his father dead in the study, Ray discovers a sum of over three million dollars in the house, money which is not part of Judge Atlee’s will. Ray immediately thinks the money is “dirty” because his father could not possibly have made so much money in his career.

Assuming that he is the only one who knows about the money, Ray decides to take it without making it officially part of the estate, and does not tell anyone about it. But later reality proves otherwise. Ray is being followed; someone else knows about the money. After his own investigations into the roots of the money and the identity of his shadow—including trips to casinos and shady meetings with prominent southern lawyers—he eventually discovers the true story behind the money.
