Cedars Photo Diary

Cedars by Dear Laura Cedars by Dear Laura Cedars by Dear Laura Cedars by Dear Laura Cedars by Dear Laura
Before heading to Portugal in August, I spent two and a half weeks back home in Lebanon. I was looking at some pictures I took during my stay and couldn’t help but share these photos from a road trip with some friends in northern Lebanon. They also remind me of summer and the warm weather (yes, the temperature suddenly dropped in Paris; hello jumpers, scarves and endless amount of tea).

The Cedars of God is one of the last vestiges of the extensive forests of the Cedars of Lebanon. I've been going there with my friends for two years now and it's slowly becoming one of our summer traditions.

We started the day with a hike to the top of the mountain and a quick dip in the lake. However we never really finished the walk. We were too slow and people were waiting for us back at the house for lunch, so someone had to come pick us up - have you ever tried going on a hike with 8 girls? After lunch, we spent the afternoon outside watching the sunset. Definitely one of the most beautiful sunsets I've ever seen. Later on, we had a karaoke party, dined, played beer pong, and ended our night with a movie. And of course, we were never actually able to finish the movie as everyone ended up falling asleep on the couch. Until next year, Lebanon!

Life Lately

Cambronne by Dear Laura
The weather has been lovely lately. Unfortunately, I've been stuck at home working on both my theses. I still post pictures of Paris on my instagram account from time to time. Also, you may have noticed that I made some changes to the blog design. It's not completely finished as there are still a couple of details I want to fix, but it's a start.

Champ de Mars, by Dear Laura Champ de Mars, by Dear Laura Champ de Mars, by Dear Laura Champ de Mars, by Dear Laura
So there's that, summer is over and college started today. After two months of traveling I'm happy to be back home, and I'm very much looking forward for this college year as it is my last year. Yep, I graduate in May! I'm not really sure how I feel about that. I mean, it's exciting and all, but time is going by so quickly... It feels like just yesterday I graduated from high school, and now I'm searching for different masters programs, etc... Oh boy. Anyway, enough rambling. The weather has been nice lately (hooray!) so I went for a walk at the Champ de Mars a couple of days ago - and surprisingly, I didn't mind the tourists. Happy Friday!
