  • Top 10 Instagram Memories

    by Zander Willoughby | May 04, 2017
    Life is stressful here in Strasbourg, France after the first round of the French elections. As I&rsquo;m sure you&rsquo;ve seen, Emmanuel Macron came in first place and Marine Le Pen came in second. They will go into a runoff election 7 May. Macron is expected to win by at least 40%, mais il faut jamais dire jamais. We&rsquo;re on edge, but less so than a week or so ago. Between the election and preparing for exams, for this week, I&rsquo;d like to share with you a few of my favourite Instagram pictures while studying abroad. If you want to see them all, check them out HERE. Here it goes! 1.
