A weekend break was definitely needed at this point of the year. We just felt overwelmed: internship research, different projects going on at Uni, exams coming fast and fast, student jobs and stuff. So a friend suggested a weekend in the French countryside. What a wonderful idea! It was as regenerating as a hot bath after a long and stressful day.
