Greetings Family, Friends, and anybody else stumbling across this blog,
The Cherry Spoon blog started as a way for me to record and share my experiences from my 2011 semester abroad in Montpellier, France. You can follow that experience from the beginning here. The wanderlust in me wanted to keep the name vague in case I used the blog for subsequent travels. Instead of basing it on my destinations, I decided to base it on my origins. The Spoon Bridge and is one of Minneapolis’ most iconic landmarks. The gardens surrounding the sculpture reminded the artists of Versailles so they added the cherry to reference the decadent desserts of French kings. Since my first destination was France, I thought one of my favorite symbols of Minneapolis could lend a name to my blog. Now, I hope you enjoy reading my adventures over the cherry spoon and into the world.
