Elise Morin moved to the Seattle area from France when she was 16. Her parents opened a bakery in Seattle's Belltown neighborhood.

Bastille Day, July 14, marked a turning point in the French Revolution in 1789. These days, it’s marked as a day of national celebration.

We’re using it as a good reason to talk to our friend Elise Morin, who was born and raised in France and moved to the United States just a few years ago, at age 16, when her family came to open La Parisienne bakery in Seattle’s Belltown neighborhood.

This week on Going Places, she speaks with Earthbound Expeditions co-founder Danna Brumley.
