Joris Brichet, Champion de France de Skate

Last night David & I had dinner with a friend that we hadn’t seen in a few months. Joris had been traveling to Prague, Morocco and England for skateboarding competitions because he’s been the national champion of vert skating in France for four years. He took 2nd place recently at the European championships. If you actually watch commercials, you may have seen him in this publicité de Quick in April:

It must be awesome to be paid to do what you love. I wish someone would pay me to travel around Europe and learn languages!

P.S. He’s also a biology teacher.

Why is Jennie no longer in France?

I created this blog in September 2006 when I moved to France from Michigan to teach English. Many of the earlier posts are about my personal life in France, dealing with culture shock, traveling in Europe and becoming fluent in French. In July 2011, I relocated to Australia to start my PhD in Applied Linguistics. Although I am no longer living in France, my research is on foreign language pedagogy and I teach French at a university so these themes appear most often on the blog. I also continue to post about traveling and being an American abroad.
