Le retour

I’m back in France, once again. I feel really tired even though Egypt was only an hour later than France, and I still have this weird stomachache that is not going away. I definitely think I’m done with travelling for a while. Wasting time in airports and on planes is not how I want to spend my life, especially when it makes me so sick.

Egypt was a great experience though. The pyramids, the mosques, Coptic Cairo, modern Egypt… I saw it all. Though if I had to describe Cairo in one word, it would be chaos. I’ve uploaded my pictures to the Travel Photos section, and I’ll type my journal when I’m not so tired.

So now it’s back to regular life here in Haute-Savoie. The weather is being a pain (rain, then sun, then rain, then sun…) and we are still waiting to get into our new apartment. We’re staying at David’s parent’s apartment until Sunday morning. Luckily they have internet.

Unfortunately, we may not have internet in our apartment for a few weeks. I will have no idea what to do with myself.

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 January 2010, I started focusing more on teaching and learning languages in general. 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 the university so these themes appear most often on the blog. I also continue to post about traveling (though now my trips are usually in Australia) and being an American abroad.
