Les vacances

I am currently in the département of Vaucluse in the région of Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur (PACA). I am in the south of France for a week-long vacation. :)

David & I are staying at his uncle’s house in a small commune of 5,000 people. It’s so quiet and peaceful here. Plus there’s a pool!

This place is heaven. The weather is gorgeous. And there are so many interesting places to go in Vaucluse: Orange, Carpentras, Avignon, Roussillon, L’Isle-sur-la-Sorgue, etc. As soon as I saw the flat landscape and beautiful architecture of Provence, I knew I was going to love it.

David says we will live here someday. The cost of living is definitely cheaper than in Haute-Savoie, and he knows how much I miss the countryside. I wasn’t made for mountains or apartment living. Annecy is beautiful too, but it’s just not the same.

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.
