    That’s beautiful, I hope you enjoyed yourself. How long were you there? Did you speak any Portuguese?

    Cheers,
    Andrew

    Looks like a lovely place! This is one of the European countries I have never visited and it’s on my to-go list.

    Rossio train station – where to get the train to Sintra. It is gorgeous, isn’t it?

    Just Monday through Thursday. Definitely not long enough to see everything. I hope I can go back someday soon! I only know a few words of Portuguese. It’s easy enough to figure out if you know some Spanish but the pronunciation is very different. Sounds more like a Slavic language with all the sibilants.

    Yes, it was all very lovely and clean and pleasant. Definitely at the top of my list for European places to visit.

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.
