Off to Milan, and then Southern France

Michelle and I leave tomorrow morning at 10:45am for Milan, and then we’re heading back to France via Nice, and then over to Aix-en-Provence and Montpellier (and all the cool villages in between). We just spent the past two days in Chambéry and Annecy wandering around the old towns and the lake. Today I found out we did get the apartment in Chambéry that we wanted, so it’s been a pretty good birthday overall, despite the getting older part.

So once again David has to move without me since I seem to have a knack for planning trips at the same time. Though my trips are always planned really far in advance, so it’s not like I’m trying to get out of helping with the move…  We do the walk-through and sign the lease tomorrow morning, and he’s moving the furniture this weekend. When I come back, I’ll be going straight to Chambery, which is convenient since I return around 10 PM and our new apartment is rather close to the train station.

I most likely won’t be able to get online while I’m gone, and depending on how long our new internet provider wants to take getting us connected, it could be a while before we’ll have internet at the new place. I have a feeling my e-mail’s going to be about three months behind instead of my usual two.

A plus tard !

    Congrats on getting the apartment! And welcome to the neighborhood! You are literally a 7 minute bus ride from my house. I look forward to meeting you this summer and chatting about how we ended up in France and Chambery. It will be nice to have an American in town, albeit a ‘Frenchized’ one. Have a great trip! Cynthia

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.
