Summertime means…

Boats on the lake

Big salads

Bright lights

Pretty flowers

Clear water

Fireworks on the 14th


Cigales in the south

    Hello! I am so envious!! You live in such a beautiful part of the country. I really want to visit Annecy. Tried stopping there last year when we went to Grenoble but it just didn’t happen. I guess I’ll have to make do with Amiens. ahem. I’m still in the UK, working in a language school but will be back to my French homeland on Wednesday. We’re heading to Biarritz on Saturday. Sun at last (hopefully).

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.
