Vieille Ville of Annecy

So not a lot has been happening lately, mostly because France basically shuts down for the month of August and I’m not working which means no income and no fun. The big excitement for me last week was going to the eye doctor and ordering new contacts. You wish you had my life, right?  But at least my eye doctor is located next to the castle in the old town, so I took some pictures during my walk to the optician. (My older pictures of Annecy can be found here.)

One of the castle’s towers. (A tour group was all over the place so this was the only picture I took.)

Canal de Thiou

Pretty colors

Lac d’Annecy

P.S. Why do doctors still talk a mile a minute even when they know you’re not French?

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.
