Today, we took a day trip to Geneva, Switzerland and it was wonderful! The weather has finally started to cool off and in Geneva, dubbed the city of parks, the air was crisp and the leaves were changing! On top of the fact that I was going to go see my friend Janine who I hadn't seen in two years! We had such a great day!
We didn't have any tourist-y expectations for what to see in the city, so we sort of aimlessly walked around and saw what we saw. It was a very relaxed day and we ended up seeing a lot of cool things. Janine hadn't really been to Geneva, but it was nice to have a Swiss tour guide to show us all the best shops.
Can't wait to go back to Switzerland! Of course, I filmed to whole trip, so don't forget to look out for my next video!
I just wanted to make a little post about how I am feeling right at this moment. As this blog is sort of like my little time capsule which is saving all of my thoughts and adventures (and misadventures) in France, I thought it would be best to capture my feelings right now. Today has been a very good day. My new japanese housemate, Kaori, has arrived and we seem to have lots of little things in common. She doesn't speak English, so we are forced to speak French together. We had a great little conversation today and sort of got to know each other! I also talked with my landlady, Jocelyne, quite a bit today and I really feel like my French is improving. I very rarely have trouble understanding, and my accent seems to be improving! I know I've said this about three times already, but I really feel like I'm settling into France. Right now I'm watching a hilarious French movie, Prête-Moi Ta Main, and I'm preparing myself for my first real day of school tomorrow. I've almost gotten my room set up exactly how I want it, I've got a handle on French grocery shopping, and I know my way around Chambery very well. I've really grown to like Chambery and my mood about France has really changed the longer I've been here. I'm very excited for what is to come! Sorry there were no pictures this time, but I'll be posting a video about my stay in the south of France very soon!
So, I've just gotten back from the south of France (which I'll post about a bit later) and I'm super exhausted and a bit sick, but I finally finished editing all of the footage from Paris! I just thought I'd update everyone a bit and include the new video.
I got back last night around 9pm and I came in to find that my new housemate had arrived! She's super nice, but a bit hesitant to speak French (as I'm sure I was on my first day in France).
I (FINALLY) start real classes on Monday. I will take another placement test, and I will be put into a group which I will remain in for the rest of the semester. Hopefully, I'm feeling better for Monday, cause right now, I feel a bit like poo.
But, without further ado, here is another video from our stay in Paris!
