The Foreigner in France is Bre’s blog about her six month study trip to Clermont-Ferrand.
The blog starts in September 2010 with “The Foreigner in France” and Bre getting ready to leave Michigan for the Auvergne.
Then, in Planes, food and sleep, Bre arrives in France
Eleven hours sleep followed by a good walk – what better way to prepare for a new life of frog’s legs and andouilettes?
Monday arrives and it’s an Exposition and First Day of School.
All goes well (apart from getting lost and a little bit of trouble with her keys!)
And, before you know it, it’s the Weekend!
Starting with Friday night and meeting friends in a bar to watch the rugby (+ 1 brownie point!)
Followed by Saturday and another bar and then a club (+2 brownie points!)
And concluded on Sunday with a hangover! (+3 brownie points!)
All in all an excellent end to Bre’s first week in France!
Five excellent points, of which number five is probably worth reading a few times….
“Clothing – Most people don’t wear sweatpants or sweatshirts and “junky” t-shirts unless they are going or coming back from the gym or some sort of sport. Also short shorts are not acceptable. Most people wear nicer clothes which doesn’t mean fancy, just not old and ratty.”
Then it’s September and the post… “One Week” Barenaked ladies – part one was, to my eternal disappointment more about rugb and school rather than women with no clothes on!
And finally, in the most recent post, we find Bre in Lyon.
Now, I know a lot of rather interesting people who live in Lyon but it seems that Bre didn’t meet an of them and that, upon reflection, I feel is just as well – bearing in mind Bre’s impressionable young age!
Anyway, her parents and brother flew in to see her and even though their luggage was lost, the seemed pretty excited to meet up again.
This is a fun blog by a young woman who seems to be having a wonderful time in France.
She’s certainly taking every opportunity to explore whilst she’s in Europe.
I’m going to pop in every week or so to catch up on what Bre is up to.
And I’d suggest that you find a few moments to update yourself on the adventures of The Foreigner in France
I think you’ll enjoy it!
All the best
