Emmygration

Reviewed – February 3, 2010

Emmygration details the life of Emma who (to use her own words), came to the North East of France in September 2005 to teach English for 7 months, and well, never left. It is where she vents her thoughts about living as an anglophone in France; she thinks of it as therapy.

Therapy for her, maybe, but also very interesting for us. Emma takes us through her daily adventures, From the Dark Side all the way through to The Comedy Sketch Show that is My Life.

Along the way we discover Emma’s thoughts on My Good Manners are Wasted in France and La Poste, pain in the poste-iria, together with a little rant about My Frenchie Works for Free!



Exasperated Expatriate (and mommy, too!) – I’m a young, new, unexpected mother living in France. (From Colorado) My son, Nyko, is three. I am bitter-sweetly married to Thomas, a mechanical engineer for an American tractor company. We own a small but charming house in a village outside of Beauvais. I’m also a Doula in training, and doing online school in Social Sciences. I’m pregnant and about to burst with baby #2. I loved France until I realized that I might be living here forever… this blog is my on-going quest to come to terms with this…
