Well we made it! It took a lot of planning, packing, unpacking, support raising, crying, laughter, and any other emotion you could possibly conjure up. And yet the craziest thing is that it's just the beginning of our adventure...and our emotions.
While I wish I could have blogged much sooner, life in France has proven to be, well, a life in another country. Not speaking the language and trying to do complicated things like opening a bank account, setting up wi-fi, getting a sim card for your phone, and so forth, proved to be much more difficult than we thought. It's not Paris where everyone speaks English (whether you want them to or not) and will switch to a perfect English accent after you fumble through a simple, "Je...voudrais..." (I would like)
So yeah, here we are figuring out life together in France, and it's kind of awesome. The mountain view is incredible, the people are tres gentil (very nice), and our school, teachers, and former students have provided an amazing community.
Below are some photos of our apartment, which by the way is huge! Especially for European standards. So of course, we had to take advantage and entertain a few friends for food and games.
