I am back in France after 9 days in Italy without internet. I stayed in a really beautiful but remote location. It was so strange to click on the wifi connections button and to see the empty list. I don't think I have ever seen such an empty space when clicking on that button.
I love visiting my father's town. I have even thought of living there, but the reality of life there makes it highly unlikely I ever will. I have this strange relationship with the place, there are so many great things about it but at the same time some really dark aspects about living there, but I am always pulled back eventually. It is always so difficult to leave; it doesn't matter whether I stay 3 months or 1 week.
As soon as I figure out how to put watermarks on my pictures I'll put one up of the town. I'm not really comfortable putting up pictures without watermarks so if anybody out there can help out this blogger newbie and tell me how you do it, I'd be really grateful.
When I went to La Poste this morning I let out the Italian si instead of the French oui. It's crazy what an affect speaking Italian had on me after only 9 days there. My Italian has suffered a lot since I moved to France and I hope to someday work on it again, but I always knew my Italian would go downhill since I speak French all the time. I have to admit, though, that I was both horrified, amused and pleased when I heard that si come out.
Speaking of being back in France...we're moving to Denmark tomorrow! I can't believe it, we are actually going tomorrow. It doesn't feel real yet, somehow it can't be true, I just got back to France. We can't be leaving?! Well, I guess tomorrow when I get there I'll believe it, haha.
I do want to keep talking about Bordeaux and France while I am there as my move to Denmark is only a temporary one. I am an immigrant in France and in Denmark I will truly be an expat. I will be moving back to Bordeaux after a few months, after all. I hope that during these few months in Denmark I will learn about the local culture and language and maybe even travel to Norway and Russia. A girl can only dream!
So I hope to see you here for more (for the few readers that I have, haha).
