Francy Pants


Bonjour my little French Hens..........................

Guess what ? I went to Paris ! I got back a couple of weeks ago. I was only there for a week. Not only that, but I was sick the entire trip, starting from the moment I got off the plane until a week AFTER I got back. The weather was rainy about 95% of the time. Those two factors plus jetlag made getting out of bed and doing things really difficult. However, I managed to still have a nice week because I met a ton of people. I met distant family, friends through my FBFF (French Best Friend Forever) and I couchsurfed. I had high hopes of seeing all the things every tourist wants to see, but I simply couldn't because I was just too sick, tired and jetlagged to trek through rainy weather to stand in line to see art or a statue. But I did stay with French natives in their homes, and met a lot of French people. If you are a tourist, it is difficult to meet locals, so I feel that I was lucky to have met the people that I did.

It has been so long since I have blogged, and I noticed that most of the blogging community on here that used to be so tight is now virtually gone. It really makes me sad. It's so easy to get sucked into social media like Facebook, especially when for me, that is how I stay in contact with my family. But at the same time, blogging makes me feel better, like I have recorded a piece of my life to read later.

Anywhooters, I better go to bed. Besitos !

HAR!!!

I'm so sorry you felt badly on your trip... that teaching trip of mine to Germany and Holland was the same for me... sick as a dog the entire time, and for a bit after I returned.

What a bummer that was...

BTW... your Chucks are the wrong color... :op

Sorry to hear you felt ill, I am glad tho that you manage to visit some good places and got to stay with friends and family.

The blogging community is growing lonelier and lonelier, that's for sure. I agree with you that you are lucky to have stayed with native French people instead of simply doing the tourist thing and never really meeting people. To me, the people of a country are the most fascinating part, much more than the tourist sites most people visit.

I wasn't impressed with Paris. However, I'm sorry you were sick.
