After having moaned about how much free time I had in my last blog post, the tables have now turned and I have had a fun-filled and very hectic last few weeks in the run-up to Christmas. I am currently sitting at Geneva airport with several hours to kill having spent a ridiculous amount on a coffee in Starbucks just so that I can sit … Continue reading Home time 🙂
First of all, I’m sorry for neglecting this blog for so long. So much has happened since I last wrote, from my first day skiing to first french haircut, falling off my bike and finally receiving my CAF money (miracle)! I will try my best to summarise in this post, all my tales from the past month. Since realising how fast time is flying past I … Continue reading A lot to catch up on
As promised, I have plenty of stories to tell from the past weeks adventures in and around Grenoble and also from dramas at home!

With the handing in of my CAF forms this week I now feel … Continue reading My ski jacket has its first outing…
I don’t have much to report from my third week here but at least I can say that I have managed to go a whole week without having to get any forms signed! This past week seems to have consisted mainly of lazy days and busy nights with a few lectures in between too. After a night out at Grenobles’ version of a pub (kitted … Continue reading Day & Night / Jour et Nuit
Part of me feels like I have been here much longer than two weeks and feels very settled in the my new home and life as a French student. However, I can’t help thinking that after all our efforts over the past weeks with admin issues, that there should be a lot less paperwork now! We spent a very chilled Saturday exploring the town and … Continue reading 2 weeks gone by already!
