Did you miss me? I know I missed you 🙂 We’ve been in Lebanon for almost one week now, and we’ve already put on our Lebanese masks back, or should I say, we already removed our French masks. We’re back to being lousy drivers again, back to breaking rules, back to not caring about the … Continue reading

Well that’s it, and as our French fellows say, “Voili voilou”; our bags are packed, we’re ready to go. All we still need to do is get a good night sleep to be able to wake up tomorrow and leave.  We’re ready for our friends now that we haven’t seen for 4 months. We’re ready … Continue reading

Another diner out and another semi-fight with a waiter… Far you are the nice waiter that introduces himself before he says hello. Far you are the waiter that comes every 2 seconds to make sure that everything is ok and everybody around the table is still happy. Far you are the waiter that accepts the … Continue reading

We have finished our Christmas shopping today; we’re ready to fly home now 🙂 Actually we haven’t quite finished yet, we were so busy getting everybody else’s presents that we didn’t get time to think of ourselves.

But the thing is that we’re not sure we’ll be able to catch our plane 😦 The train company in France decided to change 85% of the trains’ schedules staring Sunday!! … Continue reading

Since we had seen most of the fair on Saturday, we decided to leave Strasbourg on Sunday morning and pass by Luxembourg on our way back home. Since we’ll be driving by it anyway, we said to ourselves why not grab the opportunity and visit a new region. So we left the beautiful city of … Continue reading

When you’re walking in the streets of Strasbourg during the Christmas period, French won’t be the main language spoken in the streets, hot wine will be the main smell in the air, children won’t be the only ones enjoying the festivities, and rain and cold won’t prevent the tourists from doing their shopping. Strasbourg part … Continue reading

“Strasbourg, capitale de Noel”…Strasbourg, capital of Christmas. That was this year’s Christmas fair’s logo in Strasbourg (I don’t know if previous years also), and they are right about it: If you want to enter the mood of the holiday, this is the place to be! Because there are a lot of pictures (I haven’t had … Continue reading

When we first knew we were coming to France, we decided to plan weekends all over France and Europe. Since the boundary between countries is now obsolete, we thought should take this advantage we have and try to visit as many areas as possible. So far this hasn’t happened yet; we had 1 day in … Continue reading
