The picture above is the reason I haven’t been writing to you lately as much as before. I have discovered a new hobby while I was in France (other than blogging of course): crochet.

If you happen to be in Paris until the 10th of June, like to watch Tennis games but were not able to buy your Roland Garros tickets, or maybe you cannot afford to buy tickets, or even you do not have a TV at home (or in the hotel where you’re staying), do not panick! … Continue reading

Did I tell you we’re walking around the house everyday after work? It’s already the beach season, and this year, unlike last year, we’ll be enjoying it to the max once we’re back home. Because of this, there is no way I’ll be wearing my swim suit with this body sculptured lately with a few … Continue reading

I know I said before that I won’t be writing about bad things concerning France and the French anymore before I leave, but I cannot got without talking about this subject: the French humor.
