So let’s throw it back to 2009 when I shared some observations and what my first day of teaching in France was like…
In the coming weeks, I plan on giving you all the details of our canal boating experience along with a few videos, but today’s post is a little intro to canal cruising in France.
I’m currently in the east of France with Tom, Dagny and my in-laws, so please enjoy Catherine of Taste of France’s post on accents below in my absence and show her some love in the comments
