This is my last day living in France and I have to say, rain and all, I had a great time. I learnt french, met a lot of different people, and saw some pretty amazing sights. My parting gift along with a can of duck gizzard: a rain storm with 40km/h winds. Woohoo! Just hoping tomorrow isn't the same for the plane ride...

Concarneau, Bretagne

This last weekend I went on my last sightseeing trip in France. We went to the city of Concarneau right by the ocean and ate a delicious meal of seafood! The weather wasn't terrible but as usual it rained.

Pacques- Auvergne

Last week I was in Auvergne visiting Marie's grandparents. I climbed a volcano, went to a paper museum, rode in a horse racing cart, and went to a rugby match.

House in Paimpol

Here's a picture of the neighbour's house we stayed at in Paimpol. It is over 100 years old!

Paimpol and L'Ile de Brehat

After getting home from Paris I went with my french family and their neighbours to their home in Paimpol. We then took a boat to the Island of Brehat. I met some ladies on the boat who were dressed in the traditional clothing of the region of Britanny and who were very excited to meet a Canadian! :)


This week I went to Paris with my class at school. We went to a play, le Centre Pompidou, La Grande Mosquée de Paris, L'Institut du Monde Arabe, le Jardin des Plantes, and Le Grande Galerie de l'Evolution.  We saw some pretty neat things, met some sweet people and for once the weather was nice and sunny!
