Impressions from France

Hello my friends. I'm back from our holiday and want to share some impressions of the places we visited. A week is far too short to explore even a small part of France so we focused mainly on the area between Lake Geneva and Lake Annecy (in the north west). Our camper-van allowed us to travel freely and follow our noses a little. I love traveling and enjoy seeing as much as I can. I do feel a bit exhausted after this week but I have come home with a million impressions and full of new ideas. Different countries open your eyes to new things don't they?

I have a love hate relationship with the french language, even though I learnt it in school for four years I feel completely stumped when I try to speak - I am really self conscious and worry about sounding stupid so I end up speaking in english and feeling ignorant in doing so. Maybe a few more trips to France will fix my dilemma.

In case I'm not back here in the next few days - come find me in the laundry. Our pile of washing is epic and at the rate in which clothing is drying on our line - it'll take me days to get through it. The joys of coming home :-)

Wunderschöne Bilder, gefallen mir sehr! Der kleine Trip durch "dein" Frankreich hat mich heute richtig aufgeheitert. Danke für eine Dosis Sonnenschein!
Wir wollten evtl. diesen Sommer nach Südfrankreich fahren, fanden aber bislang kein schönes Ferienhaus. Vielleicht sollten wir noch mal über die Camper Variante nachdenken... Danke auch für deine nette Nachricht heute! Geht bestimmt bald wieder besser ;-)
Liebe Grüße Tesca

Nina, Love love these pictures. You also seem had a very good countryside holiday. I love going to the lake as in Malaysia we seldom have lake. About the language, haha.. dont be so stress up dear. I learned German for 3 years but then when I travel to Swiss I stumble back that my German is so bad till I don't dare to say a word haha.

Good luck with the laundry too :)
