March has been a month of very unsettled weather here in Clermont-Ferrand (and indeed most of the country) as we headed into Spring. After my weekend in the Alps with Dom that I wrote about last post I haven’t had any weekends away. I’ve been waiting for a fine weekend! We have had some incredible weather just not at the weekends!
While I have been unable together away I’ve been enjoying my time in CF hanging out with friends and planning my next adventures. Highlights have included going out for St Patrick’s Day dressed as an Irish flag (somewhat strangely I have a green skirt and an orange cardigan here with me in France), and watching a few matches from the 6 nations as well as general hanging out with friends.
I haven’t completely failed to get away however as in the last week I have been to Paris for the Nicki Minaj concert with Laura and Emma some fellow Kiwis and I’ve been on a day trip to Le Puy en Velay (and I must say the weather was incredible). In Le Puy I climbed a few basilic formations and checked out the cute city.
You might wonder how I’ve managed to fit those in within the school week. Well classes here are almost done for me, I have three weeks left of teaching but plenty of my classes sitting exams so I actually only have about 10 classes left!
I have a couple of blogs coming up about teaching and French schools and another one about cultural differences I’ve noticed. Look out for those coming soon!
Tomorrow I am heading away for four days as I only have to teach on Thursday this week! More about that trip in my next post.
Until next time,
