Destination Béziers!


I’ve arrived in France!  La Belle France!  I’ve been in Paris for a few days, but as we speak I’m getting ready to head over to the Gare de Lyon to take the TGV down to Béziers.  I’ll spend a few days there with my sister-in-law and her family (can’t wait to see them!!), then I’ll head over to Montpellier to start my summer job.  I’m not sure if it will be today or tomorrow, but I will soon get to visit our apartment and meet M. et Mme Pascal (the owners).  After seeing it for myself, I’ll write another post and tell you all about it.  I know it’s going to be just perfect for us, and I have no problem seeing beyond imperfections.  It will be nice to get down to the South where I hope the weather is better than here in Paris.  For the sake of it being the first day of summer and “La Fête de la Musique”, I hope it will warm up a bit and not rain.  I really hope I will get to visit the apartment today, it’s so exciting!!

  1. Good luck with settling in…always an exciting phase of any moves. And I am not certain the weather is any better in the South. They have had major flooding in the region but I think it is north of Montpellier so you might be OK. The weather has been pretty horrible all over France this spring and early summer…crossing fingers it gets better soon!

  2. Jennifer, It is glorious here in the Corbières and since you will be so close by, I have no doubt it will be simply amazing there! Welcome home!

  3. Weather here in the south is just gorgeous right now (finally!) and the Fête de la Musique is underway – we were dancing to a band in the street in our village last night. Fabulous!! Enjoy the next few days🙂

    1. So awesome! So far I’m enjoying every single minute of it. Though my family here thinks the weather stinks😉 They’re just spoiled, and they haven’t been up to Paris in a while! I was just there, and I can agree with you that down here it’s gorgeous, especially compared to Paris.

    1. I did! But I have no idea what the names of the bands were. Up by the cathedral we heard a Catalan band and watched the dancers, we heard a salsa band in front of the Mairie, we saw some belly-dancers, some country music line dancers, and a rock band with a big southern accent in front of the theater. It was awesome!!

      1. Welcome to France and Beziers, and what a great start to your stay! I caught the last song of the catalan band, and was very sorry not to have been there longer! Caught some of the blues in front of the Madeleine church, and some of the smaller bands! Was hoping to see some people jump over the fire in the cloisters of the cathedral, but by the time we got there everyone had left – still, got some good pictures…

      2. I’m not strictly in Beziers but in St Chinian, 30km west of Beziers. But it’s the nearest place for me to get some kind of “town life” – or Narbonne of course.

      3. After reading your comment I went back to your blog and then remembered that you were St Chinian. What a pretty place, and you’re never lacking for good wine, are you!

      4. That would have been fun, and I’m sure it will happen sooner or later. It’s funny that we were probably at the Catalan concert at the same time and now Caunes! Maybe I saw you, I just remember seeing some people speaking English, though you probably weren’t the only Anglophone there! lol
