Our container finally made it to Point B!
Ha, ha, ha…. Sometimes you just have to laugh! How did I think it would be any different for us? I guess it’s just one of those things that you hear about, but never believe it can happen to you. Everyone I know who has moved here, and especially those who have written or blogged about their experience, has wished us good luck with the “French red tape”. It’s basically a seemingly endless Catch 22. I’m choosing to remain positive, and believe that by the end of August it will all be worked out.
For the moment we are living at my sister and brother-in-law’s house while they’re away on vacation, so it’s really nice to have some extra time to finish up paperwork and get our apartment cleaned up and fixed up the way we want it. As you can see in the picture below, it’s not such a bad place to be spending the month of August. The only thing is that it is out in the countryside, and it’s not really possible to get a good Internet connection. I’m so looking forward to getting the Internet set up at the apartment so that we can easily go there to get some work done.
Here’s some exciting news! A young English woman who is living in Barcelona teaching English and studying French and travel journalism at the same time found my blog and Love Learning French Facebook page, and she’ll be in Béziers this weekend. She’s asked me to give her a few hours of immersion classes around and about town on Friday and Saturday. I’m really, really looking forward to doing that, so fun!
