A walk around Lille

Today we went to Lille. We caught the train at Bailleul station; BR take note – parking was free for the day, the train was on time at Bailleul and at Lille, although not exactly cheap, comfortable and clean. A double decker, it was a good vantage point on the upper deck for seeing the...

A quick dash through France

We only stopped momentarily in Lille, but I'm still counting it as France! The French countryside up from the channel seemed pretty bland and flat. Lots of well-orchestrated greenery, and no hedges. Not really my cup of tea. Lille itself, we couldn't see very well from the train, but it...

a bit of home

i'll be honest. it was nice to have my family here. it is so simple, or at least we believe it to be, to pretend to be completely independent in france. weak phone lines and bank accounts are the only things that connect us to home. we come here with a new sense of freedom, of yearning....

ive got dreams to remember

i had my first dream of home last night. it was summer and i was at the lake. the blue sky seamlessly blended with the smooth water while the sun shimmered down in waves of blistering heat. i could feel the wind and the waves and the warmth. i woke up alone in my cold room an ocean away and in...

birthday girl

the novelty of europe has worn off and the homesickness is starting to settle in. it drifts into the creases of your thoughts, fine like dust and easily shooed away. my birthday has come and gone. in the states there would have been streamers and flowers and iced cakes. here i clung to...

better days

ive spent two weeks here and i believe its safe to say although terribly cliché, that the worst is over. the first days are over and its difficult to recreate those emotions felt over again. needless to say life in Lille moved on and we had no choice but to follow. the last two weeks were...

i found the internet yessss.

well, it's my first blog entry. i can't really even begin to explain the last 3 weeks here, it's been fun so far but definitely a huuuuge adjustment. i like europe, but miss peanut butter and all the comforts of home (ok, they do have peanut butter here but it's like 4 euro...not worth...

throwing in the towel

they always say its going to be one of the best semesters of your life. they warn you about culture shock and its affects. and they tell you to hide your money in three different places so you don't get robbed. but they can never truly tell you how it feels to be completely disconnected from...
