Back Home

Just arrived back home - and if hell were to freeze over - this would be it! Okay, not really, but just over a day ago I was sitting enjoying the warm evening breeze under an incredibly long sunset over an outdoor dinner in countryside France. The chill of the air blown in at the airport doors as Brenton showed us the way home was an abrupt end to an awesome holiday (thanks though Brenton). It seems I can understand more conversational French than I did a week ago - but now that will be next to useless here - I will practice reading however, between the pictures of the latest Tetu magazines we picked up at the airport in Paris... ah oui!!

Time to hit the sack and prevent a bad dose of jetlag - gotta get to work tomorrow - and have probably slept 4 hours in the past 24... all sitting upright...

Hey guys...welcome home from your travels...hope the cold is not too much of a shock.

So Trev, it seems that you may have stumbled upon the perfect way to perfect your conversational French...and it all comes down to incentive...Put yourself in a room with a devilishly handsome young monolingual French man (Sylvain is unfortunately excluded as he is bilingual) and force yourself to make small talk ('talky-talky' only no 'touchy-touchy' allowed!). If no success repeat as often as possible.

Love
Geoff

Thanks boys for the warm welcome home. Neil, everyone at home has been a little sick, but improving - apart from Norten who is perennially youthful. And Geoff, yes I think you have a very good point there - a room with a very cute and obliging frenchman who speaks no English would be a very encouraging immersion experience. Any Frenchmen who are translating this electronically - or people who know suitable applicant please direct them my way!!
