ahahahaha omg i sympathize. food is amazing i cant wait until next year (i will try to travel through some countries if everything goes well) so i can try french food, YUM!
Nice!!! Good luck--I hope you can make it to France! :D It's totally worth the trip just to eat everything.
Ha! If you would have told me you were going to Paris, I would have also said you were going to fall in love, but not with a person in particular, but with France itself. Every time I travel, I fall in love. I imagine an entire life there. It's the greatest feeling...
Thanks, Jade! Haha, I do the same thing. It doesn't really matter where--I start thinking that I could be happy with a day job in Hawaii or as a reclusive writer on the Oregon coast or a starving artist in Brooklyn...
This is hilarious! I love your travel comic! I do travel comics too, check it out! thewanderingorange.com :D
Thanks for the link--I'm really enjoying going through your archive! :D
Haha I am a french who spent the last year in the US, I remember how excited I was about the whole thing and how people reacted the exact same way... Well at the end I felt in love with an american -who also looove french food- BUT STILL. Enjoy France, living abroad is the best :)La bise! (as we say around here:))
LOL, really?? I wouldn't think that going to the US would inspire that reaction. Happy to hear you enjoyed living abroad, and experienced love in the US. :P Bises!
Haha! :DAs Frenchy I don't really realize that. I maybe need to leave a year or two to realize how much I love France. :)
Haha, I think you would miss it if you left! French bread, especially, is phenomenal -- it's really impossible to find anything of the same quality in the US.I know that leaving Portland has made me appreciate things I didn't know were special about it (cheap and amazing beer, authentic Mexican food, green space, thrift shops, rerun theaters).
HA!! This is the funniest thing I have ever seen! Kudos!
Thanks so much! (^_^)
ahaha excellent :) j'ai beaucoup ri.I hope you to have a very nice year in France (and not only for the food ! ^^)
Thank youuuu! :DD
I just discovered your blog, but I already like it and as a french person it always makes me smile to see how foreigners see our country ;)I plan to travel to northern Europe and USA one day too !As a US series addict, I must ask: does Portland have as much forests as in the tv show "Grimm" ? ^^ (yes I have lame references for your part of the world, the other one would be the "Oregon Scientific" launch motto from my sister's old kid laptop haha)
Thank you! I hope I can entertain you and also be fair with my observations about France. :PAhh, Grimm! Yes, it's really filmed in Portland, and from what I've seen it's an accurate representation. That first episode, where the girl is mauled in the woods? That forest is right next to downtown--I used to live on the edge of it and go hiking/running there almost every day! Haha, so that episode really freaked me out!!
Haha, I particularly like the picture with the camembert !!!
Thank you! ^_^
Me too. It made me laugh out loud...at work...now I have to explain myself...and you.
Hahaha, sorry! But please feel free to send your coworkers links as explanation :P
oh yes. they put something addictive in the baguettes... seriously. its the air or the water or a special flour because they NEVER taste the same here
