Well, here we are, friends. After months of anticipation, our duffle bags are packed, our visas are stamped, and our French language podcasts are piling up like tourists waiting to see the Eiffel Tower. All that is to say, ready or not, we’re going to Paris! Allons y, I believe they say.
It’s a terrifying, amazing, unbelievable opportunity. As of 7:00 pm, when Colin and I hop onto the plane, we will be living in a new city, a new country, with a new language and exactly one friend (each other). It’s a good thing I sort of like him.
In any case, this is certainly the end of an era (six and a half years in Cambridge!), but it’s also the beginning of une grande aventure, which is sure to be filled with many croissants, lots of wine and cheese, and probably an overwhelming amount of incomprehensible (to me) French. Let’s see what happens.
