Une Serviette and Other Words — 26 Comments

  1. How you mentioned you hadn’t spoken english since the tourists you ran into, from your hometown. Isn’t that weird how that happens? That always seems to happen to me. I went to Paris and sat next to some family and the kid was wearing a t-shirt that said my city and state. What?! I tried like heck to tell them but my french is limited to maybe a few sorry sentences. They looked at me like I was crazy. lol

    Loved this, I felt like I was right there with ya!

  2. I often struggle to get an english word from my brain to my tongue, never mind another language. I am sadly untraveled – not even so far as Quebec which is really only a ten hour drive away with family along the way that I could stop and visit. Someday maybe.

  3. “Un papier pour les mains…”

    hilarious! i totally know what you mean… i often find myself in the same predicament, dancing around the words i don’t know by using the most ridiculous descriptions and receiving bewildered confused looks.

    and i love the loire river valley! its so beautiful there.

  4. Lovely as always. You’re slowly changing the way I see France. I must admit, someday, I will probably go there, and probably like it, and I’m okay with that, now that I’m in my mid-30s.

    Sorry I’ve been gone so long. Life got in the way of my writing and visiting others. I’m trying to not let that happen again.
