Ten days since my last (and first) round of Expat Escapades... that's not too bad at all! Let's get started, shall we.
There was loads happening in the expat blogosphere in the past week, these kids really get out and about. Here's a snippet of some of the posts that caught my eye...
Delana du Jour made me jealous with an empty and secluded spot on the beach that's she's been able to find. Delana lives in Aix-en-Provence which isn't that far from The LPV you know, so that means (I'm guessing anyway) that this mystery beach location isn't too far away either. I'm wondering if I can tempt her to give it up, or maybe Fifty could cuddle the secret out of her. We have ways of making you talk.
This post caught my eye mostly for the gorgeous factor... Jess from Love and London posted photos of her intimate wedding in New York to her new British husband. She's gorgeous, he's gorgeous, her dress is gorgeous. Click on over and O.D. on gorgeousness.
My buddy Ella Coquine had a very French-like experience in a grocery store in Paris. It's basically S.N.A.F.U. which here means, Situation Normal All Frenched Up, or my other favorite for these French situations we find ourselves in; WTF... as in, WHAT THE FRENCH?!?! (And then for those times when I get really peeved, I like to yell, FRENCH YOU or GO FRENCH YOURSELF!)
When I was a kid I absolutely adored The Sound of Music. I'd watch the movie every time it popped up on telly and listened to the soundtrack repeatedly (driving everyone around me loop-di-loop) so when I saw a post about The Sound of Music Tour in Austria over on The Adventures of Holly, I was about as jealous as jealous can be. She even went to the Salzburg Marionette Theatre! High on a hill was a lonely goatherd lay ee odl lay ee odl lay hee... JEALOUS.
The Young Adventuress (pretty much my favorite travel blogger) posted an Instagram catchup of her summer. Let me tell you something, this was no ordinary Instagram dump, this one has photos of England, Italy, Greece, Iceland, Switzerland... holy crackerjacks, that girl gets around (not like that... get your head out of the gutter).
Take a ride on The London Eye with Selena from Oh, The Places We Will Go and watch her overcome her fear of heights. Actually, Selena did more than overcome her fear... she kicked it's booty when she took the ride not once, but twice! Gold star for you Selena.
Three words... Cute. Italian. Boys. Pop on over to The Boot and see what Marissa has to say about them.
And last but not least... ME! I'm guest posting over at Brachel Boulevard while Rachel and her family get settled into their new home in Spain. Click here to see what I have to say about my life in France (as if you don't get enough of that already over here) and then be sure to visit again to see how Rachel settles into her new life as an expat.
