Happy V-Day, everyone! Or as they say here, bonne fete de St. Valentin! I was surprised that they celebrate Valentine’s Day here, because I always thought of it as a more American holiday, but they definitely do. There have been plenty of dinner specials posted, giveaways and events advertised, and valentine cards and gifts in the stores.
Fittingly enough, I welcome another visitor to Nice today: my boyfriend! Yes, he’s getting in on Valentine’s Day. Yes, it’s oh-so-romantic. No, we did not plan it that way! It just happened… a happy accident, haha. I’m a bit more on top of my game today than the day before my parents came; I actually have some blog posts written and queued up to post over the next few weeks! I decided to take this opportunity to share a series of posts intended to help those who are going to be assistants in France next year.
I have five posts written so far: cell phones, power adapters/converters, how to pack, teaching private English lessons, and finding an apartment/roommate. I also plan on writing one about getting a bank account and bus pass but I’m not sure when that will happen. I hope these posts will be helpful to future assistant; however, it also means that they will most likely be pretty boring to the majority of my regular readers (my friends and family back home)! So if you disappear for a few weeks, I won’t be offended. Regularly scheduled posting will resume the second week of March!
I’m going to close with a photo that I snapped yesterday when a friend I were walking along the water by the port. It seems especially fitting for today, Valentine’s Day! Now go show some love.
