France, Baby!

Yes, that’s right! We’re going to France in July. That’s me in the green sweater and my co-teacher, Stacey, in the black and white print. One day at work we were talking about how when we became teachers we always thought we would travel in the summers. And why weren’t we travelling in the summers anyway? Then Amy, the drama teacher in the red, piped up and said she REALLY wanted to go to France this summer, and then Tristan in the black dress said she wanted to go to. And so we are.

Women-only trip Paris through Provance for two weeks in July. Then the other teachers are flying out, and the Wise and Bearded One is flying in and we’re going to try to catch a couple of days of the Tour de France and maybe spend a couple of days in the Motherland (Switzerland or Germany depending which Mother you’re talking about).

The photo above is from a “planning meeting” last weekend at Gilt, a posh little restaurant in downtown Portland. Viva la France!

  2. I hope you have a wonderful time. And yes, I’m jealous too! In my dreamworld I would be able to travel all over Europe. And Hawaii. And Alaska. All along the Pacific Coast. Oh well, lots of places that I haven’t been to (and probably never will).
