A little bit about myself: I’m Rebecca, a twenty-something-year-old from Los Angeles, now living and working in France. I was a TAPIF assistant in Normandy during the 2015-2016 year and will return for the 2016-2017 year.

This blog will be my attempt to document my life abroad in Europe, with both my past and present experiences rolled into one. I also hope to offer some advice for those aspiring to be assistant(e)s de langue, after being inspired by other amazing expat blogs in the same vein (I’ll link a few below).

In essence, I aim for my blog to combine a variety of things that I love: travel, writing (I wasn’t an English major in college for nothing!), and a bit of poetry. I look forward to sharing my adventures with you, and until then, à bientôt!
