Alors… perhaps you’ve been thinking about traveling to France. Whether it’s for leisure or work, nevertheless you’re excited to be soon arriving in and living out your fantasy of la vie française. From the tempting smells of fresh baguettes to the easygoing, laissez faire lifestyle, you’re envisioning just how wonderful your time will be abroad, and of course, you’re counting the days until you’re off!
As of today (July 30th), I am celebrating my first anniversary of blogging on Rebecca Goes Rendezvous. While it might not be such a huge accomplishment for other, more-seasoned bloggers in this massive online-writing platform, I am still glad to be here to continue what I love about traveling, poetry, and random life musings from my twenty-something mind.
As you can tell from the title, today’s post will be somewhat different since it’s neither about traveling nor about my teaching experience in France. The idea came to me a couple of weeks ago while I was back at home (as in Los Angeles): I live close to the middle and high schools that I attended back in the day and, considering that the school year is (was) coming to an end for students, I couldn’t help but reflect about my own experiences back when I was in school. Although they might not seem that long ago for some people, I admit that they are starting to become distant, fading memories for me…
As of January 30th, 2017, I have over 200 followers who follow Rebecca Goes Rendezvous. Considering that it has only been two-and-a-half months ago since I received 100 follows, it’s quite impressive that the total count has since then doubled.
Once again, this is a short post to let you know that I’m grateful for your readership on this blog, and I’m glad to have interacted with some of you, whether regularly or for the first time, as I share my experiences living and traveling in Europe and read about your fantastic adventures abroad. Here’s to the next big milestone, whether on this blog or somewhere in the world!
Welcome to 2017!
This is just another quick post to wish you a wonderful new year and a wonderful time with family and/or friends. Again, I’m still currently traveling for the holidays, but I’ll be back really, really soon, since my time for les vacances de Noël is wrapping up in the next day or two.
In the meantime, enjoy my posts on last year’s travels, i.e. the one during my first year as an assistante in 2015, on the UK and Ireland, and I promise tons of more adventures from this current trip I’m taking in the days and weeks to come in January. Stay tuned for the last installment of last year’s vacances going up tomorrow, and until then, have a good day (and rest of the year!).
