En France, Part 1

Well, I have just arrived in France but not en route to Brindisi, simply en route to Boulogne-sur-mer with eighty children in tow. We are only here for a day to visit a boulangerie, a sweet factory and do some shopping in the town itself. It’s not the stuff of adventure if you are about to embark on an epic trip to the south of Italy but I suppose if you are only twelve years old it is up there in the great events of your life so far. I’m back here Thursday to repeat the exercise with another group of students before returning for a third time next Tuesday with just my bike for company and 3,500 kilometres in front of me….

  1. Yes, I can’t complain! It is fun to be able to go to France three times in the space of one week and take part in the things that 12 year old like doing; keeps me young(ish) 🙂

  2. When I was around twelve, I was in a French class and just beginning to learn about France (and Europe) I could only Imagine visiting it, my life may have been a lot different…those kids are lucky to be so close as to do a day trip and Andrew, you’re lucky to do this as well!
