  • Ten hours in Toulouse

    Last September, while au pairing in the small French town of Pamiers, I decided to venture, on one of my days off, to nearby Toulouse. I left the house bright and early (at least by the standards of a nocturnal university student) and was strolling along the streets of...

  • Come back to France, Toulouse's direction!

    The advantage of living in the north of Spain (Zaragoza) is having a direct access on the south of France. According to the breton inside me, I've barely gone more down than Bordeaux and less more in autumn. It can be said that to me the South is not really accessible...

  • Week 11: The Final Weeks

  • Week 9: The Week of the Paris Attacks & Dealing with the Aftermath of Incidents / Attacks Abroad
