Blog #1 seemed to have hit the dust, so we have re-invented. Here is blog #2! Not sure what happened, but happy to hear you all missed us because we were pretty devistated!
My email has been playing up since arriving in France, I was able to receive emails but not send them, Kate has since fixed the problem and I am back into the swing of things, keep and eye out for my address in your inbox with the link to this new blog!
Boy have you all missed things since the blog has been M.I.A.! Us big girls have been on the TGV (euro rail) and are now residing in Tours in the Loire Valley (not without a few difficulties and a complete f*** up of our itinerary.....). In short, Paris was freezing! As we are hoping to return in a few weeks, we will enjoy it in the warmer weather.
Today we arrived in Tours, a beautiful town, that we have walked around all day. Tours population is 300, 000. A university town, has tiny cobble stone streets lined with century old buildings and cathedrals. Every corner we turn is another delight to behold! Everything is within walking distance and it is all so pretty, the river, the parks the patisserie, the music shops. More importantly the wine is cheap! After 6 days of attempting French, we are finally starting to understand and communicate a little more. We are even starting to get things we think we are ordering in cafes.
And Joy if you didn't get to read the last post on blog #1, that wine opener is a life saver!
Lets hope blog #2 has a longer life-span! Love to hear from you all!

P.S. Sean (fellow Alliance student) we are so sorry we missed you in Paris, we tried to contact you but as you can read the email didn't work. Have a wonderful holiday. Can't wait to hear all about it!
