Jason and Kate are 2 very nice people we met at Lotte and Stus place earlier this summer. They recently graduated from the University of South Florida in St. Petersburg, Florida. Before getting a job they decided to go on a five-month trip across Europe. You can read their adventures and take a look at Jasons wonderful pictures on their TravelBlog.

What did you have for dinner? Cheese. Welcome to the country of cheese. This is my list of all the cheeses I have tasted up till now:
3. Brie de meaux
4. Cantal entre deux
5. Camembert rustique
7. Rouleaux de chèvre
8. B-che de chèvre
9. Bleu d’auvergne (I just love this one!)
10. Comté extra (oh dear!)
11. Emmental râpé
What do you think? Nice, isn’t it… There is something about cheese, I just don’t know what.
Yesterday, we had a wonderful climbing day at Freyr. We arrived there at ten and we had to leave because of the dark at half past eight . Plenty of time to do some really nice routes. Thanks to Joon for the nice trip and tanks to Joon and Sam for using al your equipment.
De Rochers de Freyr is het grootste en belangrijkste klimmassief van het land. De site telt ruim 600 routes in alle stijlen en moeilijkheidsgraden. De populariteit van het massief heeft er wel voor gezorgd dat routes in de lagere niveau’s zeer sterk kunnen afgeklommen zijn maar dit doet niets af aan de internationale uitstraling van Freyr.
Wanneer men van de linkeroever van de Maas het massief bekijkt, valt het op dat de rotsen ontzettend smalle graten zijn. De opbouw van de rotsen is zeer gevariÃƒÂ«erd, van plaat tot sterk overhangend.
After all it is not that bad… Today I got green light for my GST (Individual Study Program). This means I can do the two courses from my second year, all the courses from the third year AND my training/working period. So from now on I can start looking for a place/company where I can work 13weeks (in a period of 15weeks – from February 5th till May 15th 2007).
Now I'm back from France I can start counting down :) 4,5 months / 19 weeks / 140 days and Petra will be back.
As we have some problems with calling over voip with Skype, Msn,.. its even harder to hear from each others without calling from my Belgian mobile to her Belgian mobile over France. Therefore Petra is looking to buy a French SIMcard so I can call her from here and her classmates there can reach her as well.
I want to wich you good luck and see you soon!
Hi people, It’s allready my second week in France and I’m still figuring out which lessons I will follow next semester. I must tell you, this is heaven on earth, I fell in love with France for the 5th time, I think. They have everything here: good food, nice weather (even snow in the winter!!!) and not to forget their beautiful language ‘Le Français’.
This night we’ve slept with 4 students at my apartment, 2 girls and a boy who were looking for a place to live in (they’ve managed to find something finally) and of course ME.
Starting from tomorrow, as they all found a place to live in, I’ll be lonely again at my apartment. Don’t mind that actually, I like being on my own.
So wish me luck!!!
Finally I have some time for vacation… Tonight Petra and I are leaving for Clermont Ferrand.
So I’m sure she’ll be ok there :) and I can prepare myself mentally for school – not -
This will be 10 days for the two of us without thinking or doing something for school.
I’m allready looking forward to walk the Puy de Dome, order myself a Panaché on a terrace, going for some fresh Baguettes to the Boulanger.
Maybe you’ve allready noticed some difference, maybe not yet.. recently I decided to change the language of my site. And so it is, from now on I’ll try to write as much as possible in English, maybe it will be a bit difficult from time to time, but I try to keep my word! It’s not only a good exercise for me as a student Russian-French (!) but my site will also be much more accessible for much more English speaking people.
So, Welcome to my site and enjoy yourself!
Tomorrow, Bram and I are leaving to France (whohoooo!). Bram will stay there 10 days, I will live the following 5 months in this beautiful country. I’m quite nervous to be honest, not really knowing why. I have a great expectancy: nice apartment, exciting city, beautiful nature and of course, not to forget, delicious French food (whohooo!). What else do I need?
Hope everything will be alright and I hope to learn a lot there!!!
