|Me @ Mont Saint Michel w/ Quicksand!|
I was fortunate enough to spend my last four days here with my teammates up in Bretagne France, seeing the local sights and celebrating my coach’s 30th birthday. We visited the town of Morlaix, walked along the coast of Finistere, marveled at Mont Saint Michel (which has quicksand around it– SO COOL), and sat on the beaches of Saint Malo. The places we got to see were so beautiful and well, European. I’m really going to miss it here.
At the same time…

That being said…
My favorite part of the trip was really just talking and hanging out with my teammates. I think I learned more French in these past four days than I learned all year. Sure, I had to actively listen to understand what they were talking about (and sometimes I just zoned out and turned off my ‘pay attention’ button), but by the end of the trip I felt like I had successfully communicated with each and every one of them. Saying my goodbyes was really difficult; I feel like my Swiss teammates really embraced me this year. I don’t think I could have handpicked a better group of girls to spend my first year away from home and in a foreign country with.

So where does that leave us, my dear blog readers?
I’m going to say goodbye to you too, since I’m heading back into work on Monday and will be back to my American routine. Who knows though, maybe I’ll let you know what’s going on from time to time this summer. Thanks for reading, and until next year, au revoir!
