And it’s Done

So I know I’ve been MIA for a bit but the past couple of weeks have been crazy (and don’t worry I have a rich backlog of posts for you). First it was getting sick, then en Primeur, then exams and then a visit with the family. And there have been wine festivals, birthday parties and tasting. Up next, a weekend visit from my good friend M.

But the really important news is: the school year is over!!!! Ok there is actually a thesis to write and eventually defend. But the academic summer is here which means now it’s back to my internship full-time. And another summer of wine adventures!

So since I’m not yet used to normal 9-5 hours any longer, I’m gonna keep this short and sweet. The promised posts will appear shortly. And in the meantime remember …

Hello Again!

It’s been ages since I wrote. Although to be perfectly accurate I should say: it’s been ages since I posted. I’ve been writing. I have several posts that have already been written but never seemed to make it to the website. All I can say is: I’ve been too busy having too much fun to actually post them.

Barcelona, Arcachon, Brussels, Boston, New York, California, Cornwall again, Bordeaux Fete le Vin, Valencia… I’ve been busy racking up the miles and living out of a suitcase. In fact, I’m celebrating the fact that I’ve only lost one item in all the mayhem. Granted it was a favorite coat, but I’ll keep looking for a replacement.

This has been my first quiet weekend in a while. In fact, I’m celebrating by being domestic: eight loads of laundry, writing my internship report, floor to ceiling apartment scrubbing, grocery shopping, napping, etc. And of course plotting for my next trip. I have another month an a half before my internship contract is over for the summer. And August is going to look a little boring – most of France and a lot of my friends will be on holiday. So…next stop, Georgia (and yes the country not the state) or maybe it’s actually the camping trip to the Bayonne ferias or maybe back to Germany for another visit with the family. Either way…I’ll be in touch. Or maybe, I’ll be too busy travelling. Either way this has been a summer to remember.
