Twice in a lifetime
Photo of Rouen skyline taken by David in 2008
I started this blog 3 years and 4 months ago, as a way of keeping in touch with friends and family as we embarked on our 6-week house-swap in Rouen, France. That the trip even happened was amazing — a series of coincidences and opportunities resulting in a once-in-a-lifetime adventure.
Well, history is repeating itself. The family with whom we swapped 3 years ago has asked us (yes, they asked us!) if we'd be interested in swapping houses for the summer. After thinking it over for approximately 2 seconds, of course we said "absolutely!"
We are so excited to have a chance to go back to the charming town of Rouen in the summer this time. The fact that Anna will be 7 instead of 3 is going to make a huge difference. David will continue working for iovation, the company he joined in December of last year, and Anna and I will explore. We are currently working on our French, something I hope to continue with the Alliance Francaise de Rouen while we're there.
Needless to say, there will be lots of travel adventures and photos posted in the not-too-distant future. In the mean time, you can refresh your memory with my posts from our previous trip here.
P.S. In the right column of this blog I've started a list of some of the many great French blogs and language resources I've been finding. There's some really great stuff out there!
