Eurotrip Tips goes to… Europe!

Posted on 11. Apr, 2011 by in Europe Travel, expat France

So you guys wondered what had happened to this blog, eh?

I had to keep my project a surprise for many reasons but now I can finally reveal the reason of overall inactivity around here.

Eurotrip Tips is moving to France!

Striped shirts, baguettes, croissants au chocolat and wine, the whole deal. Oh and did I mention I will be living right above a chocolatier? That ain’t good news for my cholesterol (although my flat tire and I are beyond ourselves).

I’m leaving Canada mid-May… and I count the days like a little girl. I’m really excited! Because this time around, I know exactly what NOT to do and I intend on making great souvenirs out of this adventure. I already have so many things planned!

And finally, calling all travellers: what are your best central France tips? Where are the best wineries? The prettiest castles? The most breathtaking views? The quirkiest sights? I want to know it all.

What to expect on this blog until mid-May? Radical appearance changes, preparation-related posts, Bucket Lists and much more!

      J’espère pouvoir travailler vite pour couvrir mes dépenses mais aussi pour rencontrer des gens. Mais pas un travail hyper prenant, plus quelque chose comme serveuse dans un café ou un pub. :)

      Thanks ladies for your comments, they’re all greatly appreciated. I’m moving to a mid-sized town called Clermont-Ferrand, it seems delightful. Right above a chocolatier!

      And thanks for the offer Katherina, I might take you up on that offer :)

      Brenna: I’m not sure yet. I would love to find a small job as pub/café waitress, just so I can meet locals and truly experience France. As for my free time… hiking and blogging will fill most of it, I think. The French seem especially fond of hiking, I’ll have to get used to it!

    Est-ce que ton chum est en génie ? J’ai une amie qui a habité là, je pense, pendant 1 an pendant que son chum faisait un stage. Je ne veux pas te décourager, car toutes les situations sont différentes, mais elle a passé pratiquement 6 mois à essayer de trouver un travail. La paperasse et le manque de postes disponibles ont été débiles. Je pense qu’elle a fini par travailler dans un resto chinois quelque temps, mais qu’au bout du compte, elle s’est dit tant pis, je laisse laisser pour cette année :-) Si tu veux, je peux te refiler ses coordonnées.

      Ça m’angoisse profondément pour le travail… j’ai un ami français qui m’a bien fait sentir que j’allais avoir de la difficulté à trouver quelque chose !

      Oui, mon chum est en génie. Heureusement (pour nos finances!).
