Goodbye Scotland!

Salut S3 et Monsieur Reaper!

It was so nice to meet you all the other week. I hope you all did well on your test (and I’m sure there was no need to worry!)

When I visited you I still had 2 weeks until my flight to France. Now, I have 5 days. I have to say I’m a bit nervous, and I’m already missing my family and friends, but I’m equally excited to go. 

I will arrive in Charles De Gaulle airport in the evening on Wednesday, and spend the night in an Airbnb in Paris! I’m really excited, Paris was one of the cities I’ve been looking forward to visiting the most! Then the following day I might walk around a little, if I have time, and in the afternoon, I’ll travel from Paris to Avignon.

I’ve been sending emails back and forth with the lady whose house I’ll be staying in, and it makes me feel a bit more at ease knowing that she’ll be there to help me if I need anything.

For now, all I can do is start packing. I have a list of essentials that I need to bring with me. Can you work out what they are?

mes vêtements
mon passeport
mon téléphone
ma portefeuille
une brosse à dents
les livres
un appareil photo

And now I have a question for you all! If you were going to France for a year, apart from all the essentials like passports and phones, what would be the one thing you would HAVE to take with you? Mine is a dog plushie that my dad gave me when I was 7 years old. His name is Cezary, he’s a Saint Bernard :)


Are there any other things you would take with you? Try to talk about them in French!

I guess now I have to go finish packing... I'm looking forward to hearing back from you! À bientôt! :)
