Currently between, my job starts in Europe
It's my career
Well, I'll be based in Digne-les-Bains in Provence, France, and I intend to visit some old Rotary exchange host families of mine in Belgium and to hit Spain and Switzerland if possible.
I was a French major in college. I want to teach. Teaching in France was the perfect combo. I've already lived in Europe (Rotary exchange 1993) and absolutely everyone I knew encouraged me. So there you go.
Money. As in having none. And being stuck in bad situations without options out.
To the Nth degree. I think everyone wants to come with.
Planning is for tourists
I'm packing lots of things to use in classes like books and films, very few clothes, three pairs of shoes, and my laptop. I'd say the computer would be indispensable.
I hope I'll speak French better and that I'll get back some of my enthusiasm that sitting around dead-end jobs at college sucked out of me.
When do we leave?
You can see it that way. No stress. And there is the whole 'Before Sunrise' allure...
What can you see on a tour? I want to inhale every country. You can't do that with 30 other Americans around you.
It's going to be like Before Sunrise.
There's so much world outside that door, and the world's not slowing down...
Go. Now. You'll never regret it.
