As I prepared for a presentation to complete my internship in Nantes, France, I found this article online of the holiday show that I did with another intern at École Villa Maria.
Neither of us remember posing for this picture! But it’s a great memory of a fantastic evening!

My favourite new song from his “Origin of Love” Album 2012
I never really thought I’d get a chance to see Mika live. He’s popular in North America, but not the level of crazy-popular that he is in Europe. And I’m a bit crazy about the guy & his music.
So you can picture the mini freak-out dance I did when I realized that Mika would be touring to Nantes (my home in 2012)!
He played November 26th at Cité des Congrès in Nantes, France
I’ve had my first full whirlwind week in France. It’s had ups. It’s had downs. And in a short time I’ve already learned a lot. Let’s Go:
My first COUCHSURFING experiences were fantastic. For my hosts in both Paris & Nantes, I was their first and they were mine. They were generous with their personal space and their time and they helped me get this French adventure off to a very good start.
But then academic life started and things went nutty for a while! I clearly should have had more than a glass of water for breakfast because everything took longer than expected & I went from 08h30 until 18h without any food or drink!
TRAM LINE #2 – MY BEST FRIEND
I went back & forth on this line about 11 times on my first day at the University of Nantes!
But no matter where I went, no matter what part of the city I was in, I could be guaranteed one thing: before long someone eating a baguette or a pastry would walk by!
So here’s a quick glimpse of Nantes….not a bad spot to call home for 4 months
