What I learned while in France
I learned so many things in France.
I learned that in the past 15 years everyone in Paris has learned how to speak English. Thank you!
I learned that all of the food is beautiful.
I learned that the food is so fresh and delicious that I am now ruined for this stuff we eat in America.
I learned that it's best to go potty on the train, because if you wait to go at the station it will cost you 9euros.
I learned that French people are the kindest, most helpful folks you will ever meet.
I learned that sometimes it's best to close your eyes when your taxi driver is determined to deliver you quickly to your destination regardless of traffic jams and road conditions. Yikes!
I learned that I could easily live in France and enjoy every moment of it.
I learned that just because the buildings are hundreds of years old on the outside doesn't mean they aren't new and modern on the inside.
I learned that French hotels don't put their potties in the bathroom, they like to hide them to see how bad you really have to go! LOL
I learned that no matter where you eat, the food will be amazing and the service will be great!
I learned that trains, trams and metros are really a much better way to travel than car.
I learned that the Eiffel Tower really is magical at night.
I learned that I love reading the history and stories that accompany the ancient landmarks.
I learned that strawberries from the local market taste nothing like American strawberries. They melt in your mouth and have so much more flavor!
I learned that I can go a whole week without any plastic products. Really.
I learned that those fancy little colored macaroons are as delicious as they are pretty!
I learned that I want to slow down and savor the small moments and simple pleasures like I did in France.
I learned that being a quilter connects me to some amazing people not only in France, but all over the world!
I learned that every time I go to France, I fall more deeply in love with it.
