It’s been one year since I arrived in France.
It’s been one year since I started this blog.
It’s been one year since I stepped into this exciting stage in my life.
It’s really been one year. Wow.
I want to make this a comprehensive and representative post of the past year, in Bordeaux, in Louvain-la-Neuve, and really, just Europe in general (minus the one month back in Canada).
What changed since I first stepped foot into Bordeaux? What didn’t change? Let’s try chart form.
As another school year has just begun (yup, second year thesis student now!) I thought I’d take a memory trip back and list some “favourites” of the year in photos. This will definitely be a fun entry to write and also to look back on in the future!
Favourite place in Bordeaux
Place de la Bourse at night, by the Miroir d’Eau
Without a doubt, it is the Miroir d’Eau, or Water Mirror by the riverside. I like to take strolls at night after dinner and somehow I often end up here to chill or just watch the reflection of Place de la Bourse in the water while waiting for the mist to come out every 15 minutes. When it is not too cold, I love to take off my shoes and dip my feet into the water, sometimes having water fights with my buddies who come along. It’s one of those places that makes you feel like you’re truly in France, carefree and relaxed.
