    One Night in Montpellier

    September 26, 2019 in France ⋅ ☀️ 24 °C

    In der eher "jungen" Stadt Montpellier kamen wir auf unserem Weg nach Toulouse, unserem letzten Ziel in Südfrankreich, vorbei. Obwohl wir nur auf der Durchreise waren, hatten wir trotzdem einen ziemlich schönen Abend mit unseren Hosts Daniela und Evan. Von Daniela konnten wir so einiges an hilfreichen Tips für ihr Heimatland Kolumbien bekommen... Auch wenn das noch ein Weilchen hin ist :P Am nächsten Morgen hat Evan uns dann seine Stadt gezeigt, denn als Feuerwehrmann hat man in Frankreich so einiges an Urlaub, sogar mehr als wir bei Ford hatten!!! Leider hatten wir schon unseren Anschluss in Toulouse gebucht, sonst wären wir definitiv länger dort geblieben... Dennoch freuen wir uns die nächsten drei Tage mal an einem Ort zu verbringen, weil drei Städte in drei Tagen schon ganz schön anstrengend waren. Das soll jetzt aber keine Beschwerde sein :D!Read more

    September 16, 2018 in France ⋅ ☁️ 24 °C

    Hi. It’s Dale and Mama. We are writing about some of the animals we’ve seen in France. In Paris, we saw a lot of pigeons. If a random lady puts food on your head near Notre Dame cathedral, you will have a pigeon chapeau! In Strasbourg, we went to Parc de l’Orangerie where there was a little zoo. We saw flamingos, spider monkeys, parrots, wallabies, and white Alsatian storks (les cigognes) with really big nests that are native to Strasbourg. In Cormatin, which is a little village near Cluny where we stayed for 3 days, we saw lots of cute cats and kittens, and we saw three beautiful horses playing and jumping with each other and with their owner, Celeste. It was really neat to watch and I got to ride Assia, the white one, with no saddle! Finally, I met Java the sheep dog, and his sheep friends at the Acro-Bath, where we went climbing in the trees. Java had one white and blue eye, and the other was brown and black! That’s all for now. Bye!Read more

    Weather in Montpellier

    October 4, 2018 in France ⋅ 🌙 19 °C

    We haven’t had a drop of rain since we arrived... I fear it is coming, especially when we biked under this last night on our way through La Comedie. Montpellier is ready!
    (Actually, they are part of fundraising event for breast cancer research - I learned this when we walked by them today).Read more

    Montpellier aquarium

    October 11, 2018 in France ⋅ ☁️ 20 °C

    Have you ever been to an aquarium? Have you ever seen who’s hiding under the water? Well I have. Because today we biked to the Montpellier aquarium and it was AWESOME! We did a project in school about the aquarium and we each chose two different animals to learn about and find in the aquarium.we found Chloe’s arawana and arapaima my cape penguin and the tail of my pyjama shark and Malcolm’s zebra shark but his other one the nautilus wasn’t there anymore. We saw lots of cool and colourful fish. we also saw jellyfish and sea horses but my favourite part was the cape penguins.If you were there you could probably tell it was my favourite part because I stood there and watched them for a loooooooong time.

    L'art partagé et l'art singulier

    November 9, 2018 in France ⋅ 🌧 14 °C

    Dale and Lara finally got to a gallery walk on their last rainy Friday in Montpellier. We saw Yann Dumoget and his “peinture partagée” - Dale loved how you could recognize different places in his artwork (like the sea, a volcano, the desert), and then see how members of the public graffitied them. Then we went to the Musée d’art brut et d’art singulier (raw and outsider art) - it was filled with wondrous and creative paintings and sculpture - many of the artists were institutionalized with mental health issues, and were not initially recognized as artists for this reason. Dale noticed lots of cats, Lara loved the powerful colours and (sometimes playful, sometimes disquieting) creativity. We are posting a few photos here to “educate” (sorry, copyright reference...). Thank you in advance to the artists!Read more

    "Welcome to France..."

    September 30, 2018 in France ⋅ ☁️ 22 °C

    I heard this (spoken sympathetically) three times last week, from locals... here’s why - Our first travel SIM card finally ran out. We had picked it up in the Reykjavík airport, so this time, Geoff figured the train station would be a place to start... this was followed by many subsequent visits to the provider “Bouygues” where we were told “this is not our product” (despite the company name on the card). After having to activate (by phone), then register our identity (by phone), then switch providers, find a new card, show our passport and register our identity, then dial more phone numbers in a confusion sequence... we finally, several days lasted, have a French phone number and data plan... in contrast, check out what we had to do with Vodaphone in Iceland!Read more

    Montpellier : récap'

    November 29, 2018 in France ⋅ ⛅ 13 °C

    Je suis resté à Montpellier 6 jours. Pourquoi pas plus d'infos sur le blog? Tout simplement parce que chaque jour était similaire au précédent : "Les jours se suivent, mais... mais si, se ressemblent"
    J'ai toujours dormi au même endroit, je n'ai jamais été chassé. J'ai fait la manche au même endroit. J'ai mangé le soir dans des associations (Restos du Cœur, Croix-Rouge, etc...)
    La question est : quelle différence entre avec et sans routine?
    Savoir où dormir, ne pas être inquiet de manger, c'est un luxe. C'est déstressant, on commence à voir apparaître la "vie normale" : lorsque je suis sur le chemin du retour, j'ai l'impression de rentrer chez moi. J'ai même des horaires de "travail" définis par les heures d'ouverture des associations.
    La vie n'est pas encore facile, mais elle l'est déjà plus que de ne pas avoir de routine.

    This was our lunch stop. We loved the city center felt like Paris beside the sea. We took a quick look around and we were off.

    Montpellier, France

    April 12, 2016 in France ⋅ ⛅ 15 °C

    Just arrived in Montpellier. What a cool place this is. The hotel we are staying in is Grand Hotel De MIDI. It is really nice and handy. 5 minutes walk from the train station if you walk the right way around the block and real close to the city centre. The hotel staff thus far are really nice to and speak very good english. Acually one of the fellas is English. The weather is overcast at the moment. Hopefully it will be kind to us so we can get out and explore.
    Day 2. Another great day. Spent the day walking around the city. The shops don't open until 10am so we set off just before that. We went to place de la comedie, les 3 graces, les operas, ancien ampitheatre, saint - come, tour de la babote, eglise et quartier saint roch, quartier saint anne, palais de justice, arc de triomphe replica of the original that is in Paris, place royale du peyrou, aqueduc saint - clement, chateau d' eau, cathedral saint - piere, la faculte de medecine, jardin des plantes, tour des pins, chapelle saint charles, esplanade charles de qaulle, Maison des relations internationales (Nelson Mandala) garden.
    It rained in the afternoon but the sun came out beautiful again.
