Brinon sur Sauldre – A Family French Holiday

In the summer we took a lovely road trip through the tunnel to the small village of Brinon sur Sauldre where we had rented a villa for the week to celebrate a momentous family occasion.

We all had a great time and the kids had a ball in the pool!

A trip to Normandy, France, on the French exchange

Our school took part in an exchange program with a French school, where students would have a pen pal and exchange letters etc. Then once a year they would spend a week with their pen pal, staying with them in France.

I was asked to go with the French department on the trip. I think this was mainly because I was a man (there was a shortage of male teachers at the time) and also because I was young, without a family and could afford to spend a week away from home.
