Halloween!

November 9, 2012 admin 2

Halloween is definitely my favourite holiday (except for the ones that involve presents) because it’s the one time of the year that I can dress up, paint my face and walk around for the whole day with looks of approval from everyone on the bus (my costumes are really co …

Grenoble in Black and White

October 29, 2012 admin 0

When walking around the city center, it’s really important to do one thing: look up. While most of the buildings are lined with large-windowed shops on the ground floor, the subsequent floors are beautifully decorated with ornaments in different styles. After fiddling a …

Life is goooooood

This weekend was exactly what I pictured when moving to France: wine, foie gras, wine, more wine, wine. Not only did the weather rewind back to summer (right after I bought a new winter coat! Maybe if I buy mittens in a few weeks the magic will work again?), but the annual Mi …

Despite a cold and rainy morning, I hauled myself out of bed for a class that I’ve been really looking forward to for a month. Et Toque! is a great little place that offers all types of cooking classes, but today they had something that was more down my alley: a food ph …

Yummy Vienne

September 22, 2012 admin 1

What would this blog be without food? In fact, what would a trip to France be without food? So here is a post dedicated to the deliciousness that we experienced while on our day trip to Vienne. Since you can’t get a bite to eat here between 3 and 7pm, we thought ahead a …

More Roman Ruins: Day trip to Vienne

September 22, 2012 admin 1

After visiting the Bastille last Saturday, we headed off to the ancient city of Vienne the following day. As it turns out, the Rhône-Alpes region was inhabited first by the Gauls and then by the Romans (like in Asterix and Obelix). The city of Vienne is located about 30 km s …
