Paris: Beyond the Tourist Trail

Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame, Champs-Elysee, and the Arc de Triomphe. These are just a few of the major sights that Tourists flock to on a trip to Paris. This is understandable of course, everyone wants to see these major sights that Paris has to offer. I myself spent my first two trips to Paris visiting these major tourist attractions, so who am I to judge. However, I now find that my favourite places to visit or to see are those that...

Obernai Fetes the Arrival of Autumn

Walking Tall at Obernai Fetes When I arrived in Strasbourg to work as an English teaching assistant it was late September it was unseasonably warm and sunny. As autumn finally (and somewhat surprisingly) descended upon Strasbourg the leaves turned brown and amber and yellow and red, and on a clear blue Sunday morning I met up with some of the other assistants for La Fête d’Automne in the town of Obernai. The first proper chill...

A Peak in Provence, France VII

Editor’s Note: This is one installment of a seven-week series from an ITKT featured writer. For the first time I hold my own in a little shop, buying souvenirs.  The man behind the counter is patient, and I sort of understand him as he sort of understands me.  I know if I stayed longer, the language would begin to seep in.  It already has.   I walk the streets alone for the first time, silently saying goodbye to the people in the...

A Peak in Provence, France VI

Editor’s Note: This is one installment of a seven-week series from an ITKT featured writer. After breakfast I hike into the hills behind town.  I pass wildflowers and the occasional burro.  The roads are steep and curvy but I get to see another part of this world, large houses tucked behind stone walls and wrought iron gates.  Many have expansive patios facing the patchwork of vineyards beyond.  I can’t decide which one should be my...

A Peak in Provence, France IV

Editor’s Note: This is one installment of a seven-week series from an ITKT featured writer. This morning my I-phone alarm sounds off at a strange time and I reach over to investigate.  But the alarm tone I chose a year ago, church bells, is not coming from this device.  It’s coming from outside my window, the call to Saturday mass.  I’ve grown to love this ancient form of communication, so different from the modern world with...
