I’m back from France and there is always something special about coming home. I had a blast and I loved France, although it was a bit challenging at times with my lacking knowledge of French.
It always amazes me how different other countries and cultures are and there is always some culture shocks. For me it was the notebooks, coffee and not being allowed to pay with my card everywhere!
The coffee at my friend’s house was actually Italian, made using a macchinetta. It tasted pretty much like the coffee I drink at home, so once I learned how to brew with the macchinetta I was fine!
I’m spoiled and used to being able to pay everywhere with my card. I found of the hard way that in France you often had to have a total of 5-10€ before they would accept a card transaction.
This is what a typical notebook in France looks like, notice all the extra lines!
But all in all, such a fun trip and I’ll probably share more about it in the future. France is a fantastic country, and also the country that has the most incoming tourists in the world and I can definitely see why!
