You say goodbye and I say hello
I don't know why you say goodbye, I say hello
The good thing about still living in Rochefort is that I will be able to see some teachers that I have met, like Lydia and Caroline who I get along really well with. We will continue to go out for lunch or supper together every now and then and a really great thing is that I will be able to continue ...
... The location of Rochefort was ideal because of its location. It is inland a bit, but there is still access to it by the Charente river. At the mouth of the river, there are a few different islands that also aided in protecting it. La Corderie Royal (Royal Rope Factory) was a symbol that "France was fighting back against the naval power of the English".

NEXT choice was frangipane, which is a flaky pastry type cake with an almond filling, which is quite yummy, so I chose that. I also got a piece with a little heart in it that said I love St. ...
... and it ended up arriving 40 minutes early because of an unexpected tail wind apparently. So it seemed pretty short. Bonus! I was super happy to get a ride back to Rochefort from a fellow teacher who was in Paris for the second week of the break as well. That was a double bonus and I’m very thankful. So it only cost 35 euros instead of 100 and some odd euros (the prices of the trains were abnormally high) and I had some good company.
