Experiencing the French Culture

I’ve been in Poitiers(France) for a month and have met many amazing people here. I want to introduce you to an amazing couple, Jeannie and Joel. Jeannie was a primary school teacher and Joel, a supervisor/Manager in a shop. They’re both retired now and they just travel to different parts of the world to make pictures and experience new cultures and learn from them. Yesterday, they invited my friend and I to spend a day with them. We visited a really nice photo festival based on the theme “Humanity”, after which we were offered a traditional French dinner. I must say the food was pretty delicious, and their hospitality, amazing! 
They have a simple home filled with a lot of plants, which are souvenirs from various parts of the world, and also a camping car to go on bold adventures across Europe. We look forward to meeting them again soon.

When you are thousands of miles from home and a stranger makes an effort to make your stay comfortable, it is very heartwarming!

Here are some pictures.

Bonjour from France

My friends and I have moved to Poitiers, France to pursue our Masters in Aeronautical Engineering. It’s been three days and we are in love with the place. Here are a few pictures. 


Arrived in Paris and no trains to Poitiers in the evening. So we just went to bed at the TGV station in the airport.

 Finally arrived at the university after going through some serious shit!


On the way to Poitiers

 Poitiers downtown. Beautiful buildings and narrow streets.
