Remember those ‘most likely to’ awards in school, like most likely to succeed and most likely to be famous? Well today’s round of Expat Escapades is a ‘most likely to’. I just feel like it.
But thanks to Gregory, I don’t live in a city, I live in a tiny village (thank you Gregory [insert sarcasm font here]). Of course as much as I do wish I lived in a big city, I wouldn’t go back and change things for anything, especially after reading Kate’s French Dating Horror Stories post. It without a doubt wins the award for most likely to make me happy I met Gregory.
So even though I live in a village when I’d rather live in a city, I’m still in France, which lets face it, isn’t a shabby place to be, just ask Anna. Anna lives here too and her post about tasting the first Beaujolais Nouveau of 2013 wins the most likely to make me appreciate living in France award, because we live in a place that goes absolutely cray cray, every year when the first wine of the season is bottled, sold, and sipped. It’s a wino thing.
But with all of that French goodness like wine comes a trade off, like with television, I have to say, it’s not the best here. So the award for most likely to make me nod my head in agreement goes to Louisa and her post, The Wonders of Italian Television. I guess Italy is in the same boat as France on this one… the good wine, bad TV boat… in fairness, it’s not a bad boat to be in.
I’m sure Jessica would agree with me. Jessica took a Vespa tour in Tuscany and if that doesn’t win the award for most likely to make me want to go on holiday right now, then I don’t know what does.
If I did get to go on holiday, I’d love to bring all of my friends from back home with me because I’m missing them right now (i.e., the Thanksgiving Blues) and Alex’s Onesie Party certainly didn’t help, so the award for most likely to make me wish I could hang with my girls goes to Alex (it also makes me really, really wish I had a onesie… Santa, take note).
