An interesting question to ask when considering an extended trip, say a three month soujourn, is how do you occupy yourself? If you’re in Europe, can you really just occupy your time with castle ruins, cathedrals, French Alps, bike races and eating? Or do you need to settle and take up short courses, read European history and engage in local debate? Poised to ask this question when a text arrived at 3.00 AM EST with the photo below. A snapshot of a man clearly enjoying himself on a hot French day in a glorious swimming pool attached to a very nice hotel in Southern France.
Now that looks a good way to occupy yourself!
We will be able to ask him the question ourselves when we meet up with Bob in Grenoble and walk the French Alps together.
Getting excited. Getting very excited.
