Vacances de Noel: Part 3

This post is the last of three, but it is the most... let's just say interesting.

I have moved onto a new level in my life, I have now lived like a typical French person.  Just without the mustache and beret in Paris :) I have walked through downtown with a baguette in my arm though.

So, a quick quiz.

What is the first thing you think of (food wise) when you think of France?

Think about it for a minute and then look below...

YES!! I ate escargots! In fact, I ate TWO, to really try them.  They are really not that bad, very chewy and garlicky. That was it really, I mean they weren't bad, but I have to admit that they were very pretty.

That was the day before New Year's Eve, and then I tried something else on New Year's Eve. Oysters!  I also ate two, but the first was plain, salty, with no dressing, but the second was with a vinegar, which was better.  They were hard to chew, you just had to swallow them whole.  They were fine, but I would not choose to eat them again, at least I tried them!

So this vacation was very productive, with many new places, people and foods.  I am so glad that I am in France and am given all of these amazing opportunities.

Actually, I would like to take a moment to thank my Mom and Dad for making this experience possible. I love you guys.<3

Toon in soon to my new everyday adventures!


  1. Vic,
    Mom and I both want to say "You're Welcome". We knew this would be a wonderful life-changing experience, and we're both glad that it has lived up to its promise. But none of this would be possible without your hard work, flexible attitude, and openness to new ideas, cultures, and experiences.
    We're both so proud of you. We feel a true sense of satisfaction reading your blog, knowing that this experience was all you hoped it would be.

    Mom and Dad

  3. You go girl! Escargot and oysters, I must say I haven't tried them and don't think I could!!! Your experiences sound amazing; all the places you have seen, the people you have met and the yummy found you are getting a chance to try. Hope you are keeping them all written in journals so you can reflect back once you come back home. We love reading your blog!

    We sent a package but it is taking 2 weeks to get there...good think I didn't bake cookies! Anyway it should be arriving this week. So be on the lookout for it. Have a great weekend!
