thé à la menthe.

If you don't ask then you'll never know...   Hello, my name is Katy. Geordie/Glasgow girl. I like books that smell, highwaymen, lacy things, foreign languages, a nice cup of Earl Grey and my questionable music taste.

I lived in Russia for a year and several things happened:

I think Nancy, Strasbourg and Poitiers are my top three choices for my 3rd term in France…anyone got good/bad comments about the cities/university life in any of these? Help! :)

Back from a glorious week in Paris. I was so sad to leave this morning. Every time I go I find a new favourite place there and this time was no exception! [The flea market at St Ouen, in case you were wondering.]
Rock en Seine was insane and marvellous as usual. Saw Green Day for the first time. And cried slightly. Because I am lame and nostalgic and they were the first band I got obsessed with when I was about 11. And they played When I Come Around.
My lameness aside, we went to Versailles, Monet’s house at Giverny, and all over the centre of Paris. I hope I get the chance to live in Paris one day, it has everything.  

Back to uni next week, summer has flown by!

Off to Paris tomorrow.
Mainly to go to my favourite festival, Rock En Seine, [they do festivals better than we do in the UK, yeah I said it…] and be transported back to my childhood on Sunday night when Green Day headline, but also to swan around feeling classy.
A la semaine prochaine!

Rekindling my love for Jean Gabin. What an incredible man.
