Welcome - Plans for this blog (it's not rocket surgery!)

Hello and welcome to my blog. My life for the next year is roughly something like this:
  • I arrive in Paris the 16th October, start language classes at Alliance Francaise until Christmas.
  • Spend Christmas holidays with Cecile's family, maybe even sneak in some skiing in the alps (yeah I know - très cool)
  • Head off to The Hague in Holland to start an internship at the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia on the 8th of January.
  • Return the Paris the start of April.
I plan to post a couple of photos once a week to give you a snap shot of my life. So the best thing to do is, if you're keen, just check this site once a week when you have a spare moment and you can keep up to date with what's happening in my life.
You can leave comments telling me what you think, or just generally what's going on in your life, or what you've been thinking about recently. Or, alternatively, send me an email at

Cheers, and remember, keep smiling, there's undoubtedly someone worse off than you.

Thank you James and Cecile; you remind us of special times we have had in Paris.. long ago by the calendar, but seem only yesterday when you remind us.

Babar the elephant lost his crown in Paris, because of a mix up with his luggage. He eventually found it on the Eiffel tower. Our David, having had that story read to him before he first went to Paris at the age of 2, on seeing the Eiffel Tower simply pointed to it and said "Eiffel Tower, Babar!"

Enjoy it all!!!

love and best wishes, Bill and Leslie in Berry NSW
