Signe's Take on the School of Hard Knocks

Location

Villard de Lans
France

Day 5, and each day is better than the day before here at the French B&B, La Villa Primerose, in Villard de Lans in the French Alps.  This part of our experience has its downsides.  But, it's all a matter of my state of mind and attitude.  At my age (MYOB) it is difficult to be told daily that my French is lousy and will probably always be so.  And I admit, it's not much fun to lower myself to the role of dishwasher, table setter, and

BARCELONA! Green Man/Fashionistas/Mortal Combat
