We woke up early, ate a quick breakfast and then we were off to the airport. The flight was smooth and uneventful.

The airport is called Orly, named after the city it is in. The kids thought this was pretty funny as our vacuum robot is also called Orly.


After we figured out transit and got to our home for the week, we were all tired and hungry. After unpacking my backpack, we set off to find some food. We came across an amazing bakery very close by and indulged in some fabulous baking. Then it was off to the grocery store to stock up.

It is interesting shopping in a country different than your own as they carry different products as well as packaging things differently. The milk and eggs aren’t refrigerated and the produce was really packaged.


We eventually found everything, though there were a few substitutions.

When people talk to me in a different language my natural inclination is to just answer in English, even if I know a phrase or two in the language they are speaking to me in. I’m so used to just speaking in English. The kids like to practise their language skills.

Morgan took the kids to a playground this afternoon while I had a nap. (I’m sure hoping I’ll still be able to sleep tonight.) The kids made some friends and played well. They are awesome at travelling.

Tomorrow we are off to see some sights!

    Your kids are so cute with their backpacks. They look like the little world travelers that they are.
