I have just returned from a week long holiday, staying in wonderful France. I was staying with my boyfriend and his Grandparent’s at their home in the middle of the expansive French countryside. My home for the week was in Ternand, a small and very quaint village in eastern France. We had a fantastic time, providing us with the opportunities to relax by the pool, go for afternoon strolls and just to enjoy being at one with nature. It was super hot to begin with, but we were often confronted with storms and rain. It was really nice to be able to just sit back and relax. Whilst visiting busy cities can be really enjoyable, sometimes the peace and quiet are much needed.
Here are just a few photos from our holiday, and keep checking back on my blog as I am in the process of writing up some blog posts about the different things we got up to in France!
I cannot believe that it is August already, where has the time flown? As I write this blog post, I look out from my desk onto my garden and it is raining. It hardly looks like summer here in England. Rain, rain, rain.

Who would have thought it this time two years ago, after graduating from the University of York, I would be graduating with a Master’s degree from Oxford? I certainly didn’t.
In January I was lucky to be given the funding from Jesus College to head over to Paris as part of my research for my dissertation. The main goal of this trip was to be able to see a manuscript that I am researching in person at the BNF (Bibliothèque Nationale de France). Continue reading “Research trip to Paris”
