Best of 2012!

As it is almost the end of the year, it is a good time to reflect on all of the things that 2012 has brought us.
So, what have been your best moments of 2012? Do you have any personal highlights, or favourite stories you have seen in the media this year?

For me, I loved watching the Olympic Games this year. It was particularly special for me as I was living and working near the Olmpic Stadium in London! It changed the mood of people all over the UK,  who suddenly felt very proud of their country.

Also, on a more personal level, 2012 was very speical because it was the year I moved to France :)

What do you think?

Gap Year

In the UK, it has become very popular to spend a year in another country AFTER finishing your final exams (A-Levels) at school and BEFORE going to university. Many people travel  to the countries of their dreams, volunteer in poorer countries, or even earn money whilst gaining some experience in the world of work. This is known as a 'Gap year', and most people who take a gap year are aged 18-19.

My question to you is: would you like to take a gap year? If so, where in the world would you go and what would you do?

Let your imagination run wild!



Australia is a big and awesome country!

A continent full of cultural richess where we can admire the extraordinary flora and fauna.
This Island can make dreaming: the perfect beach of white sand, endless deserts, forests containing unusual wealth, big cities like Sydney,... (and there are so many bugs, spiders,... ahah)
but it is very far!
Have you ever visited the largest island in the Pacific? (it's so large that it's divised in 3 time zones!)
If yes, share your experience here!
