Hey! I’m Annabel, a third year student at the University of Southampton studying French with Italian. I’m currently on a year abroad in the beautiful city of Grenoble, situated in south-eastern France and at the foot of the Alps. Here you can keep up to date with my adventures : my attempts at Frenchifying myself, skiing, French food making me fat, the progress (mainly woes) of my year abroad project, all the fun I have, the new places I get to explore, all the embarrassing things that happen to me, and the general highs and lows of my experience. I hope you can all try to enjoy my random ramblings – I really can talk for England, so I’m sorry if I bore you, but equally thank you for taking an interest in my year abroad!
