    Actually no. Sorry I win.

    The proper fight should be:

    http://www.googlefight.com/index.php?word1=windsurfing+australia&word2=windsurfing+%22new+zealand%22

    PS: now if you divide these figures by the respective number of sheep and kangaroos in New Zealand and Australia I’m not sure who wins.

    a « hello » wouldn’t be unwelcome.

    alternatively, Google is your friend.

    Whereabout are you going in France? Any chance we can catch up in Paris?

    On my side not much news either.

    Actually yes there is news. I’m changing jobs in a month or two. I’ll still be in in paris though.

    And we’re getting things ready for our wedding…

    Hi Tadpole, Effisk, Oz Boy & others.

    Not much to report here either, it’s research, research, research here, finalising the little details and bookings for my 1 month trip around France……takeoff is in 3 weeks and 1 day now, and I can’t wait to see France again after so long. 😀

    G’Day Everyone !

    I had a phone call yesterday from the agency which organized my trip to Sydney and the trip has been canceled because of a lack of inscription .

    But they suggested a new destination , Cairns.

    I’ve made some reshearch on the net , and now , I think Cairns would be better than Sydney :
    -Hotter Temperature ( Can I say it like that ? ) Sydney : 15 , Cairns : 25
    -I’d be near from the corail reef.
    -Water : 21° in Winter oO

    So , The 4th of July , I take a plane from Paris to London then One London to Singapour then one from Singapour to Cairns !

    What a exhausting journey !

    True, its a very tiring trip but just think once your there you can relax by the pool, go snorkeling in the crystal clear waters, take late afternoon strolls on the beach (to pick up all the gals!!), drink a cool beer with a friendly crowd in a pub … etc etc. Ah shit, im making myself home sick again!!!

    I really think your better off going up north, much better than sydney.

    Hi Oz Boy, Cairns should be a great atmosphere to learn English in….. and you’re right, much warmer than Sydney. Just don’t expect to see a beach at Cairns (more like mangroves and a big man made pool with sandy bottom) – you have to drive quite some way out of Cairns to see a beach. It’s a very lively town at night.

    Happy planning!

    Well here I was ready to come and apologize for not writing in the last month and surprise surprise, mine is the last post anyway!!

    Oz boy, you should be leaving pretty soon?? Getting excited.
    Kate, arent you supposed to be coming over to France soon too??

    My folks are here from Auckland so ive been busy catching up and sunbathing in my yard (not the same bloody thing as the beach).

    Who has been watching the world cup and the georgeous socceroos?? I think they are doing pretty well! Good on em. Cant wait for the rugby world cup here in France next year!! I hope someone will organize something for a couple of the matches, otherwise I’ll have to have all you yobbos over at my house for nibbles and beer! 🙄

    anyway, keep in touch all you english topic folks.

    Hi Everybody,

    I’ve just flown back in this morning, so half of me is here, and the rest is on jetlag, don’t really know where I am with only 1 hour of sleep.

    Quite a lot of adventures during our 5 week ‘tour de france’ – mostly by train (most of them good, with 2 exceptions, but my carnet de voyage will soon tell all).
    I’m still a francophile though despite having my wallet & cards stolen last Monday on the Paris metro, just 2 days before we were due to fly home….then on the metro on the way to the airport for Vietnam on Wednesday, somebody else decided to have a try for my backpack this time, but there was nothing in the pocket they managed to open when they bumped into me in the crowd, so at least I won that one. 😕

    Back online tomorrow if I’m over the jetlag.

    _ Kate, happy to ‘see’ you all again now I’m back online (found it very hard to find internet cafes in France on our travels…..they’re not everywhere like they are here, surprise. )

    PS: Welcome to Sarah and Marie too.

    Sorry to hear you misadventure in Paris’metro.. It is what we call a typical « piege a touriste »: Pickpockets notice you as a foreigner and guess you have quite some change on you for your tour expenses..
    Very common in Paris unfortunately-> besides, you don’t feel anything when it’s happening!

    Anyway, glad you had a « safe » trip (at least the flight was safe! 😉 ) and hope to get in contact with you soon again!
    Sorry I wasn’t able to join in Lyon,
    I heard you had a great time, so that’s perfect 🙂
    Take Care!

    Ok, dunno if I’ll get to catch up with you then! You’ll love Bordeaux, it is a great place to live, much better than Orleans 😆

    On another forum, Sylviedu75 posted a link of Oz students’forum, you might like to have a look 😉

    Well, well, well!! I guess everyone is on holidays, soaking up the sun!!

    Kate, hope you got home Ok from your long trip and your not suffering from jet lag!!?? God, that is what i hate the most about travelling!!

    Well, no holidays for me this summer, we arent going anywhere until end of september and we are going to ireland so no « sun filled » hols for me either I guess. Still, never been there, should be a nice change eh?

    Hi everybody, Hi Tadpole.

    Didn’t think the jetlag was too bad this time, but 1 month later and I still don’t wake up till 9 am of a morning and my husband is asleep in front of the tv by about 9 pm! 😮

    5 hours a day walking for 5 weeks must have been more of ‘a killer’ than we realized 😆 but for seeing villages and cities, it was the best (and so cheap) a way for us.

    If it will help your homesickness any, in Victoria at the moment we’re experiencing a fair few -3 deg C frosty, icy mornings, with the occasional brilliant blue (but still only about 8 deg c) day.

    I’d love to see Ireland some day, so green and all (even here in Winter, it’s not green yet, still mostly brown because of the drought)

    Regards,
    Kate

    Yeh, true Kate. I dont get homesick when I remember how freezing I used to be in winter in Melbourne. I hated getting up in the morning to go to school and I mostly remember puffing up my clothes with hot air over the duct heating before putting them on!! 🙂

    Then the sticking hot summers and the water restrictions.
    The thing I loved the most was the Moomba parade every year with family and freinds. Do they still have that Kate??

    Hi Tadpole, about Moomba, I wasn’t sure, as it’s been years since I’ve seen it on tv…but it still exists, under a new name.

    Why change it?? The Melbourne Moomba sounded quite neat eh?

    Hey everyone !!

    What a brilliant idea to post in English ! I lived in Ireland for a year and in Oz for a year as well and I miss speaking English ! I really do. Nobody speaks English here.
    I’d love to meet ozzies in my city. So if you are ozzie and live in Toulouse : email me NOW !!!!! 😀

    Anyway, I’ll come on this forum more often now.

    Tadpole : you’re gonna love Ireland ! it’s such a beautiful country and Irish are really friendly people. Ireland is like my second home !

    See ya folks

    anyway, hope to see you more here on the english topic, it is quite often down the bottom of the forum list or on page two!! gotta keep it up the top eh? 😮

    Yeah, it’s true ! I don’t know why people don’t come here to chat in English.
    I love speaking English. I’m looking forward to going back to Uni in October. I’ll be learning English of course !!

    Sometimes I kind of wish I lived in the North of France JUST because it’s not too far from England. I don’t have a particular interest in England but at least I could speak English ! Actually, I wish Ireland was closer to France.
    It’s such a lovely place !

    Anyway… i’m stuck in France for the next 3 years ! how sad is that ? 😕
