My spring teaching season in France has ended and I’ve moved on to summer camp in Austria.
The last week in France was amazing. The weather was superb, the kids were great and there were NO tourists on the first day of our two day canoe descent of the gorge.
Paddling forty kids boats and fifteen staff boats alone on a river that can have up to five-thousand boats a day on it in good weather is one of my favorite experiences of life. I only spent half the day with our group. After lunch two guys and myself paddled ahead to set up camp and start cooking burgers for a hundred people. Then we slept under the stars.
The next night BJ and I left France for Austria. We’ve been here for four days now and the season is starting to shape up.
