More People of Nantes

After a month living at the heure française in my hometown of Nantes, we are getting ready to go back to Canada. And as usual, I can’t help wondering if I would be able to “fit in” again in France as a resident. We were short-term travellers there but I did spend 18 years of my life in France after all, and Mark and I have dual citizenship, French and Canadian.

Some aspects of life in France are lovely (the usual clichés—food, cities designed for pedestrians, history and culture, etc.), others get on my nerve. Deep down I know that it’s best for us to see France as a “holiday destination” and a place to explore rather than a place to live in. There are many reasons why I chose to leave my country and ended up adopting Canada and I certainly don’t regret the move. From a practical point of view, Canada is a better place for the three of us.

And after all, why should we have to choose? We belong here and there too, we are citizens of the world!

Here are the latest snapshots of the People of Nantes series.
