014 – Wine, Chateaux and many a linguistic woe: My year in review (September-December 2012)

Here we have it: the end to my year review – admittedly a trifle behind schedule (evidently I’m far too busy and important), seeing as we are now well into 2013. How’s it going, by the way? You having a good one? In this post I will quickly be reviewing my September-December 2012. I intend […]

013 – Clowns, Degrees and Rowdy German Teens: My year in review (May-August 2012)

Part one, covering January-April can be found here: https://jonnygannon.wordpress.com/2012/12/30/012-my-year-in-review-january-april/ May May 2012 was a real funfest for me.  Indeed, to save typing, I took a photo that conveniently sums up my May. Have a gawk: Note the occasional smiley face along with the words and punctuation marks of encouragement in Spanglish at the bottom of […]

012 – Riots, nuns and Nigerian hookers: My year in review (January-April 2012)

Welcome to part one of my fun-filled, photo-tastic, glorious review of all things 2012. OK, not “all things” as such; you’ll find no reviews of the latest music, films or political events here. No, I’m far too self-centred for that. This post is all about MY 2012. Enjoy… So, my favourite number is 12. As […]

011 – My psychopathic flatmate…Part 2

OK, so two weeks ago I began the long-awaited story about my psychopathic housemate. It’s time to continue our nostalgic voyage down memory lane. You can find part one of this post here: https://jonnygannon.wordpress.com/2012/11/28/010-my-psychopathic-flatmate-part-1/ So, when we left the story last time, I had just returned to my flat to salvage any items of valeur […]

010 – My psychopathic flatmate…Part 1

Howdy folks, In my last English post, (some four weeks ago now…oh how I have succumbed to sloth) I detailed the downright depressing affair that is: searching for accommodation in Rennes. By the start of October, however, things had begun to look up. I had moved into a fantastic studio designated for personnel of the […]

009 – Un recadito para los hispanoparlantes

Hola a todos, Empezando este blog para documentar las experiencias vividas durante mi segunda estancia larga en el extranjero, tenía la intención de redactar la mitad en inglés y la mitad en español, para que sea más accesible a una audiencia hispana, dado mis numerosos contactos en México. Ojalá algunas de mis historias les serán […]

008 – Want to find accommodation in Rennes? Flat chance!

As some of you will know, finding accommodation abroad can be the biggest headache of them all. Not only is it imperative for one’s mental well-being to have affordable, well-located lodgings where one can sleep, leave one’s stuff and generally feel at ease, it also happens to be a complete fucking nightmare to do. Lamentably, […]
