As most of you know, I spent my final vacation days this year on the île de Ré (an island on the West coast of France) before heading back to Munich. It is amazing how energized and happy I feel after such a great time spent there. I return back to a regular routine tanned, refreshed and with a belly full of seafood. I spent 10 days in France, briefly visiting the cities of Nantes and Paris before coming back into the cool Autumn air here in Germany. Thank you Ré. I can not wait to visit you again.
