Birmingham is not so far from Paris – only 660kms according to my ‘friend’ Google Big Brother . But I chose to go by plane. (sorry for the environment). I don’t want to drive on the wrong side of the road so I’ve decided to leave my car in Paris.

I remember well Chantal Kreviazuk’s cover of this song Leaving on a jet plane . It was used for Armagguedon’s movie, the blockbuster with Bruce Willis.

Hope the title Armagguedon has nothing to do with what I’m going to live LOL

(OMG, I’ve just realized this movie is already 10 years old, I’m soooo old. And I still love cheesy music – shame on me :-))

PS: Forgive me if I use too many title songs or lyrics for my posts. Actually, when English is not your first language, it’s easier to take someone else’s words;-)


But I am not feeling so good . Unlike Nina Simone nor Matthew Bellamy from Muse. I am about to fulfill one of my dreams and I’m just feeling afraid.
Afraid of leaving my friends, my family, my favorite cinema, my little “vieille fille” (I don’t know yet the English word sorry) habits, the Seine, my Leffe cafĂ©, my annual buses and metros strikes.
I’ll miss all those things.

It’s something weird. I’ve been waiting for that moment for about 4 years and now that there’s only one week left before my departure, I’m just wondering if this was the right choice.

How come you’re never happy with the choices you make ?

Well, let’s wait and see…
