Yesterday I wrapped up three full days of teaching workshops at the Version Scrap event in Paris, France.
It's been a whirlwind trip to one of my favorite cities. Katie and I arrived last Tuesday morning and did a bit of sight-seeing, visiting some of our favorite places during the first few days as we acclimated to the 9 hour time difference. Mostly it was walking around because just doing that in Paris is so awesome. The event began on Friday and between then and Sunday I taught 8, 2.5 hour long workshops to some of the most wonderful people on the planet. Kind, interested, excited to be in on the workshop - really a great group of people. We all spoke the language of memory keeping. To the students - thank you so much for taking time out of your lives to come to the workshops, to listen to my attempts at French, and for sharing your own stories. It was a pleasure to meet you all.
And serious hats off to my fabulous interpreter Emilie - she totally made the experience that much better: professional, fun, excited about memory keeping, knowledgeable, etc. Loved meeting you Emilie.
As I walked from person to person, table to table, it was so fun to see what each spot looked like from above as the students worked on their projects. I decided to take a few shots with my iPhone of their projects in progress to share with you today.
We'll be in the air most of the day today, flying home via San Francisco. I'm excited to get back to the kids and get ready for Type (new 12-week online workshop) to begin next Monday. There's still time to join in before class begins (registration will remain open during the first two weeks of the workshop as well).
Have a great day!
