My Hikes on “Les Dentelles de Montmirail”

Vous voulez entendre Olivier parler français ? Voici votre chance : c’est lui qui a filmé la première vidéo !

Would you like to hear Olivier speak French? Here is your chance: he filmed the first video!

Le jour suivant, nous sommes allés faire une randonnée sur une falaise avec une partie de ma famille… Woah, c’était très physique !! Plus dur que ce qu’on avait imaginé Olivier et moi – et puis on était les plus vieux ce qui ne facilitait pas les choses…

The day after, we’re went for a hike on a cliff with part of my family… Wow, this was quite physical !! Harder than what we imagined Olivier and I – and then we were the oldest which didn’t make things easier.

Quand même c’était super beau – de beaux souvenirs !

Still it was beautiful – nice memories!

Une autre vidéo prise pendant mes vacances en 2021 – cette fois-ci en hiver. La première partie de la vidéo est bilingue, et puis je vous emmène en haut des Dentelles pour une randonnée tout en français.

Another video shot during my vacation in 2021 – this time around in winter. The first part of the video is bilingual, then I take you to the very top of the Dentelles for a hike all in French.

Discover The Village of “Le Barroux” And Its Castle

Je suis allée toute seule faire une assez longue balade – principalement sur la route cette fois-ci. Cependant, quand je suis partie, le ciel était couvert et c’était ce que la météo avait prévu pour la journée.

Then I went by myself on a pretty long hike – but mostly on the road this time. However, when I left it was cloudy and that’s what the forecast planned for the day.

Surprise ! Le soleil s’est levé et il faisait vraiment, vraiment chaud. Donc ma balade est devenue une petite aventure, comme vous le verrez dans la vidéo.

Surprise! The sun got out and it was really, really hot. It turned out to be a bit of an adventure, as you’ll see in the video.

Can You Understand Today’s Spoken French?

It’s not just slang. The French everybody speaks in France today is NOT the overly enunciated, extremely formal French usually taught to foreigners.
