We explored the petit village of Peisey-Nancroix. Uphill, downhill, and we were done. What a beautiful place! The outside of their tiny church looked rather quaint and indistinguishable. But we stepped inside and were shocked by intricately decorated walls painted with gold. The docent who tended to the church said it was restored in the 16th or 17th century but no one knows when it was first built. (A portion of the architecture says 1300s. 😮) Never underestimate a church in the middle of nowhere. #peiseynancroix#albertville#savoie#eglise#24karatmagic#frenchalps 🇫🇷 #americaninfrance
First time helping someone out in another country-and in another language?
Before it became a world-known board came, Carcassonne was a medieval fortress complete with castles and torture. It’s also where I first helped another person out in France. My buddy wanted to get a knife during our high school trip, but neither of us knew the word. Thanks to a now torn-up, well-worn dictionary, and a ton of pointing at words, the dude got his “couteau” from a store in the Occitanie region. Helping him out was, unbeknownst, the catalyst: Turns out my little language skills was useful to others. Who would’ve thought?
Do you know any blogs/publications/online spaces that could use some free illustrations? Looking to collaborate with some people while I build my portfolio up. DM me or email email@example.com! Especially looking for women-focused stuff! #courtneycomics
🇺🇸➡️➡️🇫🇷: swipe for French! I’ve been watching a ton of Miyazaki movies 👀 and I’m obsessed with their mouths and energy. Ghibli really has me watch a whole ass movie and makes me want to bake delicious food while scrubbing all my floors. 🍞🍖🍲🛁 #courtneycomics
