After my three days of exploration in beautiful areas of France it was time to get down to business.
Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays are three busy work days that I spent checking emails, processing applications, updating social media and working on marketing with fellow volunteers.
The work days at La Giraudière are always balanced with pleasure, as the group all enjoy a home-cooked meal together each evening.
Volunteers and interns take turns cooking each day of the week, and occasionally the group would have special evening outings for dinner or to get dessert.
The local restaurant Quai Sud had a variety of delicious desserts, ranging from fondant au chocolat, tarte tatin and glacée. All delicious!
I also had the opportunity to experience the French culture and community. During my last week at La Giraudiere there was a village fete happening in the town next to Brossac. There we enjoyed an excellent feast, wine, a bonfire and dancing.
