Awkward expat story: When the French pharmacist talks about your vagina

Written by Diane. Posted in on life in France

French-pharmacies If this isn’t an awkward expat story, I don’t know what is. It all went down at the pharmacy.

We couldn’t have asked for better weather! Then on Sunday, we went to Ile de Re which is an island connected to La Rochelle by a 2.9 kilometer bridge.

Check out what our weekend in La Rochelle and Ile de Re looked like Instagram style!
