What is better than having a very good friend with whom you can train as much as you want during the summer break ? Having him as a neighbor and having a stunning view during training.

Hi everybody, i have to admit that this year I did almost nothing on my blog. I had few personal reasons not to, but today here I am. I do not promise anything, but i'll really try to update our blog a bit more.
It's been 10 months i'm in Sicily. I came here without really speaking the language. Thankfully Gloria is native from here and she helped me a lot for many things.
I also had the great idea to start again my studies here (very easy when you don't really speak the language). Fortunately Italian is a close enough language from French, so i eventually learned quick enough.
Next week will set the start for my second semester exams, that i hope to pass successfully.
