Cé go raibh ar an t-Athair Séamus, mé féin agus trúir daltái eile fanacht thar oíche I mBaile Átha Cliath,toisc na drochaimsire, is léir gur taithí iontach é an turas go dtí Vernon sa Fhrainc. Gan dabht bhí an bia ann thar barr, chomh maith leis an ailtireacht. I gcomhar fórmhór na seachtaine, d’fhanamar le teahglaigh éagsúla agus bhí am iontach againn leo. Bhlasamar an bia Francach éagsúla ar nós “Les Escargots” agus ar eile – cinnte ní íosfaidh mé iad riamh arís! Laethenta d’fhanamar i Vernon, ach laethenta eile chuamar ar thurasanna éagsúla go dtí áiteanna ar nós Páras agus Rouen. Seachtain iontach ab ea an turas go dtí an Fhrainc agus ní dhéanfaimid dearmad go deo air.
