Au Revoir Jesse

Fond Farewell to Joyful Jesse

We bid Au Revoir to our resident Irishman

We again are saying farewell to one of our volunteers. Today, Jesse returns home so to conclude his time here, we decided to do a quick interview about his time here and what he enjoyed the most…

1. What jobs were you doing during your time at La Giraudière?

I was doing a variety of jobs, including housekeeping, gardening, building maintenance and helping with events.

2. What was your first impression of La Giraudière?

I thought it was very peacful and the countryside made it very calm and relaxing. It was also such a multicultural environment as well as having strong French roots.

3.  What was your highlight of your time at LG?

I can’t pin down one moment, but I really enjoyed getting to practise my French with the locals, and making new friends from across the globe.

4. What was your favourite excursion?

It would probably be Aubeterre sur Dronne. I went there when I was younger so it was like walking down memory lane to be there again.

5. Would you come back to LG?

Yes of course!

Farewell Jesse
