and Harry Potter y la Cámara Secreta?


My choice of books always comes first! Then clothes fill the rest of the luggage, but
that's really secondary. If you're moving 1500kms, probably for a year or more, you
surely have enough luggage to take four books...


It's probably full of his other books :-)


Sorry, I didn't know other books existed!

When you know that the most effective argument when having a fight with your parents is replying in your target language. They simply quit after the second line, saying: "mhm"
Priceless.

When you're happy you were able to help a person in need, not necessarily out of philanthropical reasons, but simply because you were able to do it in French.

When it's very hot in the sauna and you're about to go out but then Swedish-speaking women come in and you stay as long as they do.

When you realize that those lovely conversations in the sauna are exactly why you're now able to remain there much longer than five years ago.

When you walk into a little Mexican Arts and Crafts shop, not to look around, but to
hear
the owner and her daughter conversing in Spanish.

When your computer insists on giving you a lovely little internet service advertisement
in German, even though you haven't searched for things in German recently. When this
makes you giddy.

When you're in Costco, and you strike a conversation with a woman speaking Russian to
her son. When this makes your day.

When you're in an office supply store, and you get a computer program for learning
languages because it offers 55 of them, and you think that that is perfect for when
wanderlust strikes!

When you feel self-conscious and nervous when typing in a public place or with friends around before realizing they can't read what you're typing...

When your inbox fills up with promotions, not just from amazon.com, but also amazon.fr, amazon.es, and amazon.ru.
