Côte d’Azur Homecoming for a Poodle

Contributor blog post by Jemma:

“Just borrow a dog for a few hours,” a Toronto friend once told me as I contemplated future stories for this blog.

It was a sure-fire way to dig more deeply here, as I do for this site (which – bonjour, New Subscribers! – aims to bring you a snapshot of real life in the glitzy Côte d’Azur). …Continue reading here for Jemma’s story on how their puppy born on Bastille day 2015 travelled to France to spend the summer cruising the streets of Antibes. Her message? Start the paperwork early!

Jemma Hélène

Jemma was born and raised in the US Midwest. A banker by trade, she slogged away at a Swiss investment bank in the UK and South Africa before moving – for decent spaces of time, anyway – to the South of France. At a similar stage, she also moved to the right side of her brain as a writer. She has published articles in Maclean’s, SuperYacht World, and various travel and university presses.

At this point Jemma lives mostly in Canada, but she spends the whole of every summer in the Côte d’Azur town of Antibes. From this seaside town of ramparts, situated midway between Nice and Cannes, she has penned her blog French Lessons since 2007. Each post captures a snapshot of the remarkable, real life of the French Riviera. “Consider these pages my summertime gift to you,” she tells her readers.

When not engrossed in things French, Jemma is - not in any particular order - writing a book, making music, performing motherly duties, expanding sustainable education in places that have less of it, promoting Canadian writing, and travelling off-the-beaten-track: over 90 countries, and counting.
