I would say something clever in French for you, but it's been far too long since I spoke anything, and i'm sure I'd make a fool of myself.
One of the best summers I've ever had I spent in Southern France, near Cannes. I got college credit, amazingly, for living in a gorgeous chateau on the water and painting watercolors of the picturesque gardens, and boats, and people.
(I totally went into debt to do it, but it was worth it!
Glad to have you with us!
