For the first time in a long time I went on a road trip the other day.
I've lived in France for nearly 5 years now, but I've spent most of that time not seeing anything more than classrooms and my bedroom. It's easy to get caught up in the monotony of waiting things out. Doing what you're supposed to be doing just to get by.
Watching clocks tick as you forget why you ever started waiting in the first place.
So this adventure was an interesting mix of my reluctance to do anything and a fun chance to see the beautiful country I live in. There's a lot of countryside to see and it's amazing how you can drive for a half hour and run into a castle without trying.
I've become so used to all that that a part of me has forgotten how amazing it really is.
It also gave me a fun chance to record a trip in stop motion. But not just in stop motion. I had a vague idea as the day went on of capturing the monotony of driving mixed in with those fleeting memories of doing something.
