Estelea's Blog

French Mum, humanitarian, restless explorer and doer on sabbatical in Cebu (Philippines): one Attila in each arm, I am exploring the “toddlers safe” corners of the region, while trying to keep some room for Me.

The French word of the day: Parrain

In our family, a Godfather rules with a positive and jolly attitude. Meet Mr Attila’s parrain, my precious brother Jules.


Jules is my second brother (we are 5 siblings in the fam), and no matter how old he is, he will always be my little bro. He can call me at any hour of the night just because he just heard the most hilarious joke and needs to share it with me, right now! Of course I do the same, always. I tried other people at decent hours, but very few understand my stupid sense of humor as perfectly as he does. This guy is the only one who can make me laugh so hard that my stomach hurts. How could he have any serious competitor in the race for Mr Attila’s Godfather?

      I am super grateful indeed. Even though he is 10 years younger than me and I have spent so many years away from France, we do have a special connection that laughs at time and distance!
