Where Are They Now? #012: Fran├žois (France)

Student Tours Scotland caught up with François who studied in Glasgow almost six years ago now. In the latest edition of 'Where Are They Now?' we travel back to France (not quite where he is these days though).

Student Tours Scotland (STS): Thanks for taking the time to do a 'Where Are They Now' interview. It's been around six years since you started studying in Glasgow, Scotland. Introduce yourself for us: name, where you are from and one random fact about yourself.

François (F): François Lombart from France, known as Franek in Glasgow. People were considering me as a party machine at this time (6 years ago...wow), now i'm retired from parties, i've done enough there!

STS: What do you miss the most about Glasgow and Scotland?

F: The awesome weather, and the IRN BRU.

STS: What one place in Scotland was your favourite?

F: The bar called 'Common' bar in Glasgow *NOTE - this bar is now closed as of 2013*

STS: Do you think it's important to get out and about in Glasgow and Scotland when you study here?

F: That's part of the job, discover the culture, food and drink habits of the Scottish people. It helps to understand them (the accent is another problem though)

STS: But enough about Scotland. What are you doing with yourself now?

F: I'm stuck in Germany, which is quite bad for a french guy. But i'm becoming soon a happy father.

STS: Have you been back in Scotland since you first left?

F: I've been back quite a lot, but not for a year or two.

STS: If you could offer any one piece of survival advice to someone about to study in Scotland what would it be?

F: Beware the Scottish drunken women, they are doing a lot by themself, and they can quickly jump on you on a night out ahahaha.

STS: Cheers for taking the time to chat with us. All the best.
