  1. I love your website!!! I do want to point out to you that the American word for “un traîneau” is a “sleigh”. It is pronounced like the word, “slay” (to kill). When I looked up “sledge,” it does exist in English to mean a sleigh, but I wonder if it is used commonly in Great Britain. I have never heard anyone use the word, “sledge” in America. I’d be curious to hear back what you learned about “sledge”.

    By the way, I’d love to hear if you have created the video designs or you have a resident artist working for you. They are amazing!!!

    1. Thank you for your nice words Darlene!

      I will add the word “sleigh” to the translation and I will ask my English friends whether “sledge” is commonly used or not and correct accordingly 🙂 I did learn “sledge” at school, but that’s years ago 😀

      I do make some drawings myself. All the drawings of Paris and the logo on my site are designed by me 😉 But I have to admit that I use a bank of images for my infographics. I wouldn’t have the capacity to draw them all 😉
