About me

I was 68 when I decided to shake up my life a little by moving from the US to a small winemaking village in southern France. Nearly ten years later, I'm still here, loving the French way of life. I write about my experience of deciding to move to a foreign country and about my life and travels in France. Stay tuned to read about more of my adventures, or check out my stories at I look forward to meeting you.

  • Thanks for responding, Patrick. It's an interesting place.

  • Brittany is lovely, Melody. I've spent some time there, but I do hope you give the south a look before you decide--and visit Marseille while you're there.

  • Thanks, Ric. Not sure I have any particular recommendations--funnily enough, I've had some decent Italian food. If you like moule (mussels) you'll find plenty of opportunities to sample moules frites (French fries) Bon appetite!

  • Wow, thanks, Laurie. Your comment made my day! Much appreciated.

  • Thanks, Kit. It's worth a visit, especially if you are going to Provence anyway. I'll be interested to know what you think.
