Thanks for stopping by. This site started off as a sort of diary of life after our move to France. When we first arrived I enjoyed around 18 months of time just to be with me then young children. Since then the pace of life has picked up: my children are starting to form their own lives around school and friends, I have a business to run, and a new one just launching – plus we still have a house to build. This means the blog is quite far down the list of things to do, so now I occasionally post about general “Life in France” stuff but more often I share routes and write-ups from walks, generally suitable for families, and any cycle routes I find – also with a family-friendly slant. If you want to scroll through the whole thing, hop over to the Blog page. Or you can dive straight into a category that interests you using the links below.

Nine months (and a bit) later…

It’s 6 months to the day that we left our old home in the North of England for the far sunnier Sud de la France …
