A Year in France

Last weekend I enjoyed speeding across the French countryside by train. A couple of light bags in tow and a fun few days ahead with friends.

A year ago we made the same long journey but then burdened with large suitcases and significant trepidation. The last year has been difficult and the culture shock of French society has been more challenging than I expected. There is only so much that planning can prepare you for.

I hope this next year will remind me why we made this move. With a little luck we may be able to avoid committing too many more hours to paperwork and getting set up.
