Just an update as I posted last year when I had decided to go and live in France for a year.
Well, I arrived here last November, and after about 6 months had fallen in love with my village and the lovely friends I have made of all nationalities.
So...I have sold my house in the UK and am buying here in my village. I will be 77 in a few weeks but feel half my age.
If you have a dream- go for it before it's too
