Here are my family’s views of France one week in to our adventure.
General impressions – Bloody bars are shut but I love the pace of life.
Best food – Chips in Carnac
Best drink – Breton beer
Best place – I like the village where we are staying as it is quiet and gentle
Biggest surprise – Quiet roads
Biggest shock – bars shutting at 8pm
Best new contact – Meeting a man on our dog walk and discussing Brexit and French history.
“It is fun and much better than England because you can go out without worrying about being attacked. I can wander down to the shop really quickly. I like it not being as noisy as where we lived before.”
Best food – Toulouse sausages
Best drinks – Orangina
Best place I cannot choose one as everywhere is nice
Biggest surprise – a lovely balcony
Biggest shock – no Internet or phone installed as that was quite annoying.
Best new contact – the little dog at the bar we visited
It is great. The UK was full of bad luck but that is not the case here in France.
Best food – pain aux chocolats although the apple slippers (turnovers!) are good too.
Best drink – Cherry cola
Best place – the local Brocante
Biggest surprise – Cherry Cola being available in France
Biggest shock – Lack of Internet at our new house.
Best new contact – the lady who sold me an electronic journal for just 2 Euros.
General impressions of France – Everything seems low density and spaced out which makes you want to explore.
Best food – Baguette
Best drink – Cider!
Best place visited – the chateau in Josselin
Biggest nice surprise – Our dog settling in so well and my new television that my parents bought me
Biggest shock – Lack of Internet!!!!
Best new contact – the man we met on our late-night dog walk. It was great to have someone new to talk to about politics and I liked how it just happened randomly when I was not expecting it
Whether you are an expat of have visited as a tourist, I would love to hear your family’s views on France.
