BACK ON THE ROAD TO JARNAC


It's hard to believe we arrived in Austria nearly 8 weeks ago. Time flies when you enjoy it. We got most of the things done we planned, missed out on a few (we have not met with all friends we wanted to meet), ate a lot and spent some good times with my family. Austria is a special country, peaceful, clean and perfect for a holiday.


It's time though to get back to Jarnac, finish up the house, wait for the container with our household to arrive from Calgary and immerse ourselves into the french way of life for good. If you think about it, we arrived in the Charente on October 31st, 2011 with no clear plan what the outcome would be like.
And now 8 month later, in our own home, we will live in France.  Jarnac.
Isabella will start school in September, a real one in french, not a virtual school in Canada on her computer at her leisure.


Victoria will continue with her gluten free bakery concept, plus some other ideas along those lines and I will get back in the swing of things with my business as well.
And just to add some extra fun to the mix, we will offer holiday rentals in our house by (we hope) March 2013. 


Exciting times. We can't wait.

Have fun settling in...As someone who also arrived in France 8 months ago..we have definitely had some different experiences - but we are totally enjoying ourselves in Bordeaux! Best of luck - and I'm sure your daughter will enjoy French school - my girls are have adjusted well and it's been so amazing to see their progress in French! Enjoy your blog by the way! Have a great summer!

Thank you. We are looking forward to it.
