Oh, take me back to France!
 

I love to read about travel and people’s adventures in France. I know you do too. Explore the books about getting to France, getting around and dreaming of making the move there.

Pardon My French 
By Rachael Mogan McIntosh
An Australian family learning a lot in southern France 

ISBN: 9781922848390

I loved this book. There I have said it. I have pinned my colours to the mast and made a big statement.  Its the true-life story of an Australian family (mum, dad and three children) who head to Sommières, southern France for a year. Mum is the author and what a funny author she is.  This is Rachael and her husband Keiths dream – to take the children on a ‘character building’, ‘life changing’ experience. It takes a lot of effort, lists of things to be done and then, voila, here they are. Maybe I loved it because I am a ‘kiwi’ (from New Zealand, which neighbours Australia) and I got the jokes within the writing, the humour, and the experiences. Or maybe it was just that I had never read a book before about taking a young family to France.

My French Platter 

Author: Annemarie Rawson

A journey to a dream life in France.

The first sentence of this book felt familiar: “For years I had been searching for something that I truly wanted to do with my life”.  I think a lot of us that could relate to that sentiment, the quest for fulfilment and purpose.

 

Annemarie is a fellow ‘kiwi’ (New Zealander). I was keen as mustard to read this, her first book in a series, about her adventures in overseas. 

 

I was keen not only because Annemarie is from my neck of the woods and this, her first book, is set in France but because she sounded like me – moving between phases in her life and ready to enjoy some real ‘doing what I feel like’ time. Whether retirements on the horizon (ahem), the children have flown the coop, or you have a chance for some time out; we can all understand the hankering for something new.
