About this deal

It’s a feeling that I can relate to – no matter how much you love a country and its people, there’s only so far you can assimilate because you did not grow up there.

To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average.Through the author's eyes and experiences we discover the (relatively unknown to tourists) Seven Valleys area in the Pas-de-Calais, which is now on my "must visit" list.

You just have to take that as read, and put it down to par of the ritual of becoming grounded in another country. e. within an hour or two, to deal with medical problems, French pride in their land, language, literature and ways of doing things are all pointed out, along with many other interesting tidbits. French people esteem their language and being able to converse with them in French can often change how they react to you.

The foods, home renovations, gardens, and a menagerie of new pets make their move enchanting, humbling and hilarious at times. The French are besotted with baguettes, UNESCO says that eating a baguette is “a sensory experience” (someone at UNESCO really likes baguettes! We learn how neighbors help one another, like the time the Marshes nearly ran out of firewood in the middle of winter. Janine tells in her book how sharing everyday activities, chores and experiences on her blog The Good Life France was initially a way for her to stay in touch with relatives and friends still in the UK. Marsh does some of that, and she takes the reader with her adventure to resettle in France from her busy work life in London, a rather popular theme among those ex-pats in France and Italy and other places.
