I apologise to all for the delay in getting back to posting. It has been a tiring few weeks. I have almost recovered from my injuries and today actually managed to take my camera out to capture a few images of the city. Nothing too exciting but it was great being able to hold up my camera without wincing in agony.
In other news, the landlord/flatmate arrived back last night, with fiance and her son in tow. Such nice people. Although I am guessing he is a little mad just like me. As he needed to collect his motorcycle from the garage today and his fiance wasn’t here, he asked if I could go with him and drive the car back, with Eliot (the step-son) while he rode the bike. I’ve only really known him for a couple of days. Oh well. I didn’t tell him I hadn’t driven a left hand drive car before, but it all worked out. We got back safe and sound, and apart from my left hand hitting the door once when I needed to change gear, it’s actually not an issue.
Anyhow, I should be posting more regularly now. I hope you enjoy the photos.

Just a quick note to let you all know that I have posted a few photos onto the gallery page. Please understand though, that until I get my Mac delivered with the rest of my stuff, I haven’t been able to edit the RAW files so these are jpg files straight from camera.
Anyhow, I hope you enjoy them, such as they are.
So, here I am in Montpellier, thanks to a recommendation from a great friend who thought I would much prefer it here than Marseilles. He was right.
Don’t get me wrong, Marseille is great for what it is and I do really like it there but Montpellier is so much nicer. I will be adding a few photos at some point so be sure to check them out and don’t forget to follow my Instagram @avfrancaise
The city itself is amazing. Long history, great buildings and amazing little side streets. Perhaps I’m underselling it but I will show you all in photos what I mean.
Anyhow, I am now in the process of searching for somewhere to live. The two estate agents I have been to both told me they can’t help without having a French guarantor or a job. So it’s on to the flatmates websites. Seems to be quite a few available. To be honest it would help me get my French back quicker too 🙂
Anyhow, that’s it for now. I am loving it here and the weather is glorious!
A bientôt mes amis.
