Well the last week or so has been a little hectic. I finally found somewhere to live. It is a shared two bedroom flat. The landlord/flatmate seems really nice, unfortunately he like to talk to me in English but we will change that 🙂

The flat itself is a nice size, simply furnished and really comfortable. I have two weeks to get accustomed to it without him around as he has gone away for work, so that makes it easier. However, the last few days have been spent getting bits for my room, sorting out other bits and of course, being in contact with the insurance company about my accident. Fingers crossed it all works out.

Things are looking up. I have figured out exactly how long the painkillers last in my system. 5 Hours! That’s how much sleep I get before the pain wakes me up. But not to worry, it is getting better, slowly.

This week is the week to try and get a bank account opened, start seeing agencies about work etc. I have also found that the people down here are really friendly. I am very glad I was told to try Montpellier before settling in to Marseille. I would have missed out had I not listened.

Oh and I love the french supermarkets! Anyway, I do apologise for the lack of posts and photos, but once I can walk for more than 30mins without being in agony I will take my camera out and do some proper exploring.

Parler a bientôt

Lets try again


I now have my motorcycle back. I have to say thanks to G Force Motorcycles, for squeezing me in, they did a great job and really quickly for me. Considering the other garages I tried were booked up for two weeks I am most grateful.

So, early night tonight, off to France tomorrow.

Being forced to stick around for two days wasn’t great but time to go.

The next post will be published from France. 🙂

Speak soon x

So at this point I am supposed to be sitting on the Pride of Canterbury ferry on my way to France.

My bike has now been collected by the garage and I should be finding out soon what is wrong with it and when they can have it fixed by. To say it is inconvenient would be an understatement, forgetting the money, which I can’t forget, it is the annoyance of having to put off my trip. I’m sure you know what it’s like when you are ready for something then are forced into a change.

Never mind, at least it happened here rather than in the middle of nowhere in France.

Watch this space for updates. x
