All change … again!

Well, what is it with me? Just last week, I was umming and aahing as to how I could continue my blog, you see, it’s an ever evolving page. Should I take a break? After all, there are surely only so many people who want to read my banter or scroll through my photos and […]

And life goes on …

We are well, we are happy that we made the right decision and more importantly, at the right time, to send Charlie on his way … off to cause mayhem in doggie heaven no doubt! We’ve had the most incredible reaction to the death of Charlie, on Facebook alone I received so many kind comments […]

Goodbye Charlie Boy … RIP

Montpellier–first impressions

OK so we’ve been here for just over 3 months, that’s just about enough time for us to start settling in and getting to know our way around the city. We obviously don’t look like new arrivals anymore as amazingly, we find more and more often, people are asking us for directions and questions in […]

Bastille Day in Montpellier

It’s been really really hot down here, there is no wind, not a whiff, which means the heat seems to build up during the day and it’s quite suffocating. We resorted to putting Charlie in the bath and showering him with very tepid water, he’s finding it quite hard going – that’s why we’re so […]

Join us on our day out!

I have always wanted to go to the Camargue region in the south of France. It is a vast plain of salt lagoons and marshes. It is, above all known for the white horses, bulls and pink flamingos along with a hugely diverse range of wild birds.. How on earth we were going to manage […]

A different mode of transport!

Well this has been a first for me! Can you believe I’m in my 50’s and I’d never travelled on a tram? Sad isn’t it? Well, fear not dear reader I have now ticked that box. And if you’re going to travel by tram, Montpellier has a rather a impressive network of trams albeit just […]

Early Morning Trip … What a Palavas!!

As I explained yesterday, we’ve found a solution to getting out and about with Charlie,by getting up at the crack of dawn, while it is still cool enough for him to be comfortable. While we were in Spain, one of the things that brought us the most joy was seeing Charlie enjoying the beaches, not so […]

We had a cunning plan … and it worked!

At the risk of sounding really boring, it’s very hot at the moment. It’s kind of scuppered our plans for discovering the surrounding area. Poor Charlie is finding the heat exhausting, so for a dog who has already decided he doesn’t want to walk, the heat has totally put an end to any expeditions … […]
