Noise!

Well, here as promised is my post all about noise in Montpellier. It’s not something you can ignore that’s for sure! Montpellier is the city of music. We somehow managed to time our arrival in Montpellier (unknowingly) so that it coincided with ‘The Festival of Music’. Don’t get me wrong, we both love music but […]

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 […]

Hidden Gypsy has a new tag line!!

I haven’t written a blog for quite a while (July 24th to be precise) and I’m missing it … missing it like mad, it’s like an itch that I just have to scratch.!  What am I missing about it? It seems strange to hanker over something which I don’t even find particularly easy to do.  […]

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 […]

Raising the Rainbow Flag …

Oh my goodness, this city is simply amazing! We have some friends that live here and they have been kind enough to lend us two bicycles, so we’re having fun scooting around. Although, we really should be more sensible and leave early in the cooler hours of the morning but by the time we’re up […]

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 […]
