Having lived and worked in the U.K. for most of my life, I now live in a remote and beautiful spot amongst the hills of Languedoc. This means that I can really get to know this corner of Southern France, and other parts of Europe too. I prefer to travel overland to get a true sense of distances, and especially love arriving at a place by ferry. I've long held the dream of travelling overland through Africa, but I'm afraid I have to travel by plane like most everyone else. When I'm at home I'm busy looking after our gites or gardening, so I mainly travel out of high season. This is fine as I like to avoid the crowds.
