... how many kids I had etc. Absolutely wonderful way to have an impromptu conversation in French! Not sure it would happen in Tasmania!
Sally and I have also discovered that the best places to have conversations with French people, are the cafes. We have found a couple of small cafes - one of which I have already mentioned - where the owners/managers are more than happy to sit and talk to us. It is really good because we get to ...

Was a really beautiful and imposing Castle/Fortress in the centre of town and gorgeous winding streets with pretty little shops! Dan is loving behind the Camera and we are playing all sorts of games with Ella to keep her interested! Although she does often say she misses her cousin George. We hope we can find some children soon to enjoy her time ...
