Words that mean everything to us ...After getting married (in a forest) in South Africa back in 2001, we moved to the Netherlands, doing flooring and web design. Those 12 years were invaluable in learning the cultural differences between laid-back "warmer climates" and work-focussed "colder climates". In November 2013, we took a 4-month sabbatical in the idyllic Provençal village of Cotignac, to face the cost of not following one's dream and running that dreaded hamster-wheel ... burnout.
"Never say Never!" Despite Victoria vowing never to move to another foreign language without speaking it first, the decision to move south was quickly made. Terrifying and exciting in equal measures. We've downsized our lives and are working as caretaker consultants. And learning French. We're probably working as much as we did in Holland, but the lifestyle and culture suits us. Best of all, our old friend "joie de vivre" is returning.
"Photography is the story I fail to put into words."
Our photo blog shares different aspects of our life, like discovering the beauty of this region, delving into the wonderful world of wine & good local food, spending time doing the things we love, outdoors, nature, wildlife, travelling, camping and going on adventures with our 110 Landy, "Dakota" after a very painful goodbye to our beloved Land Rover 90 "Muddy Boots".
