Welcome to my blog. This is my first post as I head off to France for the 23rd time! This time it’s a week in Montpellier and a week in Paris where I’ll be taking French language lessons each morning and running the “20 km de Paris” race on October 12.

Sorry I can’t share any of the macarons or croissants from France. A bientot!
