    I think it so much depends on where you chose to live. My parents live in the Charente and have an amazingly supportive network of ex-pats.

Yesterday I discovered that had we gone and registered ourselves with the local Mairie, that we would have received a welcome pack, been welcomed into the community with other ‘new arrivals’ and been on the mailing list. One of the things I’ve found so hard here is that I never know what’s going on until it’s happened. Get yourself on the mailing list and you’ll find out!!
