As I keep saying, and no one has told me this isn't true, 'France is a lovely place to live, if you are retired or of independent means. It is not the place to try to earn a living.'
Which is why, after 10 years, I am off home.
Good luck to everyone who comes here, having done their research (themselves, not just asking on here), to earn a living. If they don't do their research, then they deserve everything they get!
I love being in France but I was to spend money going anywhere else Bangkok would be top of my list, the UK would be right at the bottom!
I do look like Bilbo Baggins at the best of times.
I am (supposed to be) a Maitre d'Oeuvre.
Nor do I hide behind a pseudonym!
