Ille Sur Tet, France

If any had told me a few years ago I'd be living in France and have thought them a bit mad. Yet the road of fate is a funny thing and here I am living in the Langudeoc-Rousillon.

Previously I was a Yorkshire resident living in Ilkley, Skipton and Bradford. A new job opened up the opportunity to live overseas and my initial desired destination was Chamonix, attracted by the climbing and skiing opportunities. More research on France lead me further south and the Perpignan area with its beaches, easy access to the Pyrenees mountains and year round sunshine, so here I am.
