In 2006 Rens and I decided to move to Isle et Bardais. Not because we didn’t like The Netherlands, but because we loved France so much we wanted to live there. We found an old farm, renovated it and started a bed and breakfast. I continued my work as a corrector of dutch texts by internet and I still do. Rens went back to The Netherlands after ten years.

I really love this region, l’Allier in the Auvergne: full of nature and friendly people. The simple life. If you do too, you’re more than welcome!
