Finding me in France – Welcome to the story of an ordinary person seeking an extraordinary life. I’m Bobbi French and I have made a bold decision, some say I’m brave, some say I have lost my mind. I say that after years of medical training followed by years of tireless and devoted service to public Psychiatry it’s time for a change. So in the tradition of ‘go big or go home’ I have sold my house, car, possessions (I kept my husband) and with very little cash and very little French to speak with I’m moving to France to find a new career and a new life.

We try to live as much as we can between France and Victoria, Canada (where I’m from). I love homemade food, French wine, old friends and black chocolate. I am a ridiculously slow but stubborn runner and I am also picking away at the story of how my Very French Husband and I came to buy and renovate our first house in Burgundy for the education and edification of the Bevy.
The Old Cafe – This blog is my escape from the huge renovation project we are undertaking in Burgundy France. I enter our progress each month on our website, but I wanted somewhere I could share my trivial thoughts that are not relevant for the website.
