These Days in French Life - Languedoc-Roussillon

languedoc roussillon  These Days in French Life   because we all love reading blogs about life in FranceThese Days in French Life is Riana Lagarde’s blog (going since November 2004) about, in her own words….

her life as an American food and travel writer, a reformed shopper, now living a rural, “slow” non-consumerism life in the south of France with her French husband and daughter. Poorer than dirt, but living like kings from the riches of the earth.

Riana blogs about Living A Slow Year.

What’s this?  Well basically, it’s getting by without buying anything (apart from food essentials.)  To cope by using what abundance they have: what their preserved last summer, their garden, foraging, bartering, trading, living off what mother nature gives them.

And, you know what, it seems to work.




Rhiana, her husband and her daughter Amaya seem happy enough as these two posts will testify…  A Day in  my Farmers Market and Yesterday we harvested lavender.

There’s a lot that can be learned form this charming blog.  It’s not just about saving the planet;  there’s a lot in there which could help all of us save our pockets.  Walking rather than driving, foraging rather than buying and, above all, not throwing anything away.  Now that doesn’t sound too hard, does it?

To find out more, take a look at…. These Days in French Life.

All the best
