Colin first came to Aquitaine in the southwest of France in January 1994 to start the renovation of a friend's property.
This is the tale of his transition from leaving North Wales ten years later, and settling in the Dordogne department region of France.
The story covers the highs-and-lows of his first twelve months as "a not very permanent resident." He works the grape harvest with a French family near Monbazillac and at St. Emilion, learning to speak and understand the colloquial language of the area, which isn't the French he learned at school and college, and he meets the French lady who is to become his wife.
It is a story of survival and determination, told exactly as it happened.
