Arriving in France

We are here!!
In France at last.
The photo shows us before we checked in at Perth International Airport on Monday 10 March.

Arriving at Lyon on Tuesday morning Stef's parents were there to meet us. They had two cars and managed to fit all of us and all our luggage in for the drive to our place at Sainte Marie d'Alloix.
Sitting in the "wrong" side of the car and driving on the "wrong" side of the road was a little unsettling at first. Stopping often to pay tolls on the roads was something we will become accustomed to here.
I had butterflies in my stomach as we arrived at our new home. But I need not have worried. The house is lovely, with a great feel about it. The views are spectacular. Today we can see the snow-capped mountains behind the mountains that define our valley.
