  • Description

    Description

    Hi! We're a European family of 4. Our kids will respectively turn 7 and 4 in April.
    After a few months travelling around Asia, we've settled down in the province of Quebec, Canada, along the Saint Lawrence River.
    We'd like to continue to meet people from here, there and everywhere and hope to keep broadening our children's horizons.
    Circumstances have turned us into a homeschooling family and since we're both working full time (I work from home), we'd be grateful for some help with the kids, house and garden.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We're a Scottish/French family and live in the countryside, 10 minutes away from the Saint Lawrence's riverbanks. We're about 20 min' drive away from Rivière-du-Loup, a starting point for Whale-watching cruises. In the area, you can also observe belugas and seals. The area is part of the Saguenay-Bas Saint Laurent marine park. From what people say, we've got the second best sunsets in the world, right after Hawai. If you love nature, you'll feel blessed to be here.
