Información de viaje
We are a couple from France, in our fifties, and we took a year off to improve our English, meet people and travel. After raising 4 children, we want to spend some time for ourselves. We have already travelled on our own to a few countries (Ecuador, Madagascar, Europe). The last country we visited is Ireland, in autumn 2019.
Coming from farming families, we like to be in the nature, to be outside, to garden, DIY and appreciate the simplicity, the exchanges, to meet around a good meal.... Above all, we want to get to know the Irish people and the culture of this country better.
We see this mode of travel as an exchange between the host and ourselves. It has to be pleasant for everyone.
In addition to arms, we can also share with you our knowledge, our know-how, teach you some French recipes, and if you wish, help you in learning French.
We like hiking (we live in the Northern Alps), cycling, having a good time with our family (we have 4 adult children and a granddaughter) and with friends.
