We've moved in and are working on our farm!
2. EXPLORING NATIONAL PARKS
May - December 2017
On May 2nd, we said goodbye to our friends and employers, entrusted our house to realtors, and set off in our minivan with an 18-ft travel trailer in tow. This would be our home for the next seven months as we explored 32 national parks, 8 state parks, 2 provincial parks, and a handful of KOAs. (Learn more.)
3. VISITING FAMILY IN THE U.S. AND SPAIN
December 2017 - April 2018
We arrived in Maryland during a snowstorm in mid-December, then flew to Spain in February to spend time with the European side of our family. This was the first time Grandad had seen the kids in person.
4. FINDING A RENTAL IN FRANCE
April 8, 2018
We had a hard time finding someone willing to rent to a couple with two toddlers and three dogs, but finally found a house in the town of Eymoutiers, near Limousin in the Haute-Vienne department in western France.
5. BUYING A HOME IN FRANCE
May 23, 2018 - August 24, 2018
We found a property of 16 hectares (40 acres) in the Haute-Vienne department in May. In August, we moved in and started planning ways to turn the land into a regenerative polyculture farm. We are also considering converting one of the old stone barns into a cool vacation rental.
