One Sip at a Time: Learning to Live in Provence

(travel memoir) Release date: January 28, 2017 at Dresher Publishing ISBN: 978-0998312002 192 pages Author’s page | Goodreads  

SYNOPSIS

Can a two-career couple really pick up stakes and move to Provence? Keith and Val had a dream – to live in Provence, the land of brilliant sunlight, charming hilltop villages and the deep blue waters of the Mediterranean. But there were two problems: they weren’t French speakers and they had full-time jobs. So they came up with a plan… Follow their adventures (and misadventures) as they quit their jobs, become consultants and split their time between two countries. Laugh along as they build a life in Provence, slowly mastering a new language and making friends with the locals over long meals and just a bit too much wine. If you’ve ever dreamed of changing gears and learning what joie de vivre is really all about, you won’t want to miss this delightful book.

                      My Review: ****

My first book by this author and it was a great read. This was a short read and it was a travel memoir. I really like reading travel memoirs and going back into time. Just something I enjoy reading about.

The writing style of this book was good. I liked how he described the two places and how that I could feel I was right there. You could definitely tell he knew what he was doing when writing his memoir. A job well dome for sure.

If you like memoirs and traveling books this is one for you. He did an excellent job writing this. Definitely give this a try.


ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Now they split their time between Silicon Valley and St-Rémy-de-Provence, delving ever deeper into what makes France so endlessly fascinating.
