We have been living in the south of France (for the most part) since 2008. We began the the journey when we decide to study overseas for a year like many students do in their junior year in college. We attended Montpellier Université III (Paul Valéry Université) in Montpellier, a city ten miles or so from the Mediterranean. Our decision to attend school in Montpellier flowed naturally from two previous visits here, one in 2007 and the other in 2005. At the end of our 2007 stay, we summarized why we chose France and Montpellier rather than another country and city. At present we have a "blog page" and a few pages of slide shows of photos of different themes around Montpellier.
