About Us


We started this blog for our family and friends to follow alongside  us on our journey, but for those who've stumbled across this page... Hello!                                                       


We're Graham and Jane and our story goes something like this:

We met in NYC and quickly fell in love with each other, but simultaneously fell out of love with our respective careers. For so many reasons and at the same time for no reason at all, asking ourselves "why not?", we decided to take off for 18 months to explore this beautiful world and the people who live in it.

Thanks for moving along with us on this journey, through what is planned and all the unplanned that is sure to come.  Welcome to our great affair!

Honfleur & Mont Saint-Michel

June 21, 2018

The French book ends around our D-Day trip were Honfleur and Mont Saint-Michel.  Jane had been to Honfleur before and when we were planning northern France she wanted to take me there for a day.  It's a cute little town filled with old buildings, a beautiful old church, a nice harbor and a lot of tourists.  We spent the afternoon walking around town and grabbed mussels and frites by the water.  The following day we made our way up to the Notre Dame de Grace chapel.  A 17th century chapel was where the last king of France, Louis Philippe, spent his time before fleeing to England.   Monet used it in one of his paintings in 1864.  




 Mont Saint-Michel


It is a feeling of awe the first time Mont Saint-Michel comes into view.  The first time we caught a glimpse of it, we immediately pulled over and hopped out of our car for a picture.  So did everyone else.  We chose to walk the 30 minutes from the parking lot up to the abbey and it was great just getting the view as we got closer and closer.  Unfortunately we didn't get to see high tide and we didn't go into the abbey.  Once we were there it was elbow to elbow with tourists so we didn't stay very long.  All in all it was amazing to see!
