Hi Sarah

How wonderful that you have done this move and I do admire you.

Where about in Brittany have you moved to and do you have any family with you?

Good luck!!

Hello Sarah,

You already had so many positive replies! Majority of us are welcoming and friendly bunch.

If you fancy  going to Zumba class in Combourg drop me a line. We always laugh a lot during class

and catch up with coffee or lunch.

Bon courage!

We love in Dinan & you are more than welcome to call in for a coffee anytime, or if you need advice or help, just ask.

Thanks again for all the support and welcomes.

I must say that I had my doubts about meeting expats after having a crazy time in the company of several in Normandy a couple of years ago, infact it almost stopped me moving to France. 

Brittany seems completely different, thankfully!

Welcome to Brittany.  You're a brave person coming to a new country. My advice would be to make friends amongst the local people, whether they are French or expats. We've been here 14 years and love it.
