Kermit (60) has diplomas in biology, philosophy and theology. He has travelled extensively in Europe and Russia and Cameroon. Cheryl (58) is a Pharmacist. We are Americans who haved lived in France for 30 years. Kermit has a passion for history and philosophy (see his www.parishistorywalk.com) and Cheryl has a passion for flower gardening and her family and children, Will (24) and Cynthia (22). Wilcyn, our 15 year old poodle loves company and sleeps most of the time. We usually arrange for him to stay with neighbors. We both enjoy music and ballet and sing in community choirs. We enjoy leisurely hikes and bike rides where we can drink in the beauty of our surroundings and we also enjoy getting to know different cities and cultures. Don't worry if you don't speak French, most people speak some English. Our next door neighbors have a vacation rental cottage on their property. They are friendly and speak English.
