Greetings from France

Post by Mud Monkey on Sat May 14, 2016 4:49 pm

Hello folks, or as the natives here say Bonjour.

So, We have just bought a 1988 Talbot 1300P Talisman II which we found in Norwich the other day, and brought over here to France, where we have lived for the last 12 years.

I am self employed, cutting grass being my main work, the wife is retired now although she gives a helping hand now and then. 

We had a VW LT 35 van conversion before getting slightly more sensible and going for the Talisman. We hope to get away more often now, as we came out for the better life style, but work as usual has got in the way a bit, but now the gaffer tells me that we will go away and enjoy life more.

Any way, hello to you all, no doubt I will be asking lots of question as I get to know the camper better, as you can imagine, there are a few things that need looking at.

Bye for now

Bonjour - I was told if you pour whisky on it the grass comes up half cut, maybe try some of your famous French vin?
