Hello, my name is Emma and I am a French native who is very much in love with living in the Cotswolds.
If somebody had told my 15 year old self that I would one day blog about the Cotswolds, I would have laughed in their face. First of all because I would have thought blog was a rude word, secondly because at that age, Paris was the only place that mattered and finally because my English did not extend much beyond “how do you do?”.
Fast forward 20 years or so and I have been living in Oxfordshire for a long time working as a French tutor, my English has improved, the Internet was invented and I happen to find the countryside very appealing. As we say in French: “Il n’y a que les imbéciles qui ne changent pas d’avis” (only idiots don’t change their minds)!
I would like to share my passion for the Cotswolds through this blog and hope to give you ideas for trails to walk, spots to visit and places to eat if you are in search of a Cotswolds experience.
I apologise for the mistakes I will make while writing this blog but will try my best to do justice to the beautiful English language.
Thanks for visiting my blog.
