Hi, I left Biggin Hill, Kent, in 1982 to start an Italian restaurant in a small French medieval village in SW France with my French wife (Italian origins). We now run a Mexican restaurant restaurant in Montauban, near Toulouse. Both restaurants were started from scratch and both times we completely renovated the premises and created living accomodation above. ' Camping carists' for ten years. I also write articles for Motorhome Monthly since 2000.
