Romasco-Kelly Family

France 2002-2003

In July, 2002, we packed up our life in suburban Seattle and decamped for a year to Grenoble, France. Here are some highlights of the year and our thoughts on why we did this.

Why France?

People often asked us, "Why did you move to France?"  First, you have to understand that France is Mike's dream, and the rest of the family went along for the ride, so to speak.  So most of the motivation for France came from Mike.

Our E-mail Updates From France

While we lived in France, we sent periodic updates by e-mail to a group of friends; a sort of diary of our time in France and our thoughts about what we were seeing and doing.

We've collected these on this site and you can read them by following the links in the left navigation above under "France"
