About Me - Annemarie Rawson

Several years ago, my husband, Steve and I, packed up our home in New Zealand, said goodbye to family and friends and flew 12,000 km to begin a new life as estate managers in South West France.  We left our corporate lives to take up animal husbandry and a country lifestyle.

What a time we had.  One experience was difficult, to say the least but the others were brilliant.  The people we met, the friends we made, both French and English, the food markets, the countryside and the most beautiful estate we last worked at, made our whole experience outstanding.

After a stint back in New Zealand we moved to London - for just on three years.  We went for a late life adventure, packing in as much travel, culture, friendship and fun as we could— and managing a little work as well!

To document our time , I wrote Facebook blogs for family and friends since March 2018. Please go to my Facebook page to catch up on our travels, both in Europe and the UK.  I have continued our journey under the Blogs from July 2020. 

There are two books about our time in France.  The first is  My French Platter and the second, My French Platter Replenished  and two in the Late-Life Adventures series: Late Life Adventures in London and Beyond and More Late Life Adventures in London and Beyond.
