We are a french couple - with 2 boys of 8 and 10 years old - who have been living in Halifax for the last 3 years. The boys are respectively hockey and soccer players. My wife is a nurse and I have an engineering background.
We have decided to take a year off to explore Canada from coast to coast as well as the US and Mexico. We hope this trip will be a great adventure for the whole family.
We will boondock from time to time during our trip and are hoping to meet other travellers that might be able to share some of their experience too.
We have done mostly tent camping in the past but since the kids were getting older we have decided to buy a good old van last year that gives us a lot of fun.
We do not have pets but the kids will love yours!
We are from the east of France but we have been living in Finland for 2 years and in Toulon (south of France) for more than 10 years before moving to Canada.
Our camper van is a 1987 Dodge RAM Van B250 (19 ft)
We had the good fortune to have Jeremy, Aurelie and their boys as our first Boondockers guests.
As residents of rural New York State, opportunities to meet people of other cultures are rare.
Their English is far better than our French.....
We immediately hit it off with them. Just all around good people.
We shared meals every evening along with good conversation, laughs, wine and home brewed beer.
One of their sons entertained us with his ukulele.
Mary Ann and I have made new friends this week, and hope to see them again some day.
We wish them well on their journey home!!
Very nice family. It was short visit but they would be welcome to come back any time!
We enjoyed having the Poste family stay with us one night. They are a very pleasant, quiet couple with two sweet young boys. They are welcome back anytime.
This was an education in Language... French is their first language and I flunked French in HS... But it was fun. We invited them to join us for chicken enchiladas and all went well. We are now a little more 'world travelers'. If you have an opportunity to host them, you will enjoy it...
Was a pleasure to have hosted these folks, would do it again anytime. Hope you make it to Baja.
The Poste Family is a quiet but energetic and funny family, during conversations it was interesting to hear stories of there travels and stories about the previous countries they have lived in, and who can forget Grinding Nemo. They are welcome anytime.
This was fun... Great family, super conversation, a little bit of wine, Chicken Enchiladas.
Our Dog Violet was devastated when they drove away. I think they boys had a new friend that was big and furry..
Really cool that they found us via some previous boondockers.. I guess we provid a good environment for people to stay in...
We wish the Poste family safe travels...
"Poste family" showed up in the late afternoon and spent the night. We enjoyed some wine together and the boys played around their rig. We must have been having a good time as we talked for hours. A very nice young couple on a wonderful adventure with their boys. Any one would enjoy their company, a very nice couple.
We hosted this family and as always I find it a rewarding experience for us. I would recommend hosting this family to anyone at anytime. I wish them the best and hope they make Canada their permanent home country.
