living without a car

...means lots and lots of walking. Today is the first morning, I think, that Griffin has made it all the way to his school without being carried at all. Rebecca and the kids make that ~2km walk 4 times a day! I'm now wearing sneakers to work because all this walking in my flat-soled single pair of work shoes has given me (or worsened a latent case of) plantar fasciitis. I haven't run now for 6 days, which is making me stir crazy, but even this morning when I got out of bed my left foot still hurts. So I'm taking the bus and wearing sneakers the next few days to see if that gets me better.

Hi my boyfriend and I are thinking about living in either Besancon or Belfort (for his job at GE). I ran across your blog tonight while searching if we need a car. How do you like it without a car?

If you have time, itd be great if you could email me but I understand if you do not. I am very nervous about this move... My email is
