Meeting up with a full-time #vanlifer who is doing #vanlife where we met on a small farm campsite in the #paysbasque in south west #france.
Katharina is from Germany and she has given everything up to get on the road with her little car and her vintage caravan.
I met her near Saint Jean de Luz just as she was planning to head off to Spain and Portugal and she has already encountered some problems, like her fridge breaking down and the walls of her caravan falling apart and leaking water into the inside of the caravan, although she remains upbeat and motivated for her adventure.
She talks about the ups & downs of Vanlife, where she has come from, where she is going and how she intends to earn some money to maintain her lifestyle whilst on the road.
More than 100,000 people are granted French nationality every year. This represents around 2.5% of foreigners living in the country and is well above the number in Germany (1,5 %) and Italy (2 %), but way under the UK (4,2 %) and Spain (5,2 %).
Since the Brexit referendum in 2016 many Brits living in France have applied for French nationality.
Before 2015, 386 British residents in France applied for French nationality. The year after the number rose to 1,363 and in 2018 it was 3173.
Why would they do this ? What are the benefits compared to permanent resident status ?

But it’s a long road to achieving nationality:
Firstly, getting a slot for the interview is difficult as the interviews are limited. Then you have to wait at least a year for the actual interview. In the meantime you have to gather together many financial and personal documents getting copies and translations.
During the actual interview the documents will be scruperously checked, you’ll be asked questions about your motivation and some questions about France…. some easy, some not so easy.
