We recently received some great feedback from one of our many satisfied members.  

Here’s a bit about Marnie Keith-Murray and what she had to say about her experiences with WICE:   

Why did you move to Paris and what do you do here?

Marnie Keith-Murray
I am a sailor and for 5 winters after my retirement as a management consultant, I went south to the Bahamas and the Caribbean crewing on other peoples’ boats.  I crewed on sailboats and trawlers meandering down the IntraCoastal Waterway from Toronto to Trinidad through both calm and stormy seas.  I loved the people I met and the adventures but something was missing from that life.  In 2010, I journeyed to Paris and discovered what it was, and it was the unabated culture and history which I found in Paris.    I had lived in France and Belgium for four years in my twenties and I had fond memories even then of wanting more!
