Fitness instructor and influencer Rachel Kolisi and her kids are seemingly settling in well at their new home in France.

Taking to Instagram, Rachel said her kids slept well on the flight while she only got about 2 hours.

“We had the kindest driver pick us up with fresh orange juice and chocolate croissants this morning.

“The kids slept well on the flight. I only got about 2 hours in. Unpacked at our new home, and went for a walk to find some groceries.”

She also penned a list of the things she has learnt since she arrived in France.

“1. It seems as though the no aircon thing in Paris/France – is a thing! It’s hot, and we’ll need to find fans asap. 2. The kids and I are going to learn how to say “where is the grocery store?” in French to save us another two hour walk.”

She added that they family also needed to learn what “chicken” is in French and work on their meal planning”.
