From Paris to Provence, France is one of the most visited countries in the world, a tourist fascination and dream. This site is a collection of my discovery and learning experiences, while exploring this beautiful country, beyond Paris.
I dreamed about going to France for many years, however, it took a long time before I really got to explore France beyond Paris. After my first trip to Paris, and years of studying the language, I so wanted to live in France! How could I? A kid, my work, my husband, family, my finance!! Oh it seemed impossible.
4 years ago, with full support of my family, I researched, planned, saved, negotiated with my work, to make my dream come true. After 27 years of working, I rewarded myself an 8-week sabbatical to France! I signed up for French language school and began an amazing journey.
Today, I began my 5th trip to France in 4 years! So, this site is written just for YOU. Throughout the site I share valuable tips on how to:
- Get started, by planning, budgeting and saving in advance.
- Explore the breathtaking Regions of France with ease.
- Manage Daily essentials in a foreign country like locals, from laundry, hair, nail, phone, internet connection to grocery shopping.
May your dream of exploring, embracing and experiencing France…est juste là ( just around the corner)!
