I focus on helping and inspiring Americans and Canadians learn how to take an extended trip beyond the typical 2 week vacation to live in France for a Year (or more).

Occasionally my writing also focuses on extended trips beyond France such as around the world travel, long term travel, house-sitting around the world and volunteering abroad.

Why Partner or Advertise With Us?

 While all travellers will find  Practical Adventurology aka AnnieAndre.com an informative and fun site , our emphasis includes family and extended travel which I think differentiates this site from other travel web sites. 

We target a unique set of people who want more meaningful travel and are passionate about living life on their own terms while living in France or travelling for extended periods of time.

Re-latable Content: Means loyal and engaged readers

Written by me, Annie André, a seasoned traveller who’s travelled and lived abroad as a child, a teenager, a young adult and now as a wife and mother of three in the south of France. My readers tend to be more engaged because they can relate to the content here and trust the person behind this site because of my transparency. I draw from my own real life experience as well as conduct my own extensive research so my writing style and my content is not only personable but also very unique and not cookie-cutter at all!

Over the course of my life, I have lived in or visited places like Thailand, Viet-Nam, Japan, the United States, Canada, Scotland, the Netherlands, France, Hong Kong, the Phillipines, Malaysia, Singapore, Guam, and several islands of the south Pacific. In total, I’ve been to over 25 different countries so far.
