Hi I'm Annie

I show foreigners and Francophobic friends what it's like and what it takes to live, work, study and play in France.

Bringing you weird, wacky & wonderful Frenchness! From destination guides, inspiration & travel tips to personal advice & expat anecdotes.

Meet the live in France guide

Back in 2010 my husband and I decided to take a family sabbatical to live in France with our 3 children.. We sold or gave away our belongings, put the sentimental stuff in storage, applied for French visas and 10 months later we were Expats in France. Flash forward 7 years and we're still here. A lot has happened since we first moved to France. Needless to say I've accumulated a massive amount of useful information, resources, tips and stories that can help anyone survive the French way of life.
