Life With A French Twist

Your passport to France, French culture and Travel

Hi! I'm Annie André, a bilingual Thai-born North American with Thai and French Canadian roots. 

I'm also the writer and creator behind annieandre.com, a travel, live abroad expat blog with a French twist.

Having travelled to 30 plus countries as a child and adult, and lived in 5 of them including Thailand, Vietnam, Canada, the USA, and Japan, I now call France my home.

Since 2011, I've been living the French lifestyle, and soaking up the South of France's laid-back charm alongside my husband Blake and three children. 

I'm here to share fascinating, and sometimes quirky experiences, stories, and insights I've gathered while living in France for intellectually curious people amazed by travel and French culture. 

I cover everything from French culture, etiquette, French food, history, language tips and other aspects of living in France such as visas, paying taxes and education in France.

Everything you read here, I write from my home in Montpellier France. CONTINUE READING
