France

I’ve lived in France for six years and have called Strasbourg my home since 2019.

But my love for all things French started with my first trip to Paris in 2012. From then on, I’ve made it my mission to uncover France’s hidden gems.

From Montpellier to Lille, Nantes to Mulhouse, I’ve traveled a lot around the country. And I’m passionate about everything French. I love the culture, history, and language. I’m even fluent in French.

From carefully curated guides to living abroad tips, this is your one-stop France resource!

I’m an expert on traveling and living abroad in France. And I write every guide with you, my reader, in mind. Not only that, but I’ve also personally visited every region, city, and village that’s listed here, so you can be sure you’re getting first-hand information (from a local).

In the articles listed below, I’ve put together everything I know about this fascinating country.
