A Passion Project

This site and podcast are a passion project. I lived away from France for almost 20 years and when I came back I HAD TO re-discover my own country. Then I went nuts and decided share my discoveries through a podcast. Listeners responded enthusiastically and have formed a strong Join Us in France community. More about the show.

Get Ready to Tour France

By listening to the podcast you will also learn many things about French culture and lifestyle that you will surprise you. The devil is often in the details, and only a native can tell you about the details! For example, the one word you must master that will change everything is the lowly “bonjour”. We explain why in this episode: Are French People Rude? Episode 9

Visit France Vicariously Each Week with this Podcast

The other group of people who also love this podcast are francophiles who can’t come to France as often as they’d like to, but enjoy having a weekly fix of France in their ears. Sometimes I deplore that the show is too conversational and informal, but this is one of the things long-time listeners enjoy the most. A conversation between people who enjoy talking about France without any agenda.

Under Resource you will also find information about moving to France, about the health care system in France, and the hotels we love and recommend.
