Thank you for visiting my blog: The France Project
I love France, and just about everything French. French food, French wine, speaking French, the French culture and especially French people.
I am starting this blog as a way to document my endeavor to move to France in the next 18-21 months. I’ll blog about preparing for the move, the challenges I encounter along the way; and once I’m there, I will continue my blog and write about my day-to-day life, people I meet and my adventures as an expat!
For now, I live in a fabulous 1940’s apartment building in East Sacramento, California. It reminds me of an apartment that I would find in Paris. I actually downsized my living space from a three bedroom house to this one bedroom apartment a little over a year ago as a step towards simplifying and learning to live with a little less space, but a lot more happiness. My apartment is located in a downtown area with amazing restaurants, cafés, florists, bakeries and bars, the streets are lined with fully grown trees (factoid: Sacramento is 2nd only to Paris for the number of trees in the city). Best of all, my windows look out over a beautiful park with active people walking their dogs, jogging, biking, playing tennis, picnicking and enjoying the outdoors.
I’m sure I have a lot to learn about making an International move, so if you have any experiences your like to share, or suggestions, advice or comments, I’d love to hear (read) them.
Au revoir for now,
