Dreaming my Dreams in French

Paris or Bust!

I have a dream.

I’ve had this dream for quite some time now.

My dream is to live in France for a minimum of 6 months, but would prefer a year if I can swing it.

I’ve had a love affair with France ever since the first time I visited, back in 1996. I’ve been back a few times and each time I love it all the more.  I enjoy the people, relish the culture and feel more artistic when I’m there.

I have set a goal: Move to France in 2013.

This may seem like a long time off, but I think it’s realistic. There is a few things I need to do to prepare for the move.

First, I need to brush up on my French. (Hello Rosetta Stone!)

Second, I need to figure out how to finance this 6 month to 1 year sabbatical. (PayPal donations?!? – LOL)

Third, research and work out the details of the move, i.e., extended stay visa, a place to live, part-time work, etc., etc.

Fourth, put my belongings in storage and get on the plane!

I’m sure I will add to this list along the way, as I learn more about making an International move, but for now it’s a starting point. If you have any experiences you’d like to share, suggestions or advice, I’d love to hear (read) it.

Au revoir for now,

  1. I saw you comment over at “Top 10 ways to spice up your writing”, am now following you on Twitter, and find your goal to be very exciting. To that end, you might want to check out @JohnFalchetto and his wife @AmeenaFalchetto. Both are friends who live in France, and John helps expat entrepreneurs build their lifestyle abroad. Wonderful people that I think you’d really like, and benefit from connecting with. I’ll drop a quick tweet to John, indicating I’ve suggested this:)

    Love the look of this blog: I look forward to getting to know you! You can find me on Twitter @KDillabough. Cheers! Kaarina

    • Hi Kaarina, thank you so much for your comment and suggestion to check out your friends John and Falchetto. I will definitely do that! I’m now following the three of you. Thanks for the introduction and I look forward to getting to know you and your friends! Cheers!! Deborah
