How to live in France. A humorously pragmatic guide for foreigners and their Francophobic Friends

Hi I'm Annie, getting laid off from my job on the same day as my husband was horrible but sometimes bad things have to happen before something exquisite can! Instead of jumping back onto the "American Dream Bandwagon" we took the road less traveled- sold some of our stuff, put the rest in storage, applied for French visas and moved to France with our 3 kids. More than 5 years later, I've eaten my fair share of baguettes, drank way too much wine and have battle scars to prove I know how to manoeuvre French bureaucracy like a pro. In the process, I've accumulated a massive amount of useful information, resources and tips to help you survive moving to and living in France
