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

Meet The Pragmatist

Sometimes bad things have to happen before something good can emerge! After my husband and I were laid off from our jobs in the same week during a recession, we took the road less travelled- We sold some of our stuff, put some in storage, applied for French visas and moved to France with our 3 kids to rebuild our lives temporarily. More than 5 years later, we've eaten our fair share of baguettes, drank way too much wine and have battle scars to prove we 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 visiting, moving to or living in France.
