Let’s go behind the scenes here at Oui In France and look at my blogging process. Sometimes it is and the words just flow. But other times, it’s way more involved than that — both before and after publishing the post!
You don’t have to look very hard online to find a foreigner abroad looking for some of the comforts of home. Here’s where to buy American food in France. Everything from baking supplies to candy and even beverages.
How do we move past something that still bothers us so deeply? That we still think about. Things we wish would have gone differently. This post is on forgiveness.
The edible cookie dough trend is making waves in the US but what about France? Not exactly. Cookie dough in France is for baking… but here’s where to turn if you want to get your fix.
Oh, la vache am I excited today! Welcome to a new look here on Oui In France! If you’re reading this on your phone or tablet, I invite you to pick this post back up when you’re on a computer so you can see what’s new!
How many blogs do you read on a regular basis? 5? 100 or more? Do a handful of bloggers rise to the top of your favorites list? Here’s why I read your blog and keep coming back.
This post is a collaborative effort between my dad and me on boating in France tips. He’s been a fisherman and an avid boater his whole life and then was a professional captain for 12 years in the New York harbor.
Did someone say online shopping/browsing? I’m in. 😉 A ton of bloggers do regular shopping roundups called “Things I’m loving…
I admit that I’m easily impressed, but even the most discerning traveler will fall in love with everything the Charente-Maritime has to offer. Let me tell you about our visit to the Marais Poitevin and more!
A few weeks ago, Tom and I headed to the Charente-Maritime department of France and drove to the Ile de Ré for the day. Just a short drive from La Rochelle, it’s officially made my short list of my favorite places in France.
Here’s a video of our France canal cruise on the Canal du Midi. Pretty doesn’t even begin to describe it! Read on for our DIY canal cruise Canal du Midi trip!
Our long weekend kicked off in La Rochelle, a coastal city about 470 km from Paris whose history is just as impressive as its modern-day approach to life.
While recently in Saint-Emilion, I discovered Rewined candles at a gift shop after the wine-inspired label caught my eye. Here’s why Rewined candles and soaps might just make a perfect gift for someone in your life!
After our first self-piloted canal cruise, people asked me whether or not someone new to boating can do this type of vacation. Can a total beginner handle a canal boat? What’s a good beginner canal cruise?
DIY canal cruises in France are a once-in-a-lifetime experience and you HAVE to try it for yourself. We headed south to the Camargue, and from there, headed west ending up in the Canal du Midi aboard a Nicols canal cruise boat. No special training or boating licenses are required making this sort of trip accessible to everyone.
My parents are here for the rest of the week and we all just got back from a big trip down south. We did our second canal cruise aboard a Nicols boat and I’ll be telling you all about that soon. Until then, I’m sharing photos from our pit stops before and after our cruise in Carcassonne and Saint Emilion.
How can you bring wine back from France? All you need is to have one bottle of red wine explode in your suitcase to never want to try to transport wine on a long-haul flight ever again.
From home decor to beauty products to jewelry and so much more, Etsy is your one-stop shop for handmade everything. Let me share some of my favorite France-themed Etsy shops.
OK, now that you know the neighbor situation, you’ll understand why I found this “good neighbor” policy so funny. You see, a family member was searching for an apartment to rent in South Florida and came across a very interesting link on one property management’s website. Not only would something like that never work in France, but it even left me scratching my head!
Do you know how the French write numbers? Let’s talk about how to write numbers in French. There are a few slight differences between the way Americans and the French write numbers. Let me show you what numbers are written differently and what to watch out for. Handwriting isn’t always clear so the way the French write numbers is something to be aware of when in France.
