You live abroad and love expat blogs. You’ve toyed around with the idea of starting an expat blog yourself. Now is the time. Here’s how to start an expat blog.

Tom, Dagny, my in-laws and I just got back from a long weekend in Brittany (birthday gift to me) and yes, it still has that special sparkle. Here’s a quick recap.

Bonsoir! This is a special weekend for 2 reasons: 1) It’s my birthday tomorrow and 2) I’m now offering Francophile tote bags in the Oui In France shop!
Last month, I launched a little side project: The Oui In France shop! You can check out that announcement post here in case you missed it. Now just over one month in, I’ve had time to sit back, reflect and analyze how things went and where I want to go from here.

Do you ever get so busy with work or school or everyday life that you forget to slow down and…
Tom, my in-laws, Dagny and I went on a canal cruise in Alsace in September and had a wonderful time discovering the region, the canals and the locks along the way. If you’re thinking of booking a similar trip, read on for my canal cruise tips.
