The longer you’re in France, the more likely it is that you’ll see something chuckle worthy and think “only in France would I see that.” The Local ran a post a few weeks back with tweets featuring things you’d only find in France and it was a humorous look at French culture, so here’s what I’ve come up with after scouring Instagram for similar finds.
Things you can only find in France
Back in NYC we have subway musicians, beggars, acrobats and more but in Paris, the metro is a place to break out a bottle of fine wine and celebrate. Why not?
Chips are a snack aisle staple and there are all kinds including barbecue, vinegar, sour cream and onion and…. truffle??!!
Bike baskets are pretty commonplace but a special wine holder that keeps your bottle safe and sound ’til you get home? Totally French and I love it.
The post office is open Monday thru Saturday from 9 to 11:30 a.m. Yikes, even for France this is bad.
Here’s the milk distributor in my town where you can get a fresh bottle of whole milk any time of day or night. (And there are apparently baguette vending machines too, but not where I live)
