French Related Must Read Blogs!

“I don’t get it?!”  That’s one of my family members said to me referring to my blog.  She wanted to know why I have it and what do I get out of it.  If any of you have read my blog, you understand that I write because I love the subject – France and because I want to share what I know and what I discover on each journey.  It’s also a way to chronicle my journey each year to see how I evolve as a traveller. 

What first began as a chance to meet up with my friend who lives in London and me in the US, evolved into a deep love and understanding of what it means to be French.  I am French by blood – very diluted at this point, but none the less, I claim it as a large part of my heritage. 

Like most French bloggers, we just can’t get enough of the sights and smells of Paris and the country-side.  They both offer unique experiences with one common denominator – great wine!  The French do dress a bit differently, eat a bit differently and certainly act a bit differently when in Paris versus the country-side but they love the wine the same!

Here are some fantastic bloggers who amuse me, inform me, encourage me and inspire me to travel with reckless abandon to Paris and beyond each year!  Please take some time to enjoy and learn their personal secrets for a blissful time spent in this most glorious country!

    thank you for this list of bloggers about Paris.

    I love Paris and have done probably a half dozen posts on my experiences there. Canal St. Martin, HIdden Kitchen, Rue Cler, the Marais, concerts in Saint Chapelle–oh, how I’d like to go back.

    Nice post. I’ll check out some of the blogs. One of my favorite places for discourse on Paris is chocolateandzucchini.com. At that site you can download as a screen saver a monthly calendar that’s a daily reminder of the joys of Paris, and food and wine. As well as recipes, she serves up information on the Paris restaurant scene.
