Tales of Living in France

Keith Eckstein 15/12/10 – Reviewed – January 11, 2010

Tales of Living in France is a collection of tales of everyday life in France from an American called Ashley.

Ashley moved to France at the age of 17 and now, five and a half years later she is still here and still trying to figure it all out!

Ashley lives with her husband and dog in a tiny stone house east of Paris. She likes to knit, and take photos.

MrB is her husband and Bandit is their dog.

The blog has been going since November 2008 and has covered a range of subjects, including the vital skill of Getting Angry (in a foreign language).

The Armchair Parisian

Keith Eckstein 15/12/10 – Reviewed – September 23, 2010

The Armchair Parisienne is BJ’s Parisian Photo blog.

I first became attracted to this blog when I tripped over the wonderfully fantastic post…

How to buy a mug in a Parisian Bar.

This, I found, was just one of many, many fantastic posts!

Such as The One I Left Behind which is about cutlery, of all things, and I’m glad I’m not the only one to wonder about the lack of knives.

Before I get on with reviewing the blog I’d just like to say… “May I share a story?”

Wonderful isn’t it?

I bet we’ve all got stories like that but are often too embarrassed to tell them?



The Bold Soul

Keith Eckstein 15/12/10 – Reviewed – June 11, 2010

The Bold Soul is Lisa Taylor Huff’s blog about (and I’m sort of going to use Lisa’s own words here)… deciding to move to Paris, having hit her 40s and found herself labeled “Over 40 and Still Single”!

Everyone thought she was crazy or at least full of shit. But she did it anyway at the age of 45. She sold half of everything she owned, put the rest in storage, packed her suitcases, rented an apartment and got on the plane.

A year later, out of the blue, she met THE Guy, and a FRENCH guy no less. The Coup de Foudre.

They were married on July 12, 2008 — her first marriage at age 47, and the LAST marriage for both of them.

And Paris is now her home: her, him and his three kids, together in a quiet little house behind the big hill of Montmartre.

Oh, isn’t that sweet?


The Carrolls in FranceKeith Eckstein 15/12/10 – Started on August 14, 1998, expanded in 2003 and 2006. Moved to France in July 2009 and having a blast on this journey together.

The Five of Us

Keith Eckstein 15/12/10 – Reviewed – March 4, 2010

In both French and English, The Five of Us is a photoblog extraordinaire!

I like photoblogs anyway and this one stands out because it doesn’t try to be too arty and I appreciate the time taken to do the translation.

From wonderfully cheeky and well observed beauties such as My Neighbours are Resourceful, or Nuts!

To the thought provoking A Little Bit of Sky which sort of echoes through my mind asking questions such as “and what will you be doing when you’re sixty?”

The Joys of Traveling to and Living in ParisKeith Eckstein 15/12/10 – KASIA KONIAR : I once was a scribbler for fashion and travel magazines. Now I transcribe beauty by directing and producing videos for a modeling agency. But it’s my first career that led to all the others, and most importantly, the one that led me to the City of Light: the slightly pretentious path of modeling. Still, I’ll always be grateful for Paris! I was born in Eastern Europe, spent some time in Tokyo, grew up between the US and France, where I studied at the American University of Paris. Here is what I know about traveling to and living in Paris.

The Paris-Sharing BlogKeith Eckstein 15/12/10 – Paris-Sharing.com is the new scene for alternative accommodations, in Paris and beyond. The website is one of very few websites to offer three alternatives: vacation rentals by owner, home exchange, and B&B.  To facilitate and secure these different types of transactions, the website works on a membership basis and features an online community. Once two members agree to a transaction, the site takes care of all the reservation and payment formalties, including security deposits and other insurance. Specifically in Paris, it also provides welcome services and extras.

Totally Frenched Out

Keith Eckstein 15/12/10 – Reviewed – May 10, 2010

Totally Frenched Out is Samantha’s the blog (the blogger formerly known as Samdebretagne – who now calls herself KSam) which comes from Paris these days rather than Brittany.

Confused? You’re not the only one!

The blog starts (or re-starts) in April 2008 with KSam having just split up with Fab (or vice versa – I didn’t like to pry – you know how it is?) and trying to recover her life and become like the old Samantha (the one who used to laugh a lot and have fun.)

For the next few months the blog progresses much as you would expect for someone who has been let down (I am, being a man after all, the master of the understatement!) after seven years of relationship.


Travelling, but not in loveKeith Eckstein 15/12/10 - No longer travelling. No longer not in love. But I don’t want to change the name of the blog, so we’ll all just have to live with it.

Tungate InkKeith Eckstein 15/12/10 – A few words about your host. I started out as a journalist more than 20 years ago, when I was 19, on a local newspaper in the West of England. Later, a job on an international media magazine took me all over Eastern Europe and the Middle East. In May 2000 I moved to Paris to work on a short-lived English language magazine. Seduced by the city, I stayed on to freelance and have since become a non-fiction author.

Viv en FranceKeith Eckstein 15/12/10 - This is a journal of an expatriate Madame. I love calling myself Madame. It sounds so Heidi Fleiss and way more interesting than what it really is, a Mrs. I will always journal freely. I will never say our way is wrong or their way is right, or vice versa. Things are just different even though we are all on the same planet, most of the time. I am not complaining just expressing my experiences in every aspect of my life whether it be parenting, relationships, fun mom stuff like grocery shopping or life, diet, and exercise to sight seeing it is just the blog of a Madame writing freely in France.

www.BillandNancy.com

Keith Eckstein 15/12/10 – Reviewed – November 28, 2009

living on a barge in paris is Bill and Nancy’s blog about living on a barge in Paris.

Normally this sort of blog wouldn’t interest me very much (if I’d wanted to live in Paris, I’d have stayed in London!), but the way that they tell their story makes me chuckle.

Besides, they came to Brittany during the summer so they can’t be all bad!

They have a new blog at… www.billandnancy.com which continues the story of their travels.

I suppose that what I like is that they are doing something different from all the other “hey let’s move to France for a new life” brigade. I bet they don’t sit around the bar-b-que on a balmy evening discussing their Fosse Septiques with their English neighbours!



If you know of any other blogs from English speaking expats living in Paris, please let me know and I’ll add them to this page.

And if you decide to visit any of the blogs shown on this page, why not leave a comment and say hello? It can sometimes be a lonely business (or, rather, hobby) being a blogger and an unexpected comment or email can really put a sparkle on the day!

All the best
