I am a frequent expat who has lived in various international cities including Toronto, Montreal, Paris, Tokyo and Miami, amongst others. Adventurous by nature, I am a spontaneous person and always have my passport ready to go. Large international cities are my destination of choice, where I hope to feed my appetite for more knowledge about design and architecture, while experiencing the beauty of urbanization.

Hi there,
Love the blog…my girlfriend and I are planning a house swap to paris in aug.
I just wanted to know a little bit more about taking the “coach” from london to paris…it seems to be cheaper to fly from toronto to london, rather than straight to paris.
And if you have any notes on cheap flights I would love that too!
Thanks again…I will be sure to keep reading.

Thanks for the comment Ryan! I’ll reply to you directly about the info that you’re asking about, since I don’t necessarily want to either a)divulge all my travel secrets (lol!) or b)turn the site into an ad!

Hi Ryan,

I found your blog on Expat Blog where my wife and I also list our expat blog, http://theviewdownunder.blogspot.com.

About a year and a half ago we moved from New York to Sydney and had a difficult time finding a reputable international mover. Because of our experience, we started GoodMigrations (http://GoodMigrationsHelps.com) as a free resource for people to rate their international moving company so others can make informed decisions.

We’re just starting out, so I’m reaching out to fellow expats to ask them to review their moving experiences on the site. If you could take 60 seconds to rate your mover (or even post the site link on your blog to spread the word to others), I would be grateful for your help!

Many thanks,
Adam Vagley

Dear iwonderasiwander,

My name is Joyce and I work for ExpatFinder.com.
ExpatFinder.com is a free one stop website for people preparing to move or working and living overseas. We provide a myriad of services for expatriates and we have over 2,000 articles to help and support the people moving around the world and we are now creating an interview section to help the expats with real life experiences!
We quite enjoy your blog about living in France, it is very interesting and informative. Would it be possible to interview you to further share some of your tips and feature some of your first hand experience as an Expat and your interview will be published on our Expat Interview section as a guide for our expat readers. The questions are mainly about the day to day lifestyle of an expat. If it would be possible, could you also send some photographs that we can use?
Of course, if you accept, we can add a link to your blog or some of your website.
The questions are enclosed, feel free to respond freely. You can return the doc with your answers if you accept this invitation.
Thanks in advance and do let me know if you prefer other means to conduct this interview and we would be happy to accommodate your terms.

Best regards,
