Back to the US after 5 years in la belle France

Hello, Bonjour everyone:

Apologies for the lack of activity on this blog in some time. I’m currently setting the stage to revamp its offerings and content to improve its purpose of informing and advising expats and potential expats.

I wanted to take a moment to thank you for your readership and likes and follows, you make this site what is.  My goal is to foster a community of readers, and with your help I will build that.

After spending the past 5 years in France between Lyon, Grenoble and Paris, from teaching English to going to graduate school and working in communications and advertising, I’ve recently moved back to the US to accept a great career opportunity in Chicago.

I’ve greatly appreciated my time of discovery, learning and friendship over the past 5 years, and I’m a better person for having lived in France and made great friendships there with French nationals as well as expats. France will always remain a special place for me, and I know I’ll be back there someday in one way or another.

I will continue to post to my blog and improve its content to share news related to France and expat issues. Now I’m reconnecting to my American roots but keeping my French cultural and linguistic reflexes, and connecting to the French expat community here in Chicago. Quite a role reversal but I’m ready for the adventure.

Thanks again for your readership, and if you have any comments or suggestions for what content you would like to see, feel free to post a note.

Best wishes for Thanksgiving. Posting soon…

    Good luck in your new opportunitites in Chicago, Michael. I know it has been a difficult decision as France has enriched your life. Like you, I have made the decision to return to the U.S. to be near to family. My home has been for sale one year and I can not return until it sells. I have enjoyed your blog and learned much. Thank you for the time you gave in sharing so much! Wishing you much happiness and Happy Holidays.
