Barefoot Blogger has a fresh look, a bold vision, and countless ways to connect with you.
Today, I am launching an all-new Barefoot Blogger website, a labor of love that marks a fresh chapter in my life. This revamped site is more than just a blog; it’s a toolkit, an inspiration, and a guide for those who love to visit France or dare to dream of a life in France.
I want to welcome newcomers to the Barefoot Blogger community and invite you to return often to experience the fun we have both exploring and living in France. Thank you to the followers who have been part of my incredible journey. Some of you have been with me since the beginning! Your support, comments, and encouragement have driven this blog’s success. I especially appreciate your patience and understanding during the transition to the new site. I am committed to delivering an experience that you will enjoy more than ever before
What to Expect from the New Barefoot Blogger
The essence of Barefoot Blogger remains the same—personal stories and experiences from my life as an American expat in France. I will continue to write about places and people that intrigue me, especially in Uzès, the medieval town in the Occitanie region which has become my French home.
Traveling through France is more fun knowing you are with me. So many places are yet to be seen. Medieval villages — especially the Plus Beaux Villages — are waiting to be discovered. As an avid amateur photographer, I am awe-struck at the beauty of France. The countryside that changes its textures and colors throughout the seasons, the rolling vineyards, and the fairytale castles all mean there is no shortage of breathtaking landscapes to capture through my camera lens.
For those of you who dream of moving to France, Barefoot Blogger will serve as a resource and an inspiration. Navigating life in a new country can be a challenge. Hopefully, you will turn to the Barefoot Blogger website for valuable information, insight, and encouragement — whether planning a visit or considering making France your home.
A Peek into Uzès
Uzès is a place that captured my heart, and I’m excited to share my stories and favorite people and places with you. Here are some of the highlights. It’s only a sample of what you can expect to discover and experience around this charming medieval town. You can even check the daily weather!
The Rich History of Uzès.
The cobblestone streets of Uzès and ancient architecture tell stories of its past. You’ll feel the ambiance and energy of the Place aux Herbes, visit the Place de Duché during special events, and find yourself mesmerized by the rhythm of life in this fascinating town.
Food and Wine Adventures
Festivals and Culture
Uzès comes alive with festivals and events throughout the year that showcase the town’s spirit. With the Barefoot Blogger, you’ll feel the rhythm of the music and delight in the talent at art exhibitions. You’ll join in wine tastings and French cooking classes … that’s not all!
Your Holiday in Uzès
If you’re considering a visit or a move to Uzès, stop here first for tips on how to get here, accommodations, tours and activities, navigating real estate bureaucracy, and embracing the French way of life. There are ideas for side trips to UNESCO sites, the Cote d’Azur, and many regions that intrigue you.
An interactive map with the thirteen regions of France that are within its European borders is a quick way to learn about each area. As we travel together, we’ll fill each region with stories. There will be posts from popular bloggers in some, and perhaps travel stories from you. Stay tuned.
My quick decision to move to France meant I had to cram a lot of learning into a short amount of time. By sharing my stories, you’ll be encouraged to know it can be done against all odds. I have a list of resources to pass you to make your process easier.
I look forward to entertaining you with true-life stories and experiences that color my world. Please join me, and we’ll continue to uncover the magic of France and beyond – one blog post at a time.
