Welcome! Glad you decided to “Start Here”. France Travel Tips is a website created to help travellers plan their next trip to France with unique experiences in France that are not always written about in travel guides. I love France and whether this is your first time or it’s a repeat visit, I hope my ideas can inspire you and help you save time and money.
Why I Created This Website
My background is in the field of education where I loved helping others. I’ve travelled to France more than 30 times and my friends and family would often ask me to help them plan their trips. I have enjoyed doing this simply to help them enjoy France as much as I do.
I decided to create this website because there are so many unique experiences I think others would like to know about. Every time I go to France I seek out something that the tour books have overlooked.
This is the focus of France Travel Tips because I believe the best memories of trips are not from one’s purchases, but from their experiences.
Who Am I
I’m Janice Chung, a recently retired Principal from Toronto, Canada with careers in advertising and education. I have always enjoyed learning, researching, helping people, and writing and have now discovered a way to combine all of these passions with my love of France.
My Blog: France Travel Tips
France Travel Tips has over 150 posts and 110 pages which provide readers with all sorts of experiences: culinary, active, outdoors, and educational. These experiences have taken place all over France in small towns and big cities like Paris.
I am passionate about France and feel at home when I am there. My posts reflect my adventures in a genuine and honest way. I share the steps I took and the obstacles I encountered. I also share tips that have made my trips more enjoyable and hope they help others.
Where Do You Want To Go?
Here’s a map with most of the posts and locations I have visited in France (and just outside of France). Check out the map and get some ideas on what to see and do. All you have to do it click on a town and you’ll get the name of the town and a link to a post about an experience there. Paris alone has 95 places that I’ve written about.
