a blog turned into a book, rambling but pleasant

Living in Paris is the author’s dream, and this is the tale of buying an apartment with minimal language skills, limited time and no understanding of French ways. Like one of my other favourite accounts of negotiating life in France as a foreigner (Almost French by Sarah Turnbull), this is by an Australian. It is delightful to watch as the unpretentious optimism of the Aussie wins over the more cautious and critical Parisians.

A great and fun read. Especially interesting for anyone who has been to Paris and thought, "I'd like to buy a little place here some day", which is probably most people who've been to Paris. It's a very easy and entertaining read that I would recommend to just about anyone.
