If you're going to visit France, read on for my list of fun facts about France. Here are my French facts on life in France!

Eva Hamori's insight:

I liked reading the list all though most of things I have already adapted to and think are normal… Culture shock when we first got here dissipated fairly quickly. You just get on with things in the end.

Some great little fun French facts...if you are looking to move to or live in France - I agree with most of these statements - but also have my own twists living down in Bordeaux.

Why Is Coffee in France La Merde?

Why Is Coffee in France La Merde? | Expat Life France | Scoop.it
Why does the place with the world’s best café culture have no coffee culture?

Via AmericanMomBordeaux
Eva Hamori's insight:

A shot of espresso at the local cafe is all you need in France. It depends on what you believe coffee culture is. Back home we carry giant cups of watered down sugary MERDE, ordered in a thousand different ways. Here, because it is so strong and a blast to your system, it really could be shit and I would have no idea! Cafe creme, if you please!
