This site, Offbeat France, is dedicated to showing you France behind-the-scenes, all those quirks and foibles you won't find in your basic 'top 10' and 'best things to do' lists. Yes, I DO provide some of these (I mean, you DO want to know, right?) but that's not my focus. I want you to walk away from this site with one single thought: "I didn't know that!"

If that happens and you learn something new about France or the French, we will have made each other happy.

If you'd like to delve deeper into the site, please visit any one of these pages:

I mentioned it above but I'll mention it here again: please sign up for my monthly newsletter. Of course I share my latest posts, but I also highlight a different French département in each issue, along with a few special tidbits I don't cover on the website. Please join me by clicking here!

And if social media is more to your taste, I'm there too! Just click through to the social media buttons at the top of this page, on the right. See you there!
