Episode 10: Janice in France Shares Her Story of Moving to Paris at 70

In this week’s podcast, host, Jim Santos speaks to Janice Deerwester, an adventurous and unstoppable single woman in her 70s, who recently moved to Fontainbleu, near Paris, France.

Navigating everything from restaurant etiquette (service in France is a lot more relaxed than in the U.S., it seems) to exploring on the excellent public transport, Janice recounts her adventures in her popular vlog, Janice in France. When you take life with such a positive attitude, every day is an adventure.

Recalling her first steps on starting her new life overseas, from finding a place to live to making sure her beloved pets were settled in, Janice takes us through the early days, and what she fell in love with immediately about living in France. From old-fashioned manners to bureaucratic red tape, the French way of life is not what she was used to back in the U.S., but it suits her just fine.

Settle in, press play, and find out as we welcome you to the latest episode of International Living’s Bigger Better World podcast.
