Our New Life in Bordeaux...blending Cultures
Just moved to Bordeaux, France from New York State with my French husband and 3 beautiful daughters. We are all adjusting to the French culture..having fun living, loving & laughing each day! This blog is about some of our experiences and observations from the American perspective. I love to learn about what the Bordeaux area and the country of France has to offer and to also capture many of our experiences through writing & photography.

We moved to Bordeaux, France in October 2011 from Saratoga Springs, NY, USA. My husband and I have 3 wonderful daughters - 4, 8 & 11 - they have been integrated into French schools and we are all experiencing life in France - and enjoying it!
