Loui Franke profile

Loui Franke did what many only dream of, which is to set up a residence in another country. For several years, Dr. Franke wrote a blog of her experiences while living abroad. The concept for her book, Parisian Postcards, was thus born and now offers the reader a collection of short stories on living in Paris, places to visit, historical background, travel tips and photos. She calls them “snapshots” of her life in France. 

Although the primary focus is Paris, other destinations are described that are easy to visit by car, train or plane from the City of Light. It is the author’s goal to motivate those who have not visited France to go, as well as to provide new places to explore for repeat visitors.

For more information, please visit her Parisian Postcards website and blog with some of her latest travel adventures.

Parisian Postcards is available at Amazon.com, Amazon.fr and Amazon.uk.
